The Ali Abbas Zafar-directed film has kept Salman fans waiting with a lot of curiosity, all these days
Has Salman Khan managed to recreate the same magic ?
Here’s my review :
Well ! According to me, after Bhajrangi bhaijaan, Sultan is the second film, which not only showcases the superstardom of the actor, but also manages to churn out a plot and tell a story that will connect with audience across age groups and people from all walks of life.
Sultan as a story not only tells a tale about an underdog wrestler,
it deals with the references to the human spirit and strong will that has an universal appeal.
Salman plays Sultan Singh a down and out wrestler whose personal life is on the rocks after his wife Aarfa (Anushka Sharma) walks out on him.
How Sultan decides to give wrestling and his life a second chance is what the film is all about.
Amit Sadh plays the businessman Akash Oberoi who invests in Sultan to save his MMA inspired fighting tournament from sinking down.
While Randeep Hooda plays Sultan’s coach. Both these characters take the story ahead respectively.
Ali Abbas Zafar’s Sultan is a total paisa vasool and will be appreciated by the audience.
The film has the perfect ingredients of sportsmanship, drama, romance,motivation.. along with the bhai factor of Salman Khan.
The film’s emotional scenes will 100% make you cry coz I ended up crying like a baby.
The Haryanvi-accented funny dialogues scenes of both Salman and Anushka are hilarious and has the perfect blend of chemistry.
The Minus points :
Sultan has a very lengthy running time of 170 minutes, The narrative is paced leisurely, with too many unwanted songs. The number of songs slow down the speed of the film.
The music for Sultan is composed by Vishal–Shekhar while the lyrics are penned by Irshad Kamil. The soundtrack album is undoubtedly one of the best this year. especially my fav ” Baby ko base pasand hai’
Salman Khan gives out a very honest performance and delivers one of his best performance till date. No Bhai -Giri here, only Sultan giri.
Anushka Sharma is so natural as Afraa and she remains the soul of the film.
My elder bro Amit Sadh plays the character Akaash Oberoi with a lot of conviction and confidence,he is the next big thing in bollywood.
Special thanks to my beautiful friend Monika Pathania Verma for an amazing performance ( love watching her on screen) and to my talented friendDhaval Barbhaya for a good special appearance and for taking a tigh slap from Sallu Bhai lolzz
At the end of the day, Sultan remains a Salman Khan film.
Probably, his best so far. You can never ignore him or his films. A MUST WATCH
