Bakkiyaraj Kannan directed and wrote an Indian Tamil language action film entitled Sulthan. The film premiered on April 2, 2021. An orphan, Vikram (Sulthan), is raised by a group of disciplinary criminals arranged by Sethupathi. He embraced these 100 men as brothers. However, he hated their taste for violence. After the death of his father, the duty to look after these people became the responsibility of Sulthan. That’s when he chose to change it and teach them to live as educated people. It was a huge responsibility, but the commitment and passion these people had towards it gave Sulthan a chance to fight.
Sulthan intends to keep his brothers safe from police agents, trying to get Chennai out of the fray.
He was sure he had just had the moment when Yogi Babu’s Bob Aka Babu made up lies about his marriage proposal to him from a remote village. Sulthan chose to bring the whole neighborhood to the village to keep them away from tension. She had no idea that she was stepping into a situation she wanted to avoid so badly.
Movie copyright has been sold. Aha acquires Sultan Karthi’s Telugu digital rights. At the same time, the Hindi and Tamil rights were acquired by Goldmines Films and Hotstar, respectively.
What is the Response of Films?
Manoj Kumar R of The Indian Express delivered the film four stars out of five, praising the production values and emotional beats. M Suganth of The Times Of India gave the film three and a half stars out of five and called it a meeting of the Seven Samurai and Mahabharat, further enhancing the writing while noting that the ruffians were “disappointing”.
A critic from Sify.com also gave the film three and a half stars out of five. He praised the action sequences, achievements, and background scores while noting the influence of the film Seven Samurai Mahabharata and films in Tamil and Telugu such as Thevar Magan, Srimanthudu, Mirchi, and Baahubali. Bharathy Singaravel of The News Minute also offered a related rating, with praise for Karthi’s work and her on-screen relationship with Lal, the action series, soundtrack, further noting that the film is an improvement over Kannan’s debut film, Remo.
Haricharan Pudipeddi of the Hindustan Times gave positive reviews, describing it as “a highly anticipated but fun action drama,” also noting much of it got from Thevar Magan and Maharshi. Another concrete review came from The Hindu’s Srinivasa Ramanujam, which praised the action series, performances, background scores, cinematography and lyrics.
Sulthan originally scheduled for release in May 2020. However, it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was later recorded for release during Pongal (January 14, 2021), Clashing with Vijay’s Master (2021). However, the authors do not approve of such releases through that date. In February 2021, the film’s release date was published on April 2, 2021, along with the paraphrase dubbed Telugu being released simultaneously.
In March 2021, producer SR Prabhu demanded that the film be released on that date, although it was rumored that the film might be delayed due to the elections for the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly and the increasing cases of COVID-19 across Tamil Nadu. The major pre-release events for the film take place on March 24, 2021 at Sathyam Cinemas in Chennai.
Release Date of Sulthan OTT
The film reached the Box office on April 2, 2021; It hasn’t finished in 24 hours, and it’s already a hit. Movie copyright has been distributed. The OTT platform has received a copy of it, and they have already worked on the voiceover voiceover. And it will at least take some time 40-60 days to complete the whole project. Actor Sharad Kelker is expected to provide a Hindi Voice-over. The information has not been confirmed by the production. But, chances are that Sharab Kelker did the job because she did such an amazing job in the film Bahubali.
Karthi put out a statement about the OTT platform saying They (OTT platform) give you the option to explore different types of content, things you can’t do for the big screen. Last year, when we were all unsure about theater, OTT was the only cure for a producer. We have passed that stage now. Dominate has ensured that people will still crowd the cinema halls.
