What is the story of the rapper Divine on whom Ranveer Singh’s movie Gully Boy is based on?
As a fan of rap music in India, I think this is a movie that can be on par with 8 miles. If you don’t know what 8 mile is, then you don’t deserve a good Indian rap movie.
About the Movie.
Gully Boy is a movie based on the life of underground rapper Divine who hails from the streets of Mumbai and has become a big name in the Indian rap game and the music scene of India.
This movie has Ranveer Singh playing the role of Divine and is directed by renowned director Zoya Akhtar. Gully Boy also stars Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin, in pivotal roles.
Trailer Breakdown
Gully Boy Trailer Breakdown has been one of the toughest trainers I’d had to do. While initially, I thought that the Gully Boy movie is copied from Eminem 8 Mile, and people talking that Gully Boy copied 8 Mile, I’d have to say that that’s not the case.
That is how underground Rap looks like all across the world, and which is why it is the same in Gully Boy Trailer and in 8 miles as well.
Why I think It’ll Be Good
What is to be appreciated is that Gully Boy Trailer does a good job of depicting the story of Diving & Nazey, and Zoya Akhtar has said that this is not a divine biopic or a nazey biopic, but a fiction version of Divine & Nazey story. Ranveer Singh plays divine and looks pretty good in the trailer.
Now talking about Gully boy, these are the reasons I’m especially excited about the movie:
It’s got a great cast in Ranveer Singh, Alia & Kalki.
The story is based on Divine, one of India’s best rappers.
It’s about the GOOD RAP IN INDIA, not the Honey Singh & Baadshah .
The Trailer looks very promising.
There are some scenes that they’ve copied from the 8-mile movie, I’ve talked about them in the video below. You can watch it here:
I’d be more than happy to discuss in the comments if anyone wants to in the comments here.
Thanks for reading, and thanks for watching.

Divine Biography / Wiki / Early Life / Family’s Contribution

Divine began rapping in school and in 2011 he wrote his first song. He did his studies in St. John the Evangelist High School at Marol and graduated from the RD National School.

Family’s Contribution:

Divine said in an interview “” I practically lived alone. Both my mother and brother have been working abroad since my father left. Every day I would write five hours at a time, and I would spend days trying to complete one verse, which I can do in minutes.”
And he also said that at the begging his own family didn’t assist him. They are happy, now that they noticed it via my eyes.
Who is best among Divine, Naezy, Emiway Bantai, and MC Stan?
DIVINE:- He has grown a lot from “Yeh Mera Bombay Hai” to become a signed artist to Sony Music India, featuring in “Sacred Games” (Kaam 25). This guy’s story will also be a part of the upcoming film “Gully Boy”. He has made it big and he lyrically kills it every time. This dude talks about real shit and streets.
NAEZY:- Naezy was once my favorite, he was the highlight of the song that made Divine & Naezy popular (Meri Gully Mein). He was better than DIVINE; at that time, his other songs:- “Haq Hai”, “Asal Hustle”, “Aazad Hun Mein”, “Tehelka” all songs were very powerful with killing it both lyrically as well the flow was next-level; But it has been a long time he is off-from the scene; He is even dead on his social media, which has taken DIVINE far ahead of him.
Emiway Bantai:- To be honest, I hated this guy; till #Sadak came. I loved his songs but he was not a pure Hip Hop Artist till then; after that what he has done is exceptionally amazing! The best thing is Raftaar, called him a person who copies Russ. He actually does not; He has made new-school hip hop rise in India. Videography can be inspired but truly he is very independent.
