The film is about the journey of Gully Boy. The acting performance of the film was highly praised. The subject was also a little different and connected to pop culture. The film promoted hip-hop culture in India and introduced rap culture. It was the most awaited movie of the year and was also seen drastically by people in every cinema halls.
So, these were the highest grossing films of the year, which help the Hindi film industry to gather the necessary resources and courage to make more films. There was a lot of expectations from some films but they turned water on it. One such film I remembered from Pani is Ashutosh Gowariker Directed ‘Panipat’. Karan Johar’s ‘Kalank’ was also very popular. But after the release, these discussions could not be converted from the prescription to be purchased to watch the film. As a result, the film became a box office disaster.
