Earlier this week, Zoya Akhtar’s highly anticipated film titled Gully Boy dropped its power-packed teaser, which had glimpses from its song called Asli Hip Hop. The teaser was well received amongst the masses and made everyone earnestly look forward to the trailer.
And now, the trailer has launched and rest assured, it is incredible in every aspect!
Gully Boy shows Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in unique avatars, especially Bhatt with her whole hijabi look.
Singh plays the character of an aspiring street rapper from the underbelly of Mumbai.
The trailer depicts he turns his many struggles and hardships into inspiration and writes rap lyrics out of it. His whole lower-middle class look is pretty convincing, and refreshing to see after he constantly witnessing him as royal Sanja Leela Bhansali characters.
Bhatt, playing the character of rebellious Muslim girl named Sakina, has perfected her street girl avatar as well, and not just in terms of appearance. The few glimpses of her character finely show Bhatt’s acting chops, making every timid girl aspire to be as outspoken and straightforward as her one day. She shares a romantic relationship with Singh’s character, but the inclusion of Kali Koechlin’s character has left everyone wondering what exactly is their relationship dynamic.
Apparently, Gully Boy is based on the lives of two Mumbai based rappers, Vivian Fernandez alias Divine, and Naved Shaikh alias Naezy. One of the best things about the film is that Singh has made use of his own voice to rap, and has done a stellar job at it so far.
Judging by the trailer, the film seems very promising, and will hopefully set benchmarks for all other Bollywood films to come. Also considering how Zoya Akhtar’s previous films like Zindagi Na Milay Gi Dobara remain cult favorites to this day, this film expectantly won’t despise.
Nevertheless, it has got everyone on edge till it finally drops this Valentine’s Day. Check out the trailer below and let us know how you like it!
