Probably Salman's biggest ever. Possibly India's biggest ever!! That's #Sultan
6 July 2016 | by anantdwivediSee all my reviews

Movie and Business Rating: 5 star***** IT IS HUGE HUGE HUGE! That's ‪#‎Sultan‬. Unstoppable tsunami from ‪#‎SalmanKhan‬ this Eid. Let the celebrations begin!!! :) :) Probably Salman's biggest ever. Possibly India's biggest ever!! That's #Sultan :) There is something about #SalmanKhan. Either you love him for his charm, screen presence or bold attitude or you hate him due to his controversial remarks or brush with law but you cannot deny the fact that he is one superstar whose stardom and films are not impacted at all(morning shows were ‪#‎housefull‬ at 8 AM everywhere for "Sultan" .. unbelievable.. isn't it ???) at the box office. Now coming to the performances, it is #SalmanKhan all the way. #SalmanKhan is #Sultan and #Sultan is #SalmanKhan :) I cannot imagine anyone else playing the character of "Sultan" and that is where ‪#‎Salman‬ proved his mettle. The actor deep dives into the character as if it was tailor-made for him and gives his best. ‪#‎AnushkaSharma‬ as Aarfa is equally competent and shines in her well- defined character :) ‪#‎AmitSadh‬ ( the guy from "‪#‎KaiPoChe‬") finally gets the opportunity to show his acting skills and the actor does well. Last but not the least, ‪#‎RandeepHooda‬ will blow your mind with impeccable performance. The actor who plays Anushka's father does a fine job as well. :) :) ‪#‎AliAbbasZafar‬'s direction is superb. He has kept the narrative style simple and extremely entertaining and engaging. Also, his direction caters as much to the classes as to masses, as much to the ladies as to men, as much to the old as to the young. ‪#‎Music‬ is a major plus point. ‪#‎Jag‬ Ghoomeya, ‪#‎BabyKoBassPasandHai‬', ‪#‎440Volt‬ and Title track are hit songs. ‪#‎SultanReview‬ #Sultan ‪#‎SultanBlockbuster‬ ‪#‎SultanAtCarnivalCinemas‬ Overall, The film has got 'B-L-O-C-K-B-U-S-T-E-R' written all over it. Go for it! :) :P
