As far as we are all concerned that Farhan Akhtar’s Toofan and “Hindi सनीमा” are all of us, I am now looking for specific films about the exact lives of these characters. As the content around us became so fast-paced, I’m suddenly missing out on a time when the film had a pretty good time telling the story.
Saying Toofan isn’t fun and games, it’s very tiring, but mostly it’s an experience I’m highlighting. It comes with mistakes, but what caught my attention were the things that are happening outside Farhan Akhtar’s Aziz Ali AKA Toofan boxing ring.
Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra (ROM) has always been a master at realizing emotions and Toofan stands out in that regard. Be it Farhan-Mrunal Thakur (who plays the role of Ananya, Aziz’s love interest) or Mrunal-Paresh Rawal (the role of the coach of Aziza and Anana’s father Nana Prabhu), ROM has the power to develop a bond with his characters. if they live in a “template” in their films.
Farhan Akhtar’s efforts are physically and mentally visible (* SPOILER *: The action taken in the scene where he rubbed Mrunal’s mental number is heartbreaking). She has the charm of someone like Abhay Deol but has the advantage of being physically fit depending on the role.
Mrunal is also VERY GOOD! We need to talk about how Ananya was so lively rather than how Farhan achieved his Physical Transformation. Ananya’s character understands ROM about emotions in her films. It follows the classic Trope to build a deep bond with the character and ends up giving the audience a shock.
He could be questioned for his religious thoughts that had the character of Paresh (SPOILER: and the climax twist between him and Darshan could be seen coming a thousand miles away), despite being an excellent coach. His hatred of Muslims was found to be a trick. Writers should work on it.
* SPOILER * Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra was the only angle we should have felt at an angle when Aziz, Nana’s characters, lost loved ones in the catastrophe. Nana was losing her wife in an assassination attempt and Aziz Ali was also losing his wife, but in a tragedy that was not associated with a particular religion. The ROM should set this angle to strengthen the core between Aziz and Nana in the second half.
Overall, the love of the film lies in its handling of Toofan within Rakeysh Omprakash Mehrak Aziz Ali. Watching it in 163 minutes didn’t bother me much to check how much film there is still and the theater misses me even more.
