Gully Boy Critic Reviews & Ratings

The treatment and the visual finesse of the film are at par with anything you’ve seen from Hollywood or anywhere around the world.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-4/5
It’s nearly two and a half hours and that’s too long for a film whose basic story arc – the underdog narrative – is actually quite predictable.

Some of the predictable arcs, are, well, predictable. But, ultimately, this is a film to enjoy.

A Softer Than Expected, But Hugely Entertaining And Beautifully Made Street-Rapper Story.

Gully Boy, an underdog story shining a light on India’s incipient hip-hop subculture, is the first great Hindi film of 2019 and a rousing celebration of spunk.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3/5
Gully Boy's tone isn't abrasive enough to provoke and disturb. At its best, it sparks emotions, but the impact remains largely on the surface.

Be warned – some of rap battles go on for much too long. Gully Boy has a measured pace with a 2 hour 36 minute-running time and you will get restless.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-4/5
This is a new kind of 'Angry Young Man' movie, in effect - seamlessly merging sub-culture with pop mainstream.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-4/5
Extensive soundtrack put together by an eclectic mix of wordsmiths and musicians is the heartbeat of Gully Boy. And Zoya's script soaks its fierce energy to provide majority of the subtext.

Based on a slum rapper’s struggle to get by life, this is a film that doesn’t let you sink into your seat even for a moment.

  • DNA | Review By - Meena Iyer | Rating-4/5
Don't be surprised if you find yourself singing along in the theatre, moving in your seat, like you're mesmerised.

  • India Today | Review By - Ananya Bhattacharya | Rating-3/5
Gully Boy suffers from a slow pace. The film takes its own sweet time to establish the story. And when it does, there too little to bask in the glory of.

GULLY BOY is not the usual entertainer and this becomes evident in the first scene itself. However, the goings on are very interesting and suck you into the world of these characters.
