CAST & CREW
Riyasat is the last film of Bollywood’s first superstar, Rajesh Khanna. It is an adaption of Hollywood’s cult-classic, ‘The Godfather’.
Saheb (Rajesh Khanna) is the Godfather of the city. He is the affluent underworld don who helps the needy people. He has two sons, Shakti ( Aryan Vaid) and Vijay ( Aryeman Ramsay). While Shakti is the next Sahab in the making and the successor of the kingdom, Vijay is plainly uninterested in all this. Turmoil begins when some dangerous people with malicious schemes enter Saheb’s province. What did he do to stop him? Does the combat change his life forever? Watch the movie to find out.
Why did Ashok Tyagi and Vijay Sirohi think of adapting ‘The Godfather’? Why did they want to cast Rajesh Khanna for the lead role? God knows! Ashok Tyagi’s direction falters. The patchy screenplay doesn’t help. Dialogues drag on forever and test your patience. The background music for Saheb is too deafening to add to the vibes of the film.
The superstar, Rajesh Khanna, doesn’t look a bit interested. He seems ill, and his dialogues are too forced. There is no aura around him. Aryan and Aryeman are good. Others are just okay.
1. The Saheb you don’t want to see.
2. Loud music.
3. Lazy writing.
What’s not there?
1. Superstar, you loved.
2. Interesting screenplay.
If you are a Rajesh Khanna, please don’t watch the movie (we can’t see him like this).
