• Staggeringly engaging, remarkably rugged and unexpectedly romantic, Sultan is every bit the comprehensive blockbuster it promised to be. Watching the accomplished storytelling and the deft characterisations in Sultan, it is hard to believe that this work comes from the director of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Gunday. Quite a dizzying climb!

  • Raman Raghav 2.0 is a cleverly crafted and compelling film.

  • The ending could have been far better. It’s a bit comical to see some of our central characters sitting out and having a nice tea picnic while something so significant is happening.

    Still, the film is mostly gripping, sensational and involving. Veerappan’s story with his spectacular rise and fall was a big one. The film does it justice.

  • Director Tony D’Souza chooses to tell the story over different timelines, but the flitting isn’t as smooth as it should have been. The film moves on from the match-fixing allegations to the case being fought in court. There is an attempt to showcase the grey shades of the central character, but the film majorly cops-out in the end.

  • The film’s tells the story in a straightforward, simple manner. The execution is not sharp and technically impressive. The acting is superb by the veterans, but shaky by the younger crowd. Still, the film is worth a watch for the extraordinary story. A story that actually encompasses the scope of human kindness. And the fact that the film is inspired by true events makes it that much special!

  • Cinematographer Binod Pradhan swoops in to save the day, capturing Kerala in all its splendor. And then there is the martial-arts infused action. These are the only two things worthwhile in the movie.

  • For the outstanding story, interesting storytelling style, and incredibly authentic performances, this one is a must-watch!

  • It is to Shah Rukh Khan’s credit for taking on a fairly risky subject, and allowing such self-deprecating material (he is known for his comment on performing at weddings) in the script. But this is no ordinary Shah Rukh Khan film. Here the superstar is visibly thrilled to tackle this complex role (roles, actually) and relishes them with passion. He’s wonderful as the superstar who faces trouble from the most unexpected source, and is even better as the fan who is so obsessed, he cannot differentiate between right and wrong.

  • If you’ve seen films like the exquisite Dangerous Liaisons and the more mainstream Cruel Intentions, you’ll find a striking resemblance with our film here. All these films delve in the love and lust sports played by people, often lacking love in their lives.

  • …a film can work only if the viewer is emotionally invested in the character and their journey. That’s the reason Rocky Handsome doesn’t work neither as an emotional drama nor an action flick. This could’ve been a far better film.
