In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Gully Boy 3 stars out of 5. "Gully Boy can be whole-heartedly commended for its craft, fascinating characters and Ranveer Singh. He absolutely kills the slow-burning rapper act. He is well supported by feisty Alia Bhatt," Saibal Chatterjee wrote.
In Gully Boy, Ranveer plays a budding street rapper from the slums of Mumbai and Alia stars as his love interest. When Ranveer was earlier asked why he signed up for the film, he said, "Hip-hop is something that's very alive inside me and always has been ever since I was a kid. I have a natural affinity and inclination towards it and I was thrilled to be in Zoya's Gully Boy because I had always wanted to do such a film," news agency IANS reported.
Gully Boy is inspired by lives and work of rappers Divine and Naezy and both of them are closely associated with the film.
Gully Boy, directed by Zoya Akhtar, also stars Kalki Koechlin, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Vijay Raaz.
