Sulthan is yet another commercial action movie which follows the same rules of an typical action movie. The story is quite predictable, But the movie is all about kaarthi. He is completely the show’s stealer in this movie.

Sulthan Movie Review & Ratings

Now let’s get down to the detailed review of the movie.

The Movies begins with a flashback in a village, These scenes are shot beautifully and the audience can expect an excellent action movie right from the very beginning itself. The intro scene of Kaarthi as Sulthan is absolutely mass and the title Jai Sulthan is absolutely wonderful. Kaarthi is in a rugged looks and his character design absolutely suits him.

Then we move on to the village, Kaarthi and his father have conflicts between them regarding the leadership of the village, As Kaarthi is the sulthan now, He has take over as the leader of his father’s gang, henchmen and he has to vow to make their lives better and he should also erase the rowdy tag from their names.

Then Kaarthi thinks of an another alternative and he wishes them to transform into farmer. But for every good work, There are always problems. What are the problems faced by Kaarthi? How does he manage to overcome all these problems? That is the remaining plot of the movie.

Performances of the actors

Kaarthi has once again proven to the audience that he is an versatile actor and he can do any type of roles in any movies. He proves that he is one of the best actors in the industry and he handles the character with such a ease that he is an absolute treat to watch him on screen. There are two different shades in his character and we can easily say that Kaarthi has done wonderful work again with this performance.

The lead actress Rashmika Mandanna has done well in her debut movie. Even though she doesn’t get much screen presence in the movie. But whatever she has got, She has given her best. The chemistry between the actors is quite good and Rashmika Mandanna has done good work in her first movie.

The other roles are played by Yogi Babu and Sendrayan who do their own work of making people laugh, But that doesn’t work much in this movie. But the actor Ramachandra Raju who has played the antagonist in this movie has wonderful work in the movies. Just like in his previous KGF, This guy shows that he can act in any type of role.

Director’s Work

The Interval bang is absolutely bang on, The director Bakkiyaraj Kannana may look like that he has lost the way in the movie. But no, The writing in the movie is absolutely good. The director brings an interesting concept in the movie. The Henchmen under Kaarthi are shown with a good heart and they want to change.

Instead of being ruthless and rather aggressive, These guys have shown that all henchmen are not the same. This is where the director has shown his creativity, He wants the audience to show sympathy to these people. That is quite an unique concept isn’t it.

The screenplay could have been better, The scenes lag in the second lag.  The story is very much predictable, But what makes this movie a stand out from other action movies are the emotions in the movie are wonderfully shown by the director.

Music Director’s Magic Didn’t Work Well

The Music is quite good in bits and parts, The songs work well. Especially the title song Jai Sulthan is absolutely mass. That is the best song of the movie, The movie is good till the interval bang but the pace of the show falls down in second half. The runtime of 157minutes can make people feel a bit dizzy in the second half.

The actions scenes in the movie are quite excellent, BGM work handled by Yuvan Shankar Raja has done wonderful work to add more spice to the action scenes. They are full of energy and we are quite sure that the audience will definitely love these action scenes. The cinematography can be complimented, The work is handled by Sathyan Sooryan. The editing could have been much better in the second half.

Plus points Of the Movie

The main plus point of the movie is the lead actor Kaarthi. He has yet again proven that why he is an wonderful and versatile actor. His performance in the movie is one of the best in his career. Rashmika Mandanna should be appreciated as well, Even though its her debut movie in the Kollywood Industry. He justified her role wonderfully, The other supporting actors like Napoleon, Lal and others have done their work as per the story.

The another point is the unique way of storytelling and the emotional scenes in the movie are too good. Nobody expects some goons to turn into farmers. As mentioned above, The Movie is filled with action scenes and they have been choreographed wonderfully. Director has just done wonderful work in bringing the mass elements into the movie.

Minus Points Of the Movie

The Minus Points of the movie are the roles of the villains. The director didn’t use them properly. We all know that KGF Ram and he has proved that he can be a wonderful villain in the KGF movie but that is lacking in this movie. The whole movie is focused on the hero itself and frankly speaking the villains are shown as if their puppets.

The movie’s depth could have been even better because no one has ever seen goons turning into farmers. That’s where the depth should have been added.

Technical Aspects

The direction should be appreciated, Director Bakkiyaraj Kannan brings a unique way of a routine story. The Music composed by Vivek Mervin are good, The title song is very good. Apart from that the songs are average. The BGM is one and the same in all the scenes, There is nothing new in the BGM.

Kudos to the cinematographer who has done wonderful in capturing the beauty of village and action scenes wonderfully on the camera. Editing should have been better, As the movie is very long. People may tend to get bored in between the scenes.

Rating Of The Movie

Our Rating for the movie is 3/5 because of the excellent action scenes and wonderful unique way of telling the routine story, and for the performance of Kaarthi and Rashmika Mandanna. There could have been more depth into the movie, only that is missing from the movie otherwise Sulthaan is an wonderful movie to watch.

The Movie will release on the OTT platform soon. The tamil rights are brought by Hotstar, and the telugu rights are brought by Aha App. The Movie will be telecasted soon on the television as well and the rights are brought by Star Maa Channel.

Final Words

Overall Sulthan movie is a one time watchable movie in theatres, The Movie could have been way better with such a powerful characterization of the lead actor Kaarthi. The movie could have been made even more crispier and massy for the audience.

The unique concept of making the henchmen as the farmers is quite commendable and we have to appreciate the director for that. With such a storyline and excellent characterization.

The Movie had more potential to bring mass elements and the story could have been said in a better way. If you love mass movies with some wonderfully choreographed action scenes then this movie is definitely worth to be watched in theatres this weekend.
