#GullyBoy is a cinematic masterpiece#ZoyaAkhtar is in my book the best director in the country right nowThe film is a technical and emotional triumphHave no words to describe the brilliance of @RanveerOfficial n @aliaa08This is 1 of the 10 best Hindi films that I’ve seen— atul kasbekar (@atulkasbekar) February 12, 2019
I am sorry for being on a rant literally but what makes #GullyBoy stand out is its progressive outlook towards relationships, fight against patriarchy, social bondage and more. It will make you believe in dreams! Don’t give up because ‘apna time aayega’! ♥️— Bhavna Agarwal (@tadfilmy) February 13, 2019
I am freakin’ loving @RanveerOfficial and @aliaa08 in this film. The pace, the built of the story. The sound design, the subtext. There is a sense of humor in telling a dark story that is executed beautifully. #ZoyaAkhtar, you are a star. #GullyBoy— Mahwash Ajaz (@mahwashajaz_) February 14, 2019

A very special mention for this exceptionally Talented @aliaa08 who combined all her emotions play #Safina so Effortlessly. Ladki itni hard hai, saamne Chota har Pahaad Hai. #GullyBoy #ZoyaAkhtar @RanveerOfficial @excelmovies @FarOutAkhtar @ritesh_sid @kagtireema @tigerbabyindia— Nakul Malhotra (@NakulMalhotra19) February 14, 2019
Take a bow @ZoyaAkhtarOff you are undoubtedly one of the best filmmakers @RanveerOfficial @aliaa08 and the entire cast of #GullyBoy – you’ve set the bar too high. Insane performances. Do yourself a favour and go watch it today.— Akanksha (@iAkankshaa) February 14, 2019
Won’t get to see this again for the first time, trying to consume it all in. First half done. Mazboot. #gullyboy— Rohan Bajaj (@iRohan53) February 14, 2019
There is no stopping Safina (Alia Bhatt), neither his conservative parents nor insecurities of her character. She is the soul of the movie alongside the impeccable soundtrack. No current actress does meltdown scenes better than Alia & Zoya used that to perfection here. #GullyBoy— R! (@WeirdlyProbable) February 14, 2019
#GullyBoyReview One word Review: S.L.O.W- P.O.I.S.O.NIt spreads like a poison and at the end, we feel our whole body is immersed in #GullyBoy . #AkhtarHouse is full of massive talent & hard to choose one out of @AzmiShabana , @Javedakhtarjadu , @FarOutAkhtar , @ZoyaAkhtarOff .— Vikas Jain (@PalPalDilKePaas) February 14, 2019
