Toofaan Movie Trailer: Farhan Akhtar Brings An Inspiring Story Of Grit And Will On Amazon Prime
Actors Farhan Akhtar and Mrunal Thakur starrer Toofaan is out with its trailer. Featuring a story of an underdog who becomes a famous boxer only to be cheating his profession and being kicked out of boxing. The trailer focuses on how Aziz Ali gets back to boxing after leaving the sports for years. Mrunal, who plays his partner, constantly motivates him to get up and become the man he used to be. Paresh and Mrunal called their film a ‘masterpiece’ by Rakeysh Mehra. They said that the film is largely about not giving up on anything in life.
Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra who helmed Bhaag Milkha Bhaag for Farhan in the past, Toofaan also features Paresh Rawal in an interesting role. He plays Farhan’s mentor in the story and someone who pushes him hard to treat boxing as his religion. Toofaan looks like an inspiring story of a man who decides to change his identity for the better and despite facing all the obstacles, ends up punching fate in its gut and emerges as the winner. The trailer of the film is full of heavy dialogues, emotions, and a lot of drama with Farhan’s acting skills taking the centre stage.
The trailer was released on Amazon Prime Video India, the platform where the film is releasing on July 16. During the virtual trailer launch of his film, Farhan highlighted the struggle he had to go through to look like a boxer on-screen. The actor said, “Toofaan is a true labour of love. No matter how physically strong one is, stepping into the shoes of a boxer is a whole new ball game. It took 8 to 9 months of rigorous training for me to get into the skin character and it made me realize how physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding the sport actually is. I am thoroughly excited to see all our hard work on the screen and I am glad we are going to be able to take the movie to audiences across 240 countries and territories with Amazon Prime Video.”
Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra echoed the sentiment, saying, “I don’t want to give away the plot because the joy of discovery should always be with the audience. However, Toofan is a film that works on different levels. There is sports, love drama. There is the Guru-Sishya Parampara, there is the bond between a father and a daughter, and a father and his son. There are many different layers which together form this film.” Toofan also stars Supriya Pathak Kapur, Hussain Dalal, Dr. Mohan Agashe, Darshan Kumaar and Vijay Raaz in pivotal roles. It will premier on July 16 on Amazon Prime Video.
