Aslo, Gully Boy received great appreciation from global audience at the Berlin film festival, where it had its world premiere.
Film critic Rajeev Masand rated the film 4/5. In his review of the film, he wrote, "I think 'Gully Boy' is one of Zoya Akhtar’s stronger films; in fact for me it ranks right up there with her extraordinary first film Luck By Chance. I enjoyed the world she creates here, the characters that inhabit this world, and the paces she puts them through."
Mentioning about Ranveer's performance in the movie, he wrote, "A big chunk of his performance in this film plays out on his face in his expressions. There are stray moments that bristle with honesty. He gets even the little things down superbly; it’s clear that he’s an extremely intuitive, perceptive actor."
It is likely that the film will compete with big hits of Bollywood like Thugs of Hindostan, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Baahubali 2 (Hindi), Sanju and Singham Returns. Let's see how far the 'Gully Boy' craze goes on.
