6 July 2016 | by aadityapooniaSee all my reviews

Sultan is a superb family entertainer. Sultan" is a sports-drama film with a good dose of romance, music and emotional quotient. Director Ali Abbas Zafar has written the story, while producer Aditya Chopra has penned the screenplay for the movie, which deals with the story of heart, passion and grit in Sultan Ali Khan wrestler from Haryana. It is about how Sultan brings to life his story of love and determination against all odds. It has got superb plot and story-line and salman delivers a powerful performance. Everyone has done a great job. "Sultan" has been produced with a whopping budget by Aditya Chopra under his banner Yash Raj Films. The movie has superb production elements. Vishal-Shekhar's music and background score, Artur Zurawski's cinematography, choreography of wrestling scenes and punch dialogues are the attractions on the technical front, add the audience. OVERALL ITS A MUST WATCH for EVERYONE.
