Sultan


3.5/5

Cast : Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma, Randeep Hooda, others

Directed by : Ali Abbas Zafar

Produced by : Aditya Chopra

Music : Vishal-Shekhar

Release Date : July 6, 20



Well, technically, it is not Eid yet but Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is already out with the best Eid we could ever get. Yes, we are talking about \'Sultan\' here. We usually don\'t expect much from the script in a Salman Khan film but our expectations have risen tremendously since \'Bajrangi Bhaijaan\'. So not to delay, will let go into it...

Story :

Sultan (Salman Khan) is a native wrestler of Rewari district. He fells in love with Aarfa (Anushka Sharma) who is a state champion in wrestling and runs a school with her father who dreams of her to be a champion in wrestling. Sultan keeps on trying to impress Aarfa who gets annoyed and let him know her interest. She wishes to marry a guy who is also a wrestler in order to win her over. In Bollywood style, Sultan steals Aarfa’s heart and the couple soon tie the knot. Meanwhile, Sultan and Aarfa become world champions and their life seems to be a picture perfect fairly tale until one incident changes their lives forever. Amit Sadh runs a wrestling league and eventually becomes bankrupt due to lack of viewership. Soon after, the sponsors of his company pull their hands off. With nowhere to go, he seeks help from his father who then suggests him to meet Sultan. After meeting him, Sadh’s character makes him an offer which Sultan turns down. what happens when Sultan loses Aarfa? And when, many years and multiple kilos later, he faces a much deadlier fight is what to be watched on the big screen?

Performance :

\'Sultan\' is yet another such film where the actor completely steals the show. Salman proved that he can also create magic on the silver screen if given a story oriented film unlike his brainless comedies. The way he has pulled off a character of a wrestler is outstanding. His aggression in the second half definitely deserves a standing ovation. The dialect and accent of Haryana are the true winners. You will be amazed to know that, unlike the popular opinion, even Salman\'s accent is not bad at all. After seeing her performance in ‘Sutlan’, one thing that struck me that Anushka has a capability to be crowned as a versatile actress. One can say that the actress passed her ‘NH 10’ genres to this film. She made the character of Aarfa look real, raw and believable. Her role has the potential to overshadow the titular character but, all thanks to Salman\'s stardom. Even though in a special appearance, Randeep Hooda as an aggressive martial arts coach did a fabulous job. His arrogance suited him in his ferocious role. Amit Sadh got a noticeable screen space. Well, good for his drowning career. It takes a lot to leave a mark in a film like ‘Sultan’ which is an out and out Salman Khan film.

Technical Highlights :

Cinematography by Artur Zurawski is praise worthy as he has shot such beautiful locations in Rewari district. Music is not as good as Salman\'s earlier hits. Somehow, it succeeds to blend in as the story moves forward.

Movie Highlights :

Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma, Direction, Wrestling Matches

Drawbacks :

Slow Pace, Long Run Time, Dragging Second Half

Analysis :

Director Ail Abbas Zafar has finally added a feather of a well made film on his cap. His debut ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ went unnoticed at the box office and his second directorial ‘Gunday’ sank without a trace. But Ali’s ‘Sultan’ comes out as a champion. Though he had too much to do in just one film, the filmmaker managed to make a film that wins in every aspect. His narrative is engaging to the core. Though the film is pretty long, the emotions and humour quotient in the film will succeed in keeping you on the edge of your seat. Few dialogues where we see Salman expressing his liking for Shah Rukh Khan or Randeep Hooda calling Salman a true Jatt, are realistically humorous. The best part of the film is its easy flow. However, the drawback of the film is its slow pace. The film should have easily chopped off for about 15 minutes but it won’t bother you since ‘Sultan’ is entertaining till the last frame. Second half of the film is little dragged but picks up in the last half an hour. On the other hand, few portions in the film will remind you of Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Chak De India’, especially the last wrestling match and Salman’s misson behind it. With ‘Sultan’, one can easily say that Ali has made a mark for himself in the industry. Helming a film with huge star cast and appropriate narrative is commendable. ‘Sultan’ is the best feast on this Eid. The film is recommended not only to Salman Khan’s fans but also to the family audience who were awaiting a family drama high on emotions, just like YRF style.

Bottom Line :

B-L-O-C-K-B-U-S-T-E-R written all over !!
