Toofan looks like it will deliver on its promise of a high-octane sports drama, feels Moumita Bhattacharjee.
After aiming for the theatres for a while, Toofan will finally see an Amazon Prime Video release.
It's a film that should be watched on the big screen to experience its full potential as a sports drama.
Aziz Ali (Farhan Akhtar) is a local gangster, who breaks people and furniture.
He meets the love of his life, played by Mrunal Thakur, who inspires him to use his fighting talent in boxing.
Aziz meets a boxing coach Nana Prabhu (Paresh Rawal), who hesitantly decides to take Aziz under his wing.
Aziz the boxer sees a rise and one fine day, it all comes tumbling down, thanks to a five-year ban.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's direction has always been appreciated and here too, it looks promising.
Farhan, who did a swell job as Milkha Singh in Mehra's Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, look the boxer's part here. One can be sure of a super performance from him.
Mrunal's smile can lift anybody's failing resolve. She plays the driving force behind gangster Ali's journey to become boxer Ali.
Paresh Rawal is always a treat to watch and this film won't be an exception either.
Toofan looks like it will deliver on its promise of a high-octane sports drama of an underdog.
