Karthi has a solid following in the Telugu states and that is the reason, all his films get a good release. The latest one to hit the screens today is Sulthan. Read on to see what Karthi has in store for us.
Sulthan’s(Karthi) father, Sethupathi(Napolean) is a big shot in his area. He is aided by Lal and 100 henchmen who are crazy goons. After a while, Sulthan falls in love with Rukmini(Rashmika) and becomes a farmer in her village. This leads to problems. If this was not enough, Sulthan’s father passes away and the 100 henchmen go crazy. Left with no choice, Sulthan decides to revive these 100 henchmen, help Rukumini and her issues in the village. How does he manage all of this is the story of Sulthan.
Sulthan has a larger-than-life premise and is perfect for the general audience to enjoy. Karthi leads from the front as Sulthan and gives what his fans expect. He is larger than life, fights superbly, and shares superb chemistry with Rashmika. In a way, you can say that he single-handedly carries the film on his shoulders.
The film has a good point about Karthi managing the henchmen. But things are made commercial as the track of farming, corporate heads taking over is brought. This makes the film disappointing and boring in many areas. Rashmika is super as the village belle and she brings joy to the fans.
But the other aspects dominate things. The production values are superb and special mention should go to the fights which are superb. The masses will love them.
Lag in narration
Dull second half
Sulthan is a film that is for the fans of Karthi. He leads from the front and sizzles with his screen presence. The action part is also good but the extra baggage that comes in because of the drama is bad. This part disappoints. This is a film that is made for the masses and single screens. Go in well prepared so that you won’t get disappointed as to what is thrown at you.
