Actor Danish Husain commented on the post, “And what a performance it was! Jaw dropping!” A fan wrote, “It means a masterpiece is coming soon.” Another wrote, “You are a brilliant actor… lots of gems got hidden… for long… wish you good luck waiting for #galiguleiyan.” A fan also called him “Baap of all actors.” A fan also said, “Manoj sir khus jate ho kirdar mein (you immerse yourself in the character).”
Manoj had made the announcement about the film’s release on Monday. He tweeted, “I couldn’t have thought of a better day than today to share that our film Gali Gulieyan is releasing on an OTT, coming soon on Amazon Prime. One of the most challenging roles I have ever played.”
Directed and produced by Dipesh Jain, the film is about a man (Manoj Bajpayee) trapped within the walls and alleys of Old Delhi and his own mind, who attempts to break free to find a human connection. Titled In The Shadows in English, Gali Guleiyan premiered at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival in 2017 and was also screened at the MAMI Film Festival, Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles, Atlanta Film Festival, Cleveland International Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival.
The film went almost unnoticed during its release in theatres on September 7, 2018. It also stars Ranvir Shorey, Neeraj Kabi and Shahana Goswami in pivotal roles.
