Another Eid..!! And another release from Sallu bhai..!! He promised to give blockbusters on every Eid and this time its Sulta, the action oriented family film. Lets see how this Eid release was to Salman.
Sultan Ali Khan (Salman Khan), falls in love with Aarfa (Anushka Sharma). Aarfa is a wrestler and aims to win Olympic gold for the country. She rejects Sultan’s love as want to focus on her dream. Thus Sultan also learns wrestling. He takes help from Aarfa’s father and promises to win the state championship. After a weak start, Sultan trains himself to become the top by marrying Aarfa and to be the best in wrestling. At this point he loses happiness of his life. After many years Sultan is approached by Aakash (Amit Sadh), who wants him to participate into the martial arts tournament. Sultan gets himself into proper shape with help of a new trainer (Randeep Hooda) and how he decides to win back his lost life and glory forms the rest.
The director’s urge to make his characters break into a jig every now and then slows down the film but his narrative is engaging to the core. Though the film is pretty long, the emotions and humor quotient in the film will succeed in keeping you on the edge of your seat. The movie should have been trimmed down by ten to fifteen minutes, especially in the middle part of the film. Salman Khan carries the whole superstar image but justifies it with his character in the film. Anushka Sharma is the real underdog of this film. Her romantic track with Salman is cute and enjoyable. Amit Sadh and Salman’s friend lends good support. Randeep Hooda in special appearance is exceptionally brilliant.
The film is shot by Artur Zurawski and he captures the glory and grandeur of the sport only in the context of the protagonist’s emotions. Music by Vishal Shekhar is peppy and Julius’s BGM’s are good. Sultan is a Salman Khan film made solely for his fans. It has everything to please its target audience. Go and enjoy it with family and friends..!! 🙂
