Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5 | 4/10
Mrunal Thakur is saddled with a character whose transition from being assertively proactive to becoming merely reactive is riddled with inconsistencies. Casting Paresh Rawal as a mean boxing coach isn't such a great idea but the actor does his best ... Full Review

अगर ये फिल्म सिर्फ़ बॉक्सिंग पर केंद्रित होती शायद ज्यादा अच्छी होती। लेकिन निर्देशक की आकांक्षा बड़ी थी। सलमान खान की `सुल्तान’ को मात देने की। दिक्कत यही से शुरू हो गई। ... Full Review

India TV: 4/5 | 8/10
Toofaan is testimony to the fact that clever actor-director duos can do wonders. It's a long two hours 40 minutes film, but there's hardly a part where you'd like to skip a part. The fast pace makes up for the length of the film ... Full Review

WIONews: - | 4/10
At the risk of sounding hyper-analytical, we are going to say that ‘Toofaan’ is a hotchpotch of ‘Panga’, ‘Dangal’, Mehra’s own marvelous ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and every other sports drama-cum-rags-to-riches-cum-road-to-redemption story you can think of ... Full Review
