Storyline

Gully Boy is a film about a 22 year old Muslim kid from a ghetto in Bombay. The boy is a rapper, and the story is his journey from realising his love for rap, to chasing his dream, and to inadvertently transcending his class. Authentic Hip Hop in India is a recent phenomenon and like anywhere else in the world, is rising from the streets. It is the only true political space in music right now and it's coming from people that have nothing to lose, the colonised poor.

A film for mumbaikers: hard hai bantai
14 February 2019 | by Ankit_69See all my reviews

Its an entertaining movie to watch for and is worth watching too.. Mostly the mumbaikers can relate to the movie as the whole movie is based in Dharavi. Everyone is good with their character and it was great to see Vijay Raaz as always. He is indeed a very good actor. To the one who don't understands the rap culture, the movie will be quite overrated but trust me its not. To the one saying the movie is a copy of 8 miles must watch the movie, this is how the story of rapper can be exactly displayed. And Ranveer was outstanding with his part and "Apna Time Aayega" is just outstanding work by Ranveer, If you feel the character then its also an inspiring story.. According to me its definitely worth watching :) And the one calling Ranveer Singh's character as overacting are the one who don't understand Mumbai's local language
