So what is Farhan Akthar’s star game ‘Toofaan’ about? Read on to know more …
Under forced circumstances, an orphaned boy born from the streets of Dongri grows up to be a local goon. His life changes when he meets a bright and compassionate young woman named Ananya who guides him to take the right path. With love and guidance, he finds his calling in sports and takes the journey into becoming a world-class boxer.
This is an inspiring story. Even the poor and marginalized, beaten by living conditions, can become the heroes of the nation by giving up the other part of life and taking the right path.
Toofaan is located in Bombay. The city of Bombay is like the third character of the film. Bombay is a Megapolis and one of the major cities in India. It is a true cosmopolitan city and a melting pot of different cultures and religions. Mumbai runs on the spirit of Mumbaikars. This ‘spirit’ is actually Mumbai’s proudest possession, which we also see in our films through our characters.
Toofaan will also be the first film to simultaneously premiere on Amazon Prime Video in Hindi and English from July 16, 2021.
