Thoofan is a break-neck-paced, adrenaline-pumping, pulse-pounding paisa-vasool entertainer. The movie boasts of brilliant performances and rich technical values. It is good treat for Mega fans this weekend.

Do not compare this movie with the original classic(Amitabh’s Zanjeer). They are two very different movies. Charan has given a power packed performance and the film has its moments. A crisp runtime also helps matters. A better script and a higher dose of entertainment would have really helped matters. Still, the movie ends up as a decent cop drama.


Ram Charan Tej who also debuted with this movie in Bollywood with `Zanjeer', the Hindi remake of the old Amitabh Bachchan starrer, bares his chest, flexes his muscles, shows his anger all through, and in one of the songs declares himself to be the hero of Mumbai. Time will tell.

Ram Charan has given wonderful performance here. There is no comparison to the Zanjeer here. Definitely Toofan is a worthy watch for this weekend.

Toofan is a disastrous washout film which Ramcharan shouldn’t have selected. I think, the same would be applied to Bollywood version ‘Zanjeer’ because Apoorva Lakhia hasn’t spared even one scene in the movie from his disgusting treatment. If Mega Fans have any questions, just blame it on Apoorva.

Toofan is all body and no soul. Even with the powerhouse of talents that it boasts of, it finds a way to dig its own pit. A major letdown!
