Bollywood Aaina Business Verdict: Blockbuster


Sultan Khan is slightly immatured for his age and so while he is running a cable business, a love at first sight moment for him changes his life.After a chance meeting with Aarfa, Haryana’s famous female wrestler, Sultan falls for her and tries every trick in the book to woo her. He soon learns that she will only marry a wrestler who has competed beyond the state level and that becomes the motto of his life. Sultan trains himself to be worthy of her and to stand tall in his own eyes.With his physical as well as mental strength, Sultan goes on to create milestones and even wins at the Olympics. He even marries Aarfa but his toughest fight with life is yet to come.Will Sultan’s growing arrogance ruin his marriage with Aarfa? Witness the rise, fall and rise of Sultan!


Salman Khan definitely worked hard on attaining that body and he needs to be lauded for it. At 50, watching him wrestle, dance, romance and emote with such ease in Sultan will be delight for his fans. The stark change that his character goes through is ably portrayed by him. He is definitely a watcher in this film!Anushka Sharma gives a strong support to Sultan’s character in the film. Her performance is fairly good and surprisingly the chemistry with Salman too.Amit Sadh and Randeep Hooda have cameo roles in the film and both fit their roles quite seamlessly. We do wish there was a little more Randeep in the film!

Direction / Music / Lyrics /Editing / Camera

Director Ali Abbas Zafar should be all set to have his shining moment since Sultan will undoubtedly become a blockbuster. For Salman Khan fans, the director is offering everything they want.Capturing the spirit of Akhadas in smaller towns of India, Zafar has done a fine job with his lens. Like Maneesh Sharma, he too captures a good chunk the lifestyles of the tier two cities.Even as the script fails, Zafar relies on his lead star to carry the film on his shoulders. From his Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Gunday days, we have to say that the director has definitely come a far way.If only, he had made sure to keep the film a little crisper it would have been better. The second half drags and not all fights are captured well enough to keep you at the edge of the seat. Also, execution of the mixed martial arts tournament could have been done better.The music is hummable and certain tracks strike a chord.


Sultan is not a sports drama! It is a sheer Salman Khan drama. For its entertainment value and a cliched but watchable storyline, I am going with a 4.5/5 for the film.
