During the Eid week Salman Khan starrer 'Sultan' box office collections in Pakistan are widely expected to do extremely well and that this Ali Abbas Zafar film will become the most profitable movie – it might even break last year's record set by hit home-production 'Jawani Phir Nahi Aani'. According to film exhibitor Nadeem Mandviwala all the shows of 'Sultan' on the first five days have already been sold out. Cinepax, the largest cinema chain in Pakistan, says 80 per cent of the total 350 shows, for 'Sultan', scheduled across five days in its network, have been sold out. (Yash Raj Films photo)
Sultan review by Shubhra Gupta – ***: “And win it he does. ‘Sultan’ has him breaking free from Bhai-giri bondage by getting his character to crack and bleed. His down-and-out wrestler has foibles, is fallible, is human. Sultan Ali Khan has faults, and is punished for it. Because of which Sultan scores, and delivers a solid entertainer with heft.” And “Director Ali Abbas Zafar surprises us by keeping the slack moments mostly at bay in this 170-minutes enterprise. Some lines are distinctly populist, but spry enough to make you crack up: Hooda has a lovely one about ‘asli Jats’.” (Yash Raj Films photo)
Sultan review: Salman Khan’s Sultan is out and his massive fan base is in frenzy. Indubitably, Bhai has a knack of galvanising his support base and send them marching into the theatres as if by remote control – Salman of course, would like to use the word ‘love’ instead of the more mechanical sounding moniker. However, that is one aspect of Salman Khan and his moviedom success. The other world is that of the critics – how they interpreted it and what kind of a rating they gave it in their movie reviews. We take a few top ones and present them to you without muscling, sexing them up or in any way interfering with the critics train of thought. So from the Indian Express’ Shubhra Gupta to DNA’s Sarita A Tanwar, check them all out: (Yash Raj Films photo)
Sultan review by Namrata Joshi in The Hindu: “Sultan (or for that matter any other Bhai film) has to be seen as independently of his crazy fans and their riotous reactions at Galaxy as of his infamous “rape” remarks. So let me stick my neck out and say that the Haryanvi and the Haryana in the film are cringingly irritating. Just a month back there was the much reviled Laal Rang, starring Hooda that got the rough and rustic lingo and earthy humour spot on. Here the accent itself becomes a joke. A juvenile, inane one at that. Saying “yo sai (it is)”, sory for sorry and test for taste doesn’t make things authentically Haryanvi but wildly witty for the fans it seems.” (Yash Raj Films photo)
'Sultan' is being released in around 75 screens in 55 cinemas, a number slightly lower than that of 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' that released on 80 screens. However, it is not likely to affect the business by a large percentage.
