Review by Baradwaj Rangan
As with Sunjay Dutt, I get the feeling that real-life troubles have had a part to play in the actor’s performances. Salman is a graver presence on screen. He projects maturity, even melancholy. He’s terrific in a scene where he appraises his out-of-shape physique and breaks down. I certainly did not anticipate the day I’d be talking about this actor’s acting. It’s a real conundrum. The worse he behaves off-screen, the better his films seem to get.

 I must say I rather enjoyed Sultan, which has been directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. I enjoyed it the way I enjoyed Bajrangi Bhaijaan. I like how these films – and only Salman Khan seems to be making them – set out on a path we now call “old-fashioned storytelling” and, along the way, find a few new things to do, show, say.

Other critics on Salman Khan's performance -

But make no mistake, the film really serves as a showcase for its leading man’s incredible screen presence, and his surprisingly mature performance in a role that requires much heavy-lifting…literally. - Rajeev Masand

Salman Khan lives the role of Sultan. He is outstanding as the lover boy, the wrestler, the loving husband and the brooding man. He is also brilliant as the man who strikes back. There is so much innocence on his face that he makes the character of Sultan endearing right from the word ‘go’. Not once does he get out of character. Indeed, a performance which could fetch him awards. - Komal Nahta

Salman packs in substantial heft around a predictable pattern of results. It’s a role that alternates between physical power play and unguarded sentimentality. By underplaying his vigour, narcissism or even political leanings (Bharat Mata Ki Jai) around an already bloated setup, Salman gives Sultan more dimensions than he actually possesses. - Sukanya Verma

It is a full-bodied, fully-earned performance, and Salman Khan aces it. - Shubhra Gupta

Salman Khan puts up a performance like never before - Rohit Vats

Salman Khan definitely worked hard on attaining that body and he needs to be lauded for it. At 50, watching him wrestle, dance, romance and emote with such ease in Sultan will be delight for his fans. The stark change that his character goes through is ably portrayed by him. He is definitely a watcher in this film! - Surabhi Redkar

Salman is not Salman, but Sultan, in this film. And that's a rare feat. Think Shah Rukh in 'Chak De!'. He is controlled in his acting, but plays the charming Romeo when he needs to, before transforming into a stoic man on a mission. He's an actor and not a star in this one. - Aastha Atray Banan

So Proud of this Film. In my books it is higher than Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

This movie contains a scene in which my jaw dropped to the ground but my chest got 56"inches.

Here AAZ is talking about that scene..

before the shooting of this movie began ... he called this movie the most difficult of his career....
and after this movie has released....its considered his best performance till date....

what he did with this movie.... for preparation...took only 6 months...

..if aamir khan was in his place...he would have taken 3,4 years.... while srk wouldnt' even have tried this thing...out of scare...

but ... this movie has damaged his body permanently .... after this movie... he's started to age more quickly.... his weight has increased and not coming down...he's started to look old ... and tired... all the time....

this is a lasting movie

the one movie which showed me that Sallu can actually act if he tries really hard.

and one of the the best music albums. Tuk Tuk and Sachi Muchi are underrated.
