    Salman Khan seems to be hell bent on improving his public image of the unruly bad boy; and as in his last two films, in Sultan too he plays a guy so "good" and "sweet" that it almost becomes an uninteresting character. (The good part doesn't mean he isn't a creepy stalker though - it's Salman Khan after all.)
    That can't be said about Arfa, played by Anushka Sharma, but the film criminally wastes this character by focusing all its attention on Sultan. For all its faux-feminist undertones, this is a thoroughly hero-driven film, and while one might say that this is expected in a Salman Khan starrer, the film underutilizes the one interesting idea it had. (Note how Bajrangi Bhaijaan avoids this same mistake - even though Kareena Kapoor's character is largely missing from the second half of that film, it never belittles her importance in the journey. Here, Arfa is literally relegated to obsolescence after establishing her as a character worthy of our attention in the first half.)
    The rest is all extremely generic stuff for a sports film - director Ali Abbas Zafar sticks too close to the formula, and while a few masala moments are momentarily rousing, it never adds up to anything except such hackneyed life lessons like one must never give up in life.
    The film is riddled with the same problem Zafar's last film Gunday suffered from - it's rooted in the characteristic desi flavour, and it's not like there was no scope for intriguing stuff given the premise, but the film completely fails on the emotive register.
