Toofaan (2021) Movie Review: Bollywood Movie Worth Watching

A good hearted Parsi gym owner in the neighbourhood, introduces the legendary Muhammad Ali’s videos to Aziz. ‘Boxing Aur bhaigiri mein yahi farak hai. Boxing is a sport that needs technique, discipline and patience, not just strength,’ he clarifies.

    Recognising his potential and the expert training he deserves, Aziz is recommended to a widely respected boxing coach Nana Prabhu (Paresh Rawal). The Dadar veteran is wary of a Muslim guy from Dongri with notorious background but agrees to take him under his wing.

    He even bestows him with the title ‘Toofaan’ (unstoppable storm) but this near perfect coach-protege relationship takes an ugly turn when things get personal.Forbidden love, casual bigotry, communal harmony, making of a boxer and redemption of a disgraced athlete…

    Toofaan tries to tread several paths at once. In doing so, the fictional tale loosely feels like a mishmash of several films you may have seen before… Ghulam, Sultan, Mukkabaaz.

    Given the fact that Toofaan sees Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra reuniting with his solid Bhaag Milkha Bhaag team — Farhan Akhtar and Shankar Ehsaan-Loy, one expects nothing less than fireworks. What you get is a run of the mill story told in an over-simplistic way.

    A few empty punches, a few solid blows, lot of evading the opponent and eventually tiring out the vibe, Toofaan is an odd mix of succumbing to and destroying the stereotypes. Love lies at the heart of the story but boxing drives the narrative. The juggling doesn’t seem organic and feels a lot like one interrupting the other.

    Mehra's film looks back into India's sports history, focusing on several previous boxers in the Hindi film industry. It is notable that Mehra pays close attention to detail, and tries to paint a vivid picture of life in the world of Indian boxing through a dozen characters.

    What is Toofaan about?

    The story of Toofaan revolves around some elite Indian athletes and the regime under which they work. It is set in a run-down India ruled by corrupt politicians who are out to destroy the sport. Also, the movie also has an implication on drug abuse.

    Review of Toofaan

    Toofaan Review: Toofaan was expected to be a blockbuster, with it being directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra who has always made cinema that is loved by all sections of audiences. 

    Also with the star-cast of the film consisting of veteran actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar it was certainly a strong team that needed a movie to flop and fortunately Toofaan failed to deliver. 

    The film is based on India's Gold medal win at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and reportedly is said to be a sports drama which was released across 4500 screens in India, almost equal to what his last film, Mukkabaaz had achieved. 

    Toofaan opened to a poor 3.45 crore (33 million) at the box office, which included paid previews on the day of its release.

    He decides to make the most of the resources he has been blessed with and realize his true potential” All the Trailer Looks Interesting The Film is shot in the beautiful locations of Goa and Manali. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's choice of music for Toofaan is very special and impressive. 

    Not only his composition for the film but also for his previous projects in Bollywood. They have a strong soul, very simple and effective. Each song is accompanied with pure performance. Action Toofaan has a strong presence of the actors in action sequences.

    Final Verdict

    Toofaan is a 2021 Indian Hindi-English language sports drama film directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and starring Farhan Akhtar national level boxer and Diljit Dosanjh at his best. 

    The film is a biopic of former Indian boxing athlete Vijender Singh’s journey in the combat ring. It is also a testimony of how boxing and sports help people to fight through their hard times. The film also introduces you to the real life of world champion boxer Vijender.

    My Thoughts on Toofaan

    Who doesn’t love a good sporting drama? That is probably why I really enjoyed Toofaan. Toofaan came to theatres on July 31st, 2017. The film was one of the biggest Bollywood releases of the year and opened to an overwhelmingly positive response at the box office. 

    The film revolves around a boxer from the Donpur village named Ganesh Singh (Farhan Akhtar). He is a real patriot. He comes from a poor family and works as a porter to make ends meet for his family. He never fails to give the opponent a tough time in the ring. It is his only source of income. 

    The film also portrays his love for his village and the love he has for his village folk. Toofaan Review: Star Performance Farhan Akhtar as Ganesh Singh is brilliant. He manages to capture the essence of a boxer who loves his family.



    Finally, a Pakistani actor has been able to prove his acting skills on the big screen. With his upcoming film Toofaan, the film is expected to also prove the fact that Pakistani actors are very capable of holding top roles. 

    Moreover, the film is an ideal family entertainer which is also highly refreshing for the audience as it does not demand much from the viewer. But if we were expecting another heavyweight performance from Farhan Akhtar, then we are surely going to be disappointed.
