Mohenjo Daro Review
Though this comes very late , but I could write a review only after I have seen the movie. I had heard rumors that it did not perform quite well on the screens, but voicing out a negative opinion first requires enough verification. And here comes an honest unbiased review of Mohenjodaro.
When a filmmaker like Ashutosh Gowariker thinks to make a movie on one of the most important settlement of the Indus valley civilization- Mohenjo Daro, one would definitely expect it to be historically correct and yet keep his worth as a storyteller.
However, as the movie states, he has failed to retain both the accounts.
Mohenjo Daro is basically a fantasy movie and has nothing to do with the exact historical background. It has nothing new to offer and it is the same old brew of jealousy, love served in a packet full of drama with no proper and convincing proportions.
Moreover with the historic diversions and the surplus reinterpreted scenes, Mohenjodaro definitely does not live up to the built expectations of the eagerly awaiting audiences.
Ashutosh has made the first half a bit comical than historical or rather it was a historical comedy in its own way. We understand Ashutosh had been very much inspired by Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, but that does not imply that he will recreate his own historical occurrences.
And what about cinematography and fashion? I must say as far as history states the fashion of Mohenjodaro was definitely not as provoking as it appears to be on the screens of Mohenjodaro by Ashutosh Gowariker.
The acting department also failed to achieve the level of success. Even at some part you may find it quite amateur. The history lovers will find the movie amusing as they won’t be able to relate the film with the actual plot. Serious movie lovers may think it’s the same old, tedious and boring.
Mohenjo Daro had a clash with Akshay Kumar’s Rustom. Even after all this people are watching this movie just due to their love for Hrithik Roshan. But if you really want to make out something from the movie, please keep the history books miles away.
This movie is solely for Hrithik lovers as here he has flaunted his abs, his great dance moves as well. Pooja Hedge is a beautiful lady who limp expressions makes her an appealing heroine. It’s a one time watch though you will like the historic set but don’t expect much from the movie. Well! Even after Hrithik’s earnest performance, it is not enough to take us to the cinema hall to watch Mohenjo Daro.
