A good film.....for the kids.
11 June 2006 | by liakot_aSee all my reviews

I grew up watching Toofan. It was my favourite Child hood movie. I absolutely loved it too bits and have watched it 100s of time. Now that I'm older and maturer I have seen Toofan recently and realised, what did i Love. The movie does have its light moments, but it has no Art. I'm sure any Kid will enjoy this movie, If you see it first time as an adult then, maybe it wont appeal. Amitabh Bachcan in a double role gives us a Jolly Fun performance. Amrita Singh is fairly good. Meenakshi is looking very sexy in this movie. The Villain is very cartoonic and will entertain the younger audience. It does have a few good songs, my favourite is Don't worry be happy. Overall Toofan does have a few good scenes, not the Best Amitabh Movie. With a Great Director, this is for the Children
