Praising the controlled performance of Ranveer Singh as Murad and a sparkling performance by Alia Bhatt as Safeena, the film critic applauded the script written by Zoya Akhtar with Reema Kagti and whistle-worthy dialogues by Vijay Maurya. She added that Gully Boy also revolves around those that have been missing from the mainstream Bollywood films, mainly the minorities and those who are far removed from the privileges of urban wealthy India.
Bhavna Agarwal in her review for PinkVilla gave the film 4 stars and noted that along with powerful performances delivered by Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, Gully Boy rises a par above with a well-written script that is a social commentary.

Writing for TimesNow, Film critic Gaurang Chauhan has given the film 4 stars.
