‘Toofan’ is a sports action drama film. Farhan Akhtar is in the lead role and the story of the film revolves around his character Aziz Ali alias ‘Ajju Bhai’. Still a road impression hooligan. A big culprit is Sagarit. Recovers. Marzud does. However, Dr. His life changes overnight as he falls in love with Ananya.
Dr. Mrinal Thakur is in the role of Ananya in th film Toofan. Ananya is a sensible and determined girl who understands the difference between good and bad. He tells Aziz that he has to decide if he wants to be a real recovery brother or a respected boxer Aziz Ali.
A Parsi gym owner lives near Aziz’s house. Which shows him a video of legend boxer Mohammed Ali. He says, ‘This is the difference between boxing and bullying. Boxing is a sport that requires technique, discipline, patience, not just strength. Seeing Aziz’s ability, he is sent to boxing coach Nana Prabhu (Paresh Rawal).
Nana Prabhu lives in Dadar and he is a little wary of seeing a Muslim youth coming from the infamous area of Dongri. But they get ready to train Aziz in their wing.
The younger lord names Aziz Ali a ‘storm’. But there has also been sourness in the relationship between the guru and the disciple. The story progresses and for some personal reason the relationship between Aziz and the younger Lord deteriorates. The director of the film ‘Storm’ has a lot to say.
It is a story of love, bigotry, sectarian harmony, determination to be a boxer and liberation from the stigma of an athlete. The ‘storm’ is running on many roads at once. As you move forward with this fictional story you will often feel as if you have seen all this before, be it the film ‘Slave’, ‘Sultan’ or ‘Boxer’.
After ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, ‘Toofan’ has once again featured Rakesh Omprakash Mehra, Farhan Akhtar and Shankar-Ahesan-Loy. You expect a lot from this team as viewers after watching the next film but in ‘Storm’ you get a simple story and it is easily portrayed. However, the punch wound in the film will seem certain.
It leaves an impression in many places but in the end the film is tiring. ‘Storm’ is a strange combination of bowing to rituals and even destroying them. The film manages to entertain as well as inform. However, it often seems that one issue intersects the other.
Karisma Kapoor was scared by Sunil Shetty’s move on the set of the film, and she cried.
Ananya believes that you always have a choice. It is not easy to extricate yourself from the world you were born into. The hero of the film shows this curry and you move forward with him in this journey, hoping to master his inner struggle and boxing skills. However, the focus of the film’s story in the meantime is on a traditional love story, social tensions, parental resentment and boxing. The strongest aspect of the film is its realistic approach.
Then there are the dialogues between the coach and the disciple or the communal conflict. Oddly enough, however, all of these scenes are shortened and the film’s story continues to flow with emotion. Sometimes it seems that the story of the film wants to talk about issues like religious tolerance, empathy and prejudice but then it just goes beyond touching on these issues.
In the film ‘Gali Boy’, Ranveer Singh composed a rap song in the streets of Dharavi.
Farhan Akhtar also roams these streets but sabotages. Ranveer’s image became like that of a normal boy. While it is fun to see Farhan, who grew up in an urban area, bullying on screen. Farhan asks for some time in this work but eventually casts himself into the character. As far as physical transformation is concerned, we have seen Farhan’s sincerity and determination in ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’.
Paresh Rawal has done a great job in the film. He is in the role of a guru who ignores his disciple and misunderstands him. Paresh Rawal and Dr. Mohan Agashe has proved that, if there are good actors, even a simple script can be made better by performance.
Mrinal Thakur has also done justice to his role. It doesn’t look dramatic at all. The film also shows that no matter how much the character suffers, the difficult situation does not make the characters look hypocritical or merciful. Overall, the movie ‘Storm’ may not bring a hurricane but the clouds have the power to thunder.
