We all know movies like these movies aren't made to do well with critics. They are made for a fun holiday watch, and this one delivers it perfect. It's a nice wrestling movie with some comic moments in between, a strong romance story which is believable and isn't clichéd much and the drama seems real.
The story revolves around Haryana's wrestler Sultan, his professional and personal life. The movie is about determination, confidence, dreams.
The movie is well acted by Salman Khan. He shows the intensity of a determined fighter on his face. Randeep was amazing as always. Anushka acted good but her role as a wrestler was a little less believable.
The action is good, cinematography looks real. The background score is nice. The depiction of rural Haryana, the language, the wrestling culture are all shown accurately. The only bad thing about the movie is that some scenes were cheesy, although it don't affect the movie much.
It is definitely worth a watch. You can go with family or friends and will enjoy it thoroughly.
