Director Ali Abbas Zafar's Bollywood movie "Sultan," starring superstar Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma and Randeep Hooda, has received positive reviews from audience around the world.
"Sultan" is a sports-drama film with a good dose of romance, music and emotional quotient. Director Ali Abbas Zafar has written the story, while producer Aditya Chopra has penned the screenplay for the movie, which deals with the story of heart, passion and grit in Sultan Ali Khan, a wrestler from Haryana. It is about how Sultan brings to life his story of love and determination against all odds.
Sultan Ali Khan (Salman Khan) is a wrestler from a small town in Haryana and he has problems in his professional and personal lives. How he fights against all odds to achieve global fame, winning bouts at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, the 2011 FILA Wrestling World Championships in Istanbul and the 2012 London Olympics, forms the crux of the story.

The audience say "Sultan" has an interesting story that offers a brilliant message to the public. Aditya Chopra has created an arresting screenplay and he has embedded some commercial ingredients that make the film a good entertainer. The director has a good grip on the narration, which keeps viewers engaged throughout the movie.
As a wrestler, Salman Khan has delivered sterling performance and his hard work is clearly visible. In fact, "Sultan" is his show. Anushka Sharma has also put in a lot of effort and has done justice to her role. The chemistry between the two is the highlight of the movie. The performances of Randeep Hooda, Suzi Khan, Amit Sadh and Tyron Woodley are also assets of the film, say the viewers.
"Sultan" has been produced with a whopping budget by Aditya Chopra under his banner Yash Raj Films. The movie has superb production elements. Vishal-Shekhar's music and background score, Artur Zurawski's cinematography, choreography of wrestling scenes and punch dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, add the audience.

Sreedhar Pillai @sri50
#Sultan 3.5/5. Adrenaline pumping & motivational sports film. @BeingSalmanKhan extraordinary knockout performance makes it a winner. #AliAbbasZafar in his 3rd film as director has proved he has the stuff, dialogues by #AdityaChopra r really good.Well packaged. romantic story set against wrestling background with a emotional touch. Loved the romance between #Salman & #Anushka. Haryanvi English that @BeingSalmanKhan speaks is a rocker & dance movements in the song Jag Ghoomeya terrific. Downside- length ,170 minutes, some shots are repetitive, for a sports film it has to cut the flab.On the whole Paisa Vasool

#Sultan Ist half is engaging, lots of funny moments, action ,& emotional angle. 2nd half is very predictable but screenplay is tight. #Sultan some may or may not like @BeingSalmanKhan haryanvi accent but he acts good. @AnushkaSharma is superb . Direction is good #Sultan over all this movie is way better then #PRDP but nowhere close to BB . This movie is better then kick and ETT . Watch it 3.25/5
#Sultan has excellent dialogues.great performance by salman and anushka.must watch.very meaningful.full marks.

#Sultan | The director has worked on the backdrop. Anushka Sharma's training is paying off. It's a long film though. #Sultan | What's a Bollywood film without cliches. This one is also not devoid of them. Salman Khan's superstardom is at work though. From Haryana to London to Delhi, #Sultan travels places. Randeep Hooda's powerful presence ups the thrill quotient. #Sultan | Aditya Chopra's screenplay is the best thing about this film. Freestyle fight choreography is another good thing.
