Sultan the life of a fictional Haryana based wrestler, who became Olympic and the world champion released this Ramzan weekend with much expectation from the fans and critics. The film opens in Delhi were the future of Pro take down league a mixed martial arts tournament. Aakash oberoi(AmitSadh) is man behind this league which is dying and is forced to close it by its Sponsors and investors. He finnaly convinces them for one last chance to retrieve it. He is then advised by his father to bring a Indian athlete into this franchise and give the local audience a champion to cheer. He asks him to bring Sultan Ali Khan (Salman Khan), who once was a famous wrestler who won the olypmic and the world championship for the country. Aakash goes to the hometown of Sultan, who now is a middle aged, pot-bellied clerk working for the state water dept. Askash tries to get Sultan with money, except Sultan refuses to get back into the ring. Aakash then comes to know about the story of Sultan, how he became a wrestler, his love, his reason for leaving the career behind. Will Sultan get back into ring to fight? Will he mend his broken life? That forms the rest of the story.
Salman Khan’s hardwork can be seen in every scene as a young wrestler and as a middle aged fighter who his determined to fight his demons to win back what he lost in his life. Anushka as Aarfa dazzles on screen has Sultan’s wife and also as the female wrestler. Even though the underdog moments in the second half is the usual drama with but Salman makes it look good. With very high concoction of action and melodrama we rarely have a dull moment in these 170 mins. Saying that you still could have reduced the unwanted song and few scenes which move lazy in the second half. Watch Sultan just for Salman Khan and you won’t be Sorry. I give sultan 6/10
