Rakesh Omprakash Mehra is the one who made the head-turners like Rang De Basanti and Bhaag Mika Bhaag that kept the film industry in attendance. But many times he made the thumbs down films as well. He came up with 'Toofaan' this time and hit home entertainment through Amazon Prime video.

Torfaen is the story of a street fighter (Farhan Akhtar) turned National Boxing Champion. His love interest Ananya (Mrunal Sharma) is a doctor and her father Nana Prabhu (Paresh Rawal) is the boxing coach who is an ardent Hindu and anti-Muslim in thought process for personal reasons. Well, the boxer protagonist is Aziz, a Muslim.

With this kind of pitch, everybody can predict how the narration goes about. So the real talent of the storyteller lies in proving the audience's prediction wrong and also dwells in engaging them with more gripping narration till the end. But that didn't happen here.

Everything goes as predicted. The film sounds either cliched or does not hold enough punch because the audience has already watched Dangal and kept that as a benchmark for this kind of film, unknowingly. So any film narrative that resembles the graph of that film or is inferior to it cannot hold interest.
