While Karthi’s latest hit Sultan will appear on Disney Plus Hotstar from 2 May. Sultan Review, Manoj Kumar R of Indianexpress.com wrote, “From Remo to Sultan, it is a huge 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. “
