Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy pieces together snippets of life from the slums and the Mumbai underground. There are contrasts thrown in. United Colours of Benetton meets the fake Adidas stripes here. Shweta is Sky and Murad is Gully Boy. Through their alter egos, these music-makers give voice to everyday issues and contrasting lives.
Within Murad’s life, we meet Safina. The ‘childhood’ that Murad has been in a relationship with since he was 13 years old. She wants to wear lipstick, go out with boys, party, leave the hijab at home, pursue a career in surgery. But then there is her reality to deal with: getting married, running a home, sneaking out at 10 in the night to see her boyfriend on a big day.
Ranveer Singh throws his lot behind Murad. From the kohl in his eyes to the pain in his lyrics, Ranveer Singh brings the story of a slumdog alive on the big screen. His accent is on point. He digs his claws into his character and comes out with a performance to remember. Not his best performance, perhaps (Alauddin Khilji would still take that cake), but a close second.
