Raihan Rafi's ‘Toofan’ shatters showtime records at multiplexes, cinemas

The much-hyped Raihan Rafi-directed and Shakib Khan starrer ‘Toofan’ is successfully running all over the country as moviegoers are rejoicing a long-anticipated masala film of the Dhallywood megastar after a long time, which led to a record-breaking scenario for the theatres across the country.

The action-thriller film is breaking the record number of shows for any Bengali film in Star Cineplex, Blockbuster Cinemas, and also in single-screen theatres all over the country, according to multiple sources.
A total of five movies have been released this Eid-ul-Azha. Alongside "Toofan,"  the other films are "Agantuk,"  "Dark World," "Moyurakkhi," and "Revenge."

“At present, ‘Toofan’ is being screened in 129 cinema halls across the country, and we got the report that every hall is full. Star Cineplex started ‘Toofan’ screening with 12 shows on Eid day, which was later increased to 22 shows, then gradually increased, and as of today, Star Cineplex has been running 55 shows per day, which will be increased to 58 shows on Friday,” Shahriar Shakil, producer of the film under Alpha-i Studios, told the media on Thursday, UNB reports.

Similarly, the other major multiplex chain in the city, Blockbuster Cinemas, screened 15 shows on Thursday and it will screen 17 shows on Friday, according to both Shakil and the website of the multiplex. Shakil, while briefing the media about the response surrounding the film, also said that the other multiplexes and single screens across the country are reporting overwhelming sales of the film.

He added, "To determine a movie's precise amount of sales following its theatrical release, we have to undergo a rigorous process. As of Thursday, we learned from the Star Cineplex authorities that ‘Toofan’ has made around 1 crore 20 lakh taka in gross sales since Eid day till now, which is a record for any local or international release in Star Cineplex’s history.”

“We obviously had bigger expectations for ‘Toofan’ as megastar Shakib Khan delivered his best performance in this film; however, the attendance of the audiences and sales reports coming from different multiplexes made us spellbound. ‘Toofan’ has surpassed all of our expectations and calculations,” according to the film's director, Raihan Rafi.

Starring Shakib Khan as the lead alongside West Bengal sensation Mimi Chakraborty, acclaimed Bangladeshi actor Chanchal Chowdhury, and Masuma Rahman Nabila, among others, "Toofan" is produced by Alpha-i Studios, Bangladeshi OTT giant Chorki, and Indian film production and distribution company Shree Venkatesh Films (SVF).

The film will have its international release on June 28.
