Stupendous Sultan will make you Laugh,Dance,Cry with Goose Bumps
6 July 2016 | by (Delhi) – See all my reviews

The movie is a fictional sports drama but the the way it has been executed it seems real. Salman Khan and Eid has became synonymous in India. This movie is not only highly recommended for the Salman fans rather all those who love to watch brilliant mainstream cinema. Salman Anushka looks great as couple and at the same time very intense and cute. Music is add on to the movie. Specially the Rise Of Sultan is amazing track. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is always a lucky charm for Salman Khan. Vishal Shekhar first got the opportunity to compose for Salman Khan Movie. Movie will make you laugh,cry and give you goose bumps. You will never feel the movie flat because its all about ups and ups. Salman Khan is like old wine, getting better and better with the time. So, its a Super Entertaining YRF's ,Salman Khan's Film. So, must watch it. i give 9/10. I cut one marks because i love to watch Salman Khan in even bigger and greater role on next Eid.
