Salman Khan has come back to the epicenter of Bollywood with his latest movie Sultan. One of the most anticipated movies of this year, Sultan is already breaking records and making great inroads. But how is the movie? Is it going to be value for money and time? Find out here in Sultan Review. The movie is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and has been produced under Yash Raj Films Banner. The movie features Salman Khan as Sultan and Anushka Sharma as Aarfa. The movie was released on July 6 on Eid.
Sultan is a movie of a wrestler who fights for his respect, dream and existence. Both have played wrestlers in the movie. The plot of the movie revolves around a freestyle wrestling championship where an aged wrestler gets featured and won the tournament. However, the movie takes you back to the life of Sultan. Sultan was a wrestler and so was Aarfa. They both wanted to play for the nation and wanted to win the medals. Sultan and Aarfa fell in love and they get married to each other. However, even after winning many fights, the fate turns down Sultan once and his life goes on to the darkness. The movie shows how Sultan comes back to the center stage and wins the championship sidelining all the troubles, problems, and fear. The movie shows all the shades of the life of Sultan and the hues of different times.
The movie is script based rather than star based and the director has shown that in the movie time and again. However, there was no match to the star power of Salman Khan. He drove the movie all alone with his natural and typical acting. Nothing was different however from his end. Anushka Sharma was as usual brilliant with her performance and so was Randeep Hooda. The script was catchy and different but it was very much predictable. The typical Bollywood Hero can do everything and win kind of factor is present in this movie too. However, there are certain things that are really praiseworthy. The wrestling sequences and the narration of the story are effective. Music was already a hit for the movie and the cinematography has also been very efficient. Salman Khan and his typical steps have been entertaining. Even though the movie has earned huge popularity for his adverse marketing and promotions but there is nothing wow in this movie. It is a good movie but not something exceptional of course.
