“Sultan” Review: The Movie is Setting New Trade Records!

This is a story of a once-decorated wrestler, whose glory days come to a screeching halt when personal tragedy strips his will to fight. The movie was directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, produced by Aditya Chopra under Yash Raj Films banner and the film stars Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma. This big budget movie is already close enough to recover its cost, with a box office business of Rs. 68 crores in first 2 days.

The plot of the movie starts with Sultan (Salman Khan) as an aimless cable installer in his small Haryana town north of Delhi, he first develops an appetite to fight when he falls hard for the beautiful, English-educated Aarfa (Anushka Sharma). A wrestler herself, with Olympic dreams, Aarfa won’t consider marrying him until he shows some direction in life.

But as he proves his worth, gets the girl, and wins a world title, an unexpected twist of fate knocks out life as he knows it, and he retires from the ring—until years later, when, presented with the chance to fight again, he sees an opportunity to regain what he lost, if only he can get back in shape.

The actors take up the Haryanvi accent in a brilliant way to run the show throughout the movie. Meanwhile, the movie’s themes are surface-deep: Perseverance, forgiveness, hard work and humility lie at its heart and in its message.

Zafar treats us to some striking rural and urban panoramas while relaying that message, as Sultan gears up along mustard fields of Haryana in the first half, and in front of Delhi’s iconic India Gate in the second.

Even critics are giving Salman star ratings for Sultan.
