What's more frustrating is that 2 men who have made films like Rang De Basanti and Dil Chahta Hai, and who have collaborated to make Bhaag Milkha Bhaag - have got together once again to make this utterly useless film. I am really surprised how this left the desk, let alone get made. I mean, I have no issues with the execution, everything is nice. But it all seems like a copy of a copy of a copy. Even the songs seems lazily put together, without an iota of originality. This boxing bout is about as fresh as a Septuagenarian's bum. 2+ hours of your life wasted watching this non-starter. And it's really baffling why would the crew put so much effort into making this lazy, tired, hollow film. Arrey, there aren't even any comedy scenes or good characters to talk about. Nothing stands out.
I think Farhan one day thought he should get fitter and didn't really want to pay for the transformation. So he simply asked Rakeysh to come up with a script in 2 minutes, sold it to the first streaming house bakra they could find, got loads of money for it and used the money to get beefed up. That's the only logical explanation. To actually get paid to get fitter.
Anyway, this Toofan should actually be called "Thu-Fan". Coz it's like when you spit on a fan and the spit comes right back at you. This film is aiming below the belt, but it lands no punches. It's more of a knock-off than a knock-out. Don't waste your time on this really.
