Tamil hero Karthi also has a good following in Tollywood. His films are well received by the Telugu audience. Karthi's last film 'Khaidi' was dubbed in Telugu and was a great success. Now he has come to make a fuss at the Tollywood box office with the movie 'Sulthan'. This is Karthi's latest film after super hits like 'Khaidi' and 'Donga'. Rashmika Mandanna is the heroine. Bakkiyaraj Kannan is the director.
Vikram Sulthan (Karthi) is a robotic engineer in a company in Mumbai. His father Sethupathi (Napoleon) was a don. He has 100 bullies called Kauravas. Due to an unforeseen event, he has to take responsibility for the 100 bullies as he considers his brothers. With this, the Sulthan went with his 100 brothers to the village of Velagapudi in Amravati. There he falls in love with Rukhmini (Rashmika Mandanna). But the Sulthan finds out that there is a big problem in the village where Rukmini lives and solves it. What is the problem with that village? Why did the Sulthan take charge of 100 people? What did Sulthan do with her Kauravas? That's the rest of the story.
Karthi, who always chooses experimental stories, chose a different storyline this time as well. Impresses the audience with body language that is appropriate for the character. Impressed in the role of Sulthan. Karthi looked stylish and energetic on-screen. Performed wonderfully in fight scenes. Kannada beauty Rashmika Mandanna impressed as a village girl. She starred in the Full Dee Glamorized role. We can see Rashmika in a new role. Napoleon showed his experience in the role of the hero's father. 'KGF' fame ram performance in villain role is good. Also, another villain Nawab Shah did a good job. Yogi Babu and others acted according to the range of their roles.
In the Mahabharata, what if Lord Krishna was on the side of the Kauravas and not on the side of the Pandavas? Director Bakkiyaraj Kannan directed the movie 'Sulthan' with that point. The film tells the story of a younger brother with his hundred brothers. However, the concept is new but the director failed to show it on the screen. It seems that the director has shown the routine backdrop on the screen with the elements that today's generation wants.
The director, who led the entire first half as a full comedy, showed the original story in the second half. However, the length of the film is a bit too much for the audience to feel embarrassed. Despite being a star villain like 'KGF' fame Ram, the inability to shape their character is negative. Logic is also missed in some action sequences. But, the love scenes between Karthi and Rashmika came out wonderfully. The chemistry between the two of them on-screen came out well. Vivek - Mervyn songs, Yuvan Shankar Raja background music is good. Editor Reuben would love to cut most of the scenes as crisp as possible. The cinematography and production values are up to the standard of the film.
