It chronicles the story of a standard boy Murad, from Dharavi, who dreams big and refuses to let adversity squash his spirit.
The story kicks off in a match-box sized chawl room in Dharavi, where Murad dreams of a better life.
His life takes a dramatic flip once one day he sees mc Sher aka Shrikant, rap a few college boys to shame, after they’ve booed a girl offstage.
The story and screenplay by Reema Kagti and Zoya scores high, has flair and finesse with beautiful touches on the edges.
It’s simply the type that raises the tempo of the narrative a notch higher.
The actuation of the film tho’ is that the performance by Ranveer Singh.
He was born to play this half and also the means he raps his soul move into the film, makes it a killer set.
He breathes life, despair, high spirits and belief into his role.
A line in the film where MC Sher tells Murad says, ‘Tere andar toofan hai’ is bang on.
With each new performance, the actor brings in a tidal wave of surprises.
Equally brilliant is Alia Bhatt, in a smaller, but deeply impactful role.
The actor brings easy ease into the fiery eccentricities of her character.
The chemistry between Ranveer and Alia is cute, angelic and fiery, too.
Siddhant Chaturvedi, in his 1st film, deserves a dab of honour.
He’s easily one of the most effortless actors in showbiz.
Vijay Varma, Kalki Koechlin and Vijay Raaz are all superb in their respective roles as well.
The music of the film is killer, too.
The movie is galvanized by the lives of rappers Naezy and Divine, and these Indian artistes, along with a whole host of their contemporaries, have scored a super soundtrack
for the film.
There’s a reason the film feels legit and that’s all the way down to the actual fact that real rap artistes worked on this film.
The treatment and also the visual finesse of the film ar at par with something you’ve seen from Hollywood or anyplace round the world.
The rap battles showed within the film ar absorbing and an inventive piece of writing.
And in true rap vogue, let’s simply say… yeh vale Boy hard hai bhai!
