Movie Review: Toofan Is Not a Great Film, Despite Farhan Akhtar’s Exceptional Performance as Aziz Ali

Key Summary

  • Toofan’s rants are frequently stupid and predictable.
  • The primary premise is weakened by a love tale between Ali and Ananya, a father-daughter relationship, numerous tear-jerkers, and various songs. The boxing arena begins to seem murky.
  • Movies like Chak De India and Dhangal did well in this category because they were focused, whereas Toofan veers off into the irrelevant.
  • Mehra, on the other hand, has put together a fantastic cast.
  • First as the Dongri’ Dada,’ then as a mellowed lover, husband, and father, Akhtar is outstanding.

Toofan is Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s second outing in the sports arena. Farhan Akhtar plays a gangster who specializes in extortion and loan collection. Tooofan clutters the canvas with too many issues, and the narrative is predictable. Often, Toofan veers towards the unnecessary while using the emotional card to keep the audience’s attention. First and foremost, Akhtar is exceptional as the Dongri ‘Dada’ and later as a mellowed lover, husband, and father. Thakur is a pleasant girl with an infectious smile and joyful radiance.

With his latest Amazon Prime Toofan, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra enters the sports scene for the second time. While Farhan Akhtar starred as the legendary Olympic runner in his 2013 film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, the director’s Toofan takes to the boxing ring. Nana Prabhu (Paresh Rawal), the master teacher, tells Aziz Ali (a man with tremendous energy and extraordinary speed but abysmally poor technique) that he must treat the ring as his home early scene.

With his latest Amazon Prime Toofan, Rakesh Omprakash Mehra enters the sports world for the second time. While Farhan Akhtar starred as the legendary Olympic runner in his 2013 film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, the director’s Toofan takes to the boxing ring. Nana Prabhu (Paresh Rawal), the master teacher, tells Aziz Ali (a man with tremendous energy and extraordinary speed but abysmally poor technique) that he must treat the ring as his home early scene.

Ali (Akhtar) is a criminal from the Mumbai suburb of Dongri who specializes in extortion and loan collection, often using violent means, but believes that boxing might help him become a more powerful thug in an unusual turn events. He travels to Prabhu, who is initially hesitant to coach Ali because he is a Dongri Muslim. However, the coach eventually gives in.

Prabhu’s hatred for the group derives from killing his young wife in a terrorist strike, which left his little daughter Ananya unharmed. Despite his close drinking companion Vinay (Mohan Agashe) emphasizing time and time again that this cannot be true, he stubbornly assumes that all Muslims are terrorists.

However, Prabhu’s mind has become so hardened that he refuses to order Chinese food from a Muslim restaurant!

Years later, Ananya (Mrunal Thakur), a doctor working in a charity hospital for the poor and needy, meets Ali when he arrives with a head injury. She kicks him out after learning that he was involved in a brawl.

Toofan is frequently inane and formulaic, with Ali winning boxing bout after boxing fight and eventually capturing Ananya’s sight and heart. Although a second completely unexpected tragedy appears unnecessary and purports to have been produced solely to harden Prabhu’s adamancy, it does not require a Sherlock Holmes to predict where the plot would end up.

Unfortunately, Toofan’s canvas is cluttered with too many themes, and the narrative, written by Anjum Rajabali and Vijay Maurya and lasting roughly 160 minutes, appears to be a drag. Editing has been abandoned, with some scenes running on indefinitely. The primary premise is weakened by a love tale between Ali and Ananya, a father-daughter relationship, numerous tear-jerkers, and various songs. The boxing arena begins to seem murky.

This is where films like Chak De India and Dhangal excelled because they were focused, whereas Toofan veers away from the essential and frequently relies on the emotional card to keep us engaged.

Mehra, on the other hand, has put together a fantastic cast. First as the Dongri’ Dada,’ then as a mellowed lover, husband, and father, Akhtar is outstanding. His journey of self-discovery is enthralling. Rawal and Agashe play their parts with great conviction, while Thakur is lovely as a cheerful girl spreading her infectious grin and festive glow.

Aside from that, Toofan lacks the ferocity that one would anticipate from a piece about boxing.
