"Yes, I will be reviewing Sultan.
This is something I've had an internal debate about in the past too, and I've always come to the realisation that a film is bigger than one person. In India, especially, we tend to associate a film with the actors in it; the presence of stars dominates pretty much all other conversation around it. But a film is a result of hundreds of people working on it in unison, and toiling over it for months.
The moment you decide to not review/boycott a particular actor's film, you are reinforcing the belief that the star dominates the medium.
I believe Raja has clarified that he isn't trying to claim the moral high ground or see it snowballing into a movement, and that his is a personal reaction to the entire episode. He believes that how he feels about it might come in the way of him being objective about Sultan and, hence, he'd rather not review it - this is what I've gathered from his social media posts. That's a fairly good reason for any critic to not want to review a film, and I support it.
If I ever feel that bias may play a part in how I feel about a film, I will (and I have) refrain from reviewing it too."
