✔     Introduction

Hello Dear Friends, I hope you are doing fine and having a good time on bitlanders.  Today I have come up with my another new blog with the title of "Indian Movie Review - Sultan".  In this blog, I shall review a Bollywood Hit movie "Sultan".  This movie is about a Wrestler who has a passion and will power to show his talent to the entire world and his emotions to his lover at the same time.  This movie was released in 2016 and was a great commercially successful film.  This film has the distinction to be one of the highest earning movies in the history of Bollywood Film Industry.  In this film, the main character is of Salman Khan who has been serving the Bollywood Film Industry for more than 30 years now and has been one of the most successful actors in the Industry.  He plays the role of an imaginary superstar Wrestler Sultan Ali Khan from India who gained worldwide popularity and was an amicable athlete in his time.  This film has been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and Produced by Aditya Chopra and both the personalities need no introduction in the Indian Cinema Industry as they have been serving the industry for a long time and have given a lot of Hits to the industry.

The movie "Sultan" was released on July 6, 2016 on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr under the distribution banner of Yash Raj Films.  Some details of cast of this movie is as under:



✤    Salman Khan as Sultan Ali Khan

✤    Anushka Sharma as Aarfa Ali Khan 

✤    Randeep Hooda as Fateh Singh

✤    Anant Vidhaat Sharma as Govind

✤    Marko Zaror as Marcus

✤    Tyron Woodley as himself

✤    Meiyang Chang as himself

✤    Kumud Mishra as Barkat Hussain

The director’s biggest success lies in taming Salman’s overpowering persona. Zafar further breaks the film into three distinct acts, and the actor excels in each of them. From playing a done-and-dusted homegrown wrestler to a wonder-boy of freestyle fighting, you see Salman put up a performance like never before.

Sultan takes a cue from Tom Hardy’s Warrior, but that’s about it. The pot-bellied, middle-aged wrestler is mostly his own creation. Anant Sharma’s fantastic act as Sultan’s sidekick Govind is also notice-worthy.

✔     My Movie Review - Conclusion




I liked this film "Sultan" very much because this is full of entertainment.  The film shows heights of passion and love.  One common man becomes what his lover wants him to be and then regains his strengths to prove his mettle.  The film gives a very positive message to its viewers that if you work hard to achieve your goals, then no force on earth can stop you.  The Director and Producer have done a marvelous job and they made sure to get the best out of Salman Khan's ability to create a masterpiece.  The film is lengthy i.e. about 3 hours duration but provides a very good alternate to your time and money.  The film has more than eight musical songs and all managed to become Hit in the Indian Music Industry.  On the whole, all the team members have worked pretty well.  The filming sequence, direction, visual effects and acting in the movie were awesome and that is the reason why this movie became a very popular film.  The film had a budgeted cost of more than US Dollars 21 Million and after its release, so far it has managed to earn nearly US Dollars 65 Million.  I shall rate this movie 8 out of 10 stars and recommend to all Bollywood film lovers.
