When Karthi's Attempt At Becoming KGF's Rockybhai Failed!
Directed by Remo fame Bakiyaraj Kannan, Sulthan is an action-packed commercial film that reminds you of multiple other films that fall under the same genre. The underlying intent of the story might be novel but the narrative's strategy to exploit stereotypes makes it a tiring watch.(more)

Karthi's film suffers from confused messaging with a dash of masala

Sulthan is a solidly written, immensely satisfying masala movie
The writing keeps hooked despite the story's arcs being familiar. Every sub-plot helps to take the narrative forward. Take the romantic track between Sulthan and Rukmani (Rashmika Mandanna, who makes a charming debut). In addition to lightening the mood and acting as a relief between the heavier sce...(more)

Karthi's action drama exceeds expectations
The film's high production values and strong emotional beats makes it an engrossing watch. Director Bakkiyaraj Kannan's solidity expands on the belief that men are naturally good.

Karthi lights up this mostly fun entertainer
Despite this, the film is a roaring entertainer. Much of the credit goes to an impeccably in form Karthi. He brings together the right amount of comedy, emotional and mass moments. Mansoor Bhai (Lal), Sethupathi�s second-in-command and Sulthan have an endearing relationship. Lal and Karthi have grea...(more)

Karthi headlines a highly predictable but fun action drama
Bakkiyaraj Kannan's Sulthan is what you get when you take popular selling points from a few highly successful and celebrated commercial films and package it in a way that you aren�t disappointed even when most of what you watch unfold on the screen feels very familiar.(more)
