Autograph and Rizwan Adatia Production’s Rizwan is the story of a man who succeeds in his business and helps the needy and the poor.
Rizwan (Vikram Mehta) starts his own business, and does a lot of charity once the business flourishes. His accomplices, Ziyad (Sonu Mishra) and Nawaz (Sagar Masrani), then take over his business as they don’t like it when they see him spending his earnings on the needy. But Ziyad and Nawaz seek Rizwan’s pardon when they are unable to handle the flourishing business.
Dr. Sharad Thaker’s story is quite senseless and the same goes for the screenplay. Dialogues (by Haresh Vyas and Dr. Sharad Thaker) are pedestrian.
Vikram Mehta fails to impress in the title role. Keyuri Shah is below the mark as his wife, Salma. Bhargav Thaker is average as Rizwan’s elder brother, Aashiqbhai. Jalpa Bhatt is ordinary in the role of Rizwan’s sister-in-law, Shehla. Sonu Mishra (as Ziyad) and Sagar Masrani (as Nawaz) lend dull support. Gaurav Chansoria (as Sajid) is so-so. Digisha Gajjar (as Reshma), Hitesh Raval and Chirag Katrecha hardly deserve mention.
Haresh Vyas’ direction is poor. Sohail Sen’s music fails to impress. Lyrics (Anil Chavda, Bhavesh Bhatt, Haresh Vyas and Nilza) are commonplace. Sameer Sen’s background music is barely passable. Madhu S. Rao’s camerawork deserves special mention. Other technical aspects, including editing (by Virendra Gharse), are ordinary.
On the whole, Rizwan will face rejection at the ticket counters.
Released on 28-2-’20 at Glamour (daily 1 show) and other cinemas of Bombay thru August Entertainment. Publicity & opening: very poor. …….Also released all over.
