Here are some twitter reactions about the film, you can check.
Spent more than 2 hours in a queue to get a ticket, walked for miles, almost got trampled and died amongst crazy fans at the red carpet, almost broke my only surviving pair of glasses, and waited for hours without eating. #GullyBoy was totally worth the hassle! 1/2

About #GullyBoy I'm gonna say something. There are yearly 400 movies at the Berlinale. I choose every edition to see 30-35. I chose Gully Boy because it was from India 🇮🇳 and they are making great movies in the last years. I had no clue what the movie was about. What a present ❤

he (Ranveer Singh) has the boyish charm to pull off the role, and he raps like a pro to boot… Contemporary Indian rappers add a note of authenticity but there’s no denying who’s the star of this show – Variety #GullyBoyReview #GullyBoy

For Rajeev Masand it was the power of music and lyrics that brought out a beautiful coming of age love story. Ranveer Singh performed extraordinarily well. This was for him a love letter to Mumbai.
According to Anupama Chopra though the duration of the film is way too long but Ranveer Singh’s sophisticated acting skill proved the best for this socio-cultural milieu.
One of the first Western critic for this film is Hollywood Reporter. It said the film belongs to Ranveer Singh but the women characters are extremely strong to be alongside him. Though for them the story line maybe a bit like Star is born but the high quality music and the excellent camera work by Jay Oza brought out the originality Zoya Akhtar wanted to portray.
So, did you book your tickets already?
