Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starter ' Gully Boy' releases today.The film also have Kalki Koechlin.
Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy chronicles the journey and struggles of rapper Divine who rose to fame with the song Meri Gully Mein. Ranveer Singh is said to play the role of the struggling rapper who took to the rap to express his struggles. Alia is playing a demure girl from a conservative background just like Ranveer Singh.
Ranveer Singh is seen surrounded by wannabe rappers who challenge him to have a duel. He also talks about how the raps these days only talk about women, money, car, Lamborghini, etc. Ranveer also meets naysayers who pull him down saying,'naukar ka beta naukar hi banega.'
Alia Bhatt's charcter is audacious,bold,outspoken d courageous. She comes out with the wittiest one-liner when a woman (possibly her employer) asks whether she knows how to cook. She talks in a snazzy way to Ranveer Singh, who appears to be his love interest in the film. In one of the scenes, she is also seen smashing a glass bottle on someone's head.
Vijay Raaz as Ranveer's father brings the needed grit, anger and control on the screen in the scene where he is thrashing his non-conformist son for not being studious enough.
It's impressive to see how Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh are playing diverse characters in each of their film. Alia was last seen in Raazi in which she played the role of an Indian spy who is married off to a Pakistani man.
Ranveer Singh played a rowdy cop in Simmba, which was a commercial film. In Gully Boy, he looks lean, defeated at some points yet determined.
