The makers of Sultan have released the trailer of the film yesterday. The film features Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. The trailer has crossed 2 million views on Youtube and has also earned 67k likes.
The story is weaved around the rise, fall and rise of Sultan. Sultan (Salman Khan) starts off with a smashing career in wrestling and even wins at the Olympics, until he has to suffer an emotional crisis. Soon, the story shifts into him leaving the sport and then his resurrection to the top. There are also Randeep Hooda and Amit Sadh and the later is seen as a coach who trains Sultan.
As we predicted Sultan looks like a complete Bollywood entertainer which will have something for each section of the audience. There is humour, drama, fun, action, romance, emotions and music. The makers are not claiming that the film has a pitch perfect story.
It is one of Salman Khan's most challenging roles and has nailed it. Salman's most impressive scene is racing along with a steam engine and will ensure many whistles in the cinema. Anushka also shines in the role of wrestler and her pair with Salman looks fresh. A song in the background Upar Allah, neeche dharti, beech mein tera junoon, re Sultan, can become a rage in the coming days.
There is a buzz that film's story looks familiar to Rocky series. Also there are not any major twists in the trailer though we hope there will be some in the film. Haryanvi accent of both the actors looks okay and could have been better. There is also nothing new in the wrestling sequences which we have already witnessed in the teaser.
The film has received positive response from people and trade pundits. The biggest USP of the trailer is that it has universal appeal. Salman's heroism in wrestling sequence and music will appeal to masses big time. While the emotional story and his journey will be liked by classes.
But above everything, film has Salman Khan and if the music clicks then on Eid, all opening records will be in danger.
3.5/5Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
