Toofaan: 5 Reason to Watch It!




5  Things To Look Forward To In Toofaan

By Subhash  K Jha

  1.  Farhan Akhtar  as  the  boxer Aziz Ali, a. k a Ajju Bhai surrenders completely  to the role. Initially his  body language is  that  of  a street-smart tapori. Then as he  reveals his pugilistic  impulses  the body language  is  more measured  more indrawn. This is  definitely  the  best performance  by an Indian actor  as  a boxer  comparable with  R Madhavan in  Sala Khadoos.
  2. All eyes are on the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra-Farhan Akhtar pair. Their last  collaboration Bhaag  Milkha  Bhaag  was also  a sports drama. It  broke  records  in  its genre. Will  Toofan whip up  a storm  at  the  boxoffice? We will  never know, as  it’s  premiering on the digital platform.
  3. Farhan Akhtar was last seen in Shonali Bose’s  The Sky Is Pink, as a father trying to come to terms  with his daughter’s impending death. The  character  was as far removed  from Toofaanmovie  as cinematically  possible. While Farhan’s  character in The Sky Is Pink suffered  from urban restraint here  as the rustic boxer he  get a  chance to let himself go. The emotions are  never pent-up here. He  vomits  it  all out.
  4. Mrunal Thakur’s  as  the boxer-hero’s  Significant  Other will surprise you. She has  an identity beyond being the hero’s romantic interest. She is  a professional and she supports her man, but doesn’t fawn over him. Nor sit at the  dining table waiting  for him to come  home. In Rakeysh Mehra’s films the  women don’t have much footage . But they leave  a lasting impact.
  5. The  boxing sequences  do not fake  it, they  do not use  special effects to show fake blood  spraying across  the screen in slow-mo. We can see Farhan really taking the  blow. The  pain is  real. ‘Wince’  beaten   twice shy.

Trailer Review 

The trailer of Rakeysh OmPrakash Mehra’s  long-awaited  Movie (oh,the  agony  of  riding the pandemic!)   offers  no surprises. And that’s not a bad thing. Sports films about underdogs  overcoming all odds to emerge  the  chosen children  of the gods, provide a certain vicarious  thrills to the audience.

If HE  can do it, why can’t I?

The trailer attempts  the  triumph-of-spirit,  teacher  and  the taugh,   the treacherous and the taut route  with tremendous  style and brio. Farhan Akhtar  seems to have worked  overtime over his body. The pugilistic  look is impressive. When  we first meet  the boxer Aziz Ali  a ban  from boxing for five years has been revoked. He is reluctant  to  return to the  ring. But the one who wears his ring convinces him to  give it  his best shot again. Does that ring a bell?
