From its 18-track album, which brings together 54 artistes, to the performance of the actors, people can’t stop obsessing over the movie. “First half was awesome. Second half even better! #Gullyboy is amazingg!! Love him or hate him, Ranveer Singh is a superstar. And he’s best actor of his generation, brilliant performance. Alia Bhatt very good,” read one of the many comments trending under the hashtag #GullyBoy.
Check out some of the many reactions to the movie on Twitter:
#Gullyboy left me speechless. It really is my story. I’m shivering as I type this because I’ve not seen something of this sort in a Hindi film before. Never sung along like I did here. Never cried like I did here.

Simple story filled with complex characters (well all the characters from the Gully anyway) beautifully directed. Ranveer Singh is fantastic as expected. The only issue for me was that the climax could have been a bit more intense for such a story.
