Sultan Reviews

  • 60 Hindustan Times | Rohit Vats

    Sultan has all the right ingredients of a ‘masala’ potboiler, and whistling and sobbing are likely to go hand-in-hand here. Don’t go looking for a twist ending, though. We all know what to expect from such a film, but it’s still a lot of fun to see the underdog win.


  • 60 Hindustan Times | Anupama Chopra

    Sultan is an overwrought, overblown, over-stretched sports saga. When it ended, I had moist eyes and a big grin on my face. In wrestling terms, it’s an over-sized Salman slam. I’ ll warn you that at 2 hours and 50 minutes, Sultan is much too long. The music by Vishal and Shekhar is lilting but there are too many song breaks. But I left the film satiated, like I had eaten too much atarich, many-flavoured feast.

    SULTAN comes across as a paisa vasool, seeti-maar unadulterated entertainer which will be loved by classes and masses alike. At the box office, the lack of a credible opposition, perfect release timing [festival period] combined with an extended 5-day weekend will ensure that the film will break records and emerge as the biggest hit of the year so far. The film has got 'B-L-O-C-K-B-U-S-T-E-R' written all over it. Go for it!

    With Sultan, Salman Khan has dropped another Eid blockbuster for his fans. This is the movie where Salman Khan finally breaks free from being Bhai and yet delivers a complete entertainer.


  • 50 Rediff | Sukanya Verma

    Sultan is a classic Salman Khan vehicle in the skin of a sports drama imagining itself to be more profound than it really is. Doesn’t mean it’s not engaging, a lot of it is but, despite the possibilities, writer-director Ali Abbas Zafar relies solely on its main star’s drawing power and offers nothing novel in terms of storytelling.
