PLOT : A coming-of-age story based on the lives of street rappers in Mumbai.
MOVIE REVIEW : The song from the movie promises “Asli Hip-Hop se milaye Hindustan ko” and the team has successfully introduces the real hip hop to Indian audience. Hats off to Zoya Akhtar who made this compelling movie on the rappers. The music inspired by the lives of rappers Naezy and Divine is the soul and backbone of this movie.
Ranveer Singh has done a commendable job again, this one is also add up to his career best performances. His acting, his accent & the rapping, viewers can’t take their eyes off him whenever he comes on the screen. Alia Bhatt as Murad’s girlfriend Safeena gives the film a comic flavor in the first half and in her limited screen time, she shown her acting chops. She beats up girls who try to flirt with her boyfriend, she played a feisty Muslim girl very impressively. Siddhant Chaturvedi as MC Sher has done effortless debut and equally brilliant. Other supporting casts are perfect in their respective roles, Vijay Raaz as Murad’s father, Kalki Koechlin as Sky and Vijay Varma as a friend gave the decent performances.
First half of the film is bit slow, it takes a while to establish the storyline but by the time of intermission the film manages to engage its viewers. The film got a perfect pacing when Gully Boy meets MC Sher & Sky. The second half of the film has lots more to offer, the rap battle are so entertaining that you just don’t want it to end.
Overall Hit ya Flop Rating: 3.8 out of 5
Package of Good Songs, Awesome Music & Bahut Hard Lyrics. Definitely a brilliant film & a worth watch.
