Sultan seems to get a positive response from the critics and also from the audience.
"Performances are top notch with both Anushka and Salman complimenting each other and the jugalbandi that leads up to their romance is highly endearing. Ali has made sure the wrestling looks real and it doesn't feel too choreographed."
"The director's eye for detail has gone in favour of the film, but Salman's accent might not hit the bull's eye with some. The melodious tunes and fast pace make Sultan an engaging watch, but the film has overlooked some crucial angles."
"So far the Haryanvi dialect is being used perfectly in the film by all the actors. #Sultan"
"Journey of #Sultan begins. Salman Khan at his best. Godly physique, firm determination and killer training: thats how champions are made. Salman #Sultan Khan enters with a bang. On-screen or off-screen, crowds go crazy. Whistles, cheers everywhere."
"I really can't understand, why did makers promoted Sultan as a biography when it's a fiction n has nothing to do with reality?
It's interval n what a beautiful and brilliant love story Sultan! It's going to be sure shot super hit."
The story and dialogues of Sultan are good. Both Salman and Anushka have given best performances. Salman’s role as a wrestler is commendable and he definitely has put his best foot forward.
