Good Wrestling Movie
6 July 2016 | by ankitbbdSee all my reviews

Story-Sultan Ali Khan (Salman Khan)is a small town wrestler in Haryana who faces problems in his professional and personal life.

Salman Khan is perfect in his role.Its a good sign that Salman is choosing nice scripts now and focusing more on his roles.Anushka Sharma and Randeep Hooda were also good.Anushka has been given a very important role in this movie and she has performed it maturely.Ali Abbas Zafar,who is director of the movie,has done a good job.Background score is good.This movie may be biggest hit of Salman Khan.

Story is simple but screenplay is intriguing.Wrestling scenes are well directed and performed.There is a perfect mixture of emotions,humor and action in the movie.Editing could have been better.

As expected from Salman Khan,movie is family entertainer.Salman Khan fans will surely enjoy this movie.

Overall I give it 8/10.
