'Gully Boy' Movie Review: Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhat make it 'bahut hard' for us to find flaws

'Gully Boy' is a story of making room for your extra-large dreams in a 10X10 'kholi'. We're giving it 4.5 stars out of 5.

Film: Gully Boy

Cast: Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Vijay Raaz

Director: Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti

"Bahut hard, bahut hard!"

If there's one thing Gully Boy has ensured, it is introducing us to this new adjective we can use to describe just about anything we love.

A song. A film. An emotion. And all of these things, together, make Gully Boy.

Trust Reema Kagti and — with its clogged drains and heaps of garbage, its tin-roofed slums and sweat-marked shirts — delivers 100%.
