The most anticipated film of the year: Salman Khan's Eid release, Yash Raj films and the film has been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. But what starts out to be a promising romance between sportspersons (both are wrestlers) soon dives headlong into a horribly predictable tale badly told. How you will hanker for Chak De!

Sultan Review RatingShubhra Gupta (

Sultan is an entertainer with heft. Salman Khan aces it with a full-bodied, fully-earned performance in the movie and is ably supported by rest of the cast.  Read Full Review

Sultan Review RatingSurabhi Redkar (Koimoi)

Sultan is not a sports drama! It is a sheer Salman Khan drama.  Read Full Review

Sultan Review RatingRohit Vats (

Sultan has all the right ingredients of a 'masala' potboiler, and whistling and sobbing are likely to go hand-in-hand here. Don't go looking for a twist ending, though. We all know what to expect from such a film, but it's still a lot of fun to see the underdog win.  Read Full Review

Sultan Review RatingSukanya Verma (rediff)

Director Ali Abbas Zafar relies solely on Salman Khan's drawing power and offers nothing novel in terms of storytelling.  Read Full Review

A good , well narrated and directed sports movie. Anushka too has been given a very fair amount of screen space. First time it felt like Salman has put in a lot of efforts to act this out really well.   Sultan User Rating
