Tamil actor Karthi is returning to the silver screen after a long time with 'Sulthan'. He was last seen in Master director Lokesh Kanagaraj's film Kaithi in which his performance was top notch. The film title reminds us of Bollywood actor Salman Khan's Sultan. But, Karthi's film has no connection with it. in fact, the Kolywood movie is totally different from it. Sulthan is the second movie to release in theatres after COVID-19 restrictions were eased. The first movie was Vijay's Master which released on Pongal. However, the govt had then given its nod only for 50% occupancy. Are you wondering if the audience will walkinto theatres to watch the film? Are you waiting for the review to know the Karthi's selection of the story? Here we go with the review of Karthi's Sulthan.

Karthi and Rashmika performances
Second half is a bit dragging but it's watchable.
Verdict: A decent commercial film. It's a one time watch. Karthi and Rashmika steal the show.
