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..!! 🙂

PK (HINDI)

PK

Starring: Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh, Sanjay Dutt, Saurabh Shukla and many more
Editing : Rajkumar Hirani
Music : Shantanu Moitra
Cinematography: CK Muraleedharan
Written by: Abhijat Joshi, Rajkumar Hirani
Directed by: Rajkumar Hirani

Much had been debated about the film’s plot. Is PK an astronaut, is he an alien or is he a con artist? What is PK movie all about? Much till the screening of the film, the plot had not been revealed, so this may come as a surprise to you, but PK is not an out and out comedy film like how it has been portrayed till date.

Abhijat Joshi and Rajkumar Hirani pen a unique take on God and its faith layered by love, life and humanity. A mysterious pan chewing PK (Aamir Khan) is in search of God and his remote which he lost once he enters as alien. A complete stranger PK is weird but curiously loving. PK in his search for God meets Bhairav Singh (Sanjay Dutt) and Jaggu aka jagat Janani (Anushka Sharma) who comes to Delhi from Belgium after losing her love (Sushant). Bhairav helps him to understand the language, Jaggu helps him to understand love. PK challenges the stereotype belief of faith and while finding his answers finds love and much more.

Firstly, a big round of applause for Aamir, Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra for making this story and giving us a grand family entertainer with some food for thought! PK will make you ask the pressing question, How does a big hero do this. The star has proven his mettle yet again and I couldn’t have pictured anybody but him as the weird, quirky yet endearing PK! Hirani and his co-writer Abhijat Joshi craft clever scenes rich in irony, like one in which PK arrives at a church service with a Pooja bag, or one in which he attempts to enter a mosque bearing wine. It’s to the writers’ credit that they successfully mine laughs out of scenarios that might otherwise appear prickly.

PK creates another career triumph for Aamir Khan for its major awards turn. Exceptional in the Bhojpuri drawl with affable sweetness, the actor draws the viewer close to his curious character immediately, and manages to keep the audience amused throughout. Excelling and surpassing himself in his most challenging role till date Aamir comic timings get more edge and sharp this time. Anushka Sharma too has essayed her charismatic but cute journalist role well, the short hair looks really good on her. Her love chemistry with Sushant and friendly chemistry with Aamir has been balanced really well. Sanjay Dutt is wonderfully droll, Sushant Singh Rajput is very likeable indeed and Saurabh Shukla, playing the antagonistic godman, is great at being a pompous god-invoking gasbag. Lookout for another star at the end as a sweet cameo.

Muraleedharan’s cinematography is marvelously beautiful like postcards. Rajkumar Hirani editing is sharp. Music gels well with the film. PK is no satire — it’s a bit too toothless for that — but it is a rollicking mainstream entertainer with ambition to evoke some introspection, one with compelling moments and some genuine surprises. It sticks faithfully to Hirani’s quirky film making, and yet there is no question that it’s a courageous film. Packed with sharp dialogue and genuinely funny moments that offset the lack of subtlety, it is easily one of the year’s better films. A sequel is on the demand now. Dont miss this film which may answer to your many questions..!! 🙂
