Sultan Film Director: Bakkiraj Kannan
Sultan Film Rating: 4 stars
A motherless child, Sultan (played by Karthi) is raised by a group of hardened criminals. He loves these 100 men as brothers, but despises their taste for violence. After the death of his father, the responsibility of taking care of these people falls on the Sultan’s shoulders. That’s when he decides to replace them and teaches them to live as civilized people. This is a Herlian act, but the loyalty and love they have towards these men gives Sultan a chance to fight.
The film’s high production value and strong emotional beats make it an entertaining watch.
Sultan of Bakkiraj Kannan is a huge improvement on his debut film Remo. The romantic comedy with Sivakarthikeyan in 2016 followed a man’s attempts to seduce the girl of his dreams. The hero was ready to go to any length so that the girl fell in love with him. She even dresses like a nurse to achieve her goal. The way the hero justified his twisted deception in the name of love, I had a problem. In other words, I had a problem with Bakkiaraj’s writing that glorified an act that lacked decency and courage.
From Remo to Sultan, it is a giant leap for Bakkiraj. The director has removed any of his writing and attempts to rationalize every action of his protagonist. Instead, he puts his hero in a difficult situation, forcing him to make a choice. This creates a lot of dramatic tension and helps us warm up the hero who goes through a lot of trouble to do the right thing, which will allow him to sleep peacefully at night.
