Gully Boy is a celebration of life in Asia’s largest Slum. It does not demean the society but brings it to light in a beautiful manner without the frills and fancy of a typical Bollywood film. No naach gaana, no dishoom dishoom, just plain story-telling with its heart in the right place.
Raazi celebrates unsung heroes in India’s war; Sehmat is one of them. A huge plus here is that Meghna could have had the audience stand up in attention towards the end by having the National Anthem played; she stays away from rhetoric.
