Sultan -Review

SULTHAN ... An ordinary raise and fall champion's story ...
                 A rapid mix of Patriotism, child sentiment from 'bajrangi bhaijaan' and Wife sentiment from 'Dabangg' wrapped with regular pattern screenplay for a sports movie results, 'Sulthan'.

This 170 min Commercial sports drama, marks the making and fall of a wrestler 'Sulthan' (Salman) with some 'pulse less' and formality scenes till interval. Though Post interval scenes gives you some hope, Bad song placements and predictable climax pulls the expectation down to the 'Median line', results in an average product.

 WHAT DOESN'T WORK...

- Tough 'Sulthan' is a fictional character, learning wrestling within 6 weeks is little too dramatic.

- 'Baby ko bass' in first half and 'Jag ghoomeya' in second half tests our patience. Floor movement try by salman may be an exception :-) ..

- First half scenes looks very formal, Eg, Salman lifting a tractor in front of franchise owner, Hero becoming wrestler for heroin, Salman proposes  Anushka in the wrestling ring ect...

- Non-linier narration in fight scenes are good. but after semi finals collapse, even a child can predict the following sequences.

-Though songs are average, placement was totally bad. Technical analysis of each opponent fighter in second half could have added some more spice to the script.

                     Camera work in action sequences are too good. Phase of the movie is little dragging, editing could have been better. BGM was fine. Action sequences are brilliant, Wrestle trainer needs special mention. Anushka and salman did a splendid job, Casting is more effective. Ali Abbas Zafar could have made the first half little better and crispier, Second half is average.

OVERALL : An Usual template sports movie, Wrapped with commercial ingredients.

RATING : 2.5 / 5 ...
