Mohenjo Daro Movie Review Roundup

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review By Raja Sen (Rediff) – 1.5/5

“Mohenjo Daro is a fantasy that has nothing fresh to offer. It banks on the same old brew of love, jealousy and violence, served up in an over-ambitious package that never assumes convincing proportions. Well, this film is called Mohenjo Daro and it is really deadening. It’s a pile of stale tropes that is unlikely to help us understand India’s prehistory any better than we do now. Mohenjo Daro is stuck in the past and not just in terms of its substance. What the film clearly says is that both director Gowariker and Hrithik need to move on and reinvent themselves.”

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review By Hindustan Times – 2.5/5

” The film that narrates the story of the Indus Valley civilization appears to be a mish-mash of director Ashutosh Gowarikar’s previous movies. Watch the film if Hrithik’s physique, dancing skills and flexibility are enough to attract you but you can totally avoid it if a grandeur does not make up for the lack of substance, facts and logic.”

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review By Bollywood Hungama – 2.5/5

” On the whole, MOHENJO DARO comes across as a grand historical fictional tale which appeals only in parts. The lack of engaging and relatable drama act as spoilsport in the narrative. From the Box Office perspective, competition from RUSTOM and lack of crucial narrative will act as a major hindrance.”

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review By Koimoi – 1.5/5

” Mohenjo Daro looks like a costume drama with bad CGI and an absolutely shoddy editing. Mohenjo Daro is a period drama that misses the train right from start. The story is too ordinary and it did not need an Indus valley civilization backing to it. This one is easily passable! Mohenjo Daro is a major failure in terms of both history and execution.”

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review By DNA – 2.5/5

“The problem with the film is that the love story has nothing new to offer. The novelty was the backdrop but that’s amateurishly presented. In terms of look and feel, the film is shoddy. The scale is poor and the VFX even worse. Watch it if you’re a Hrithik Roshan fan. The rest of Mohenjo Daro belongs to a bygone era.”

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review By Bollywood Life – 2/5

“This is no Lagaan. This is no Jodha Akbar. Mohenjo Daro may be better that Ashutosh’s What’s Your Raashee? (actually anything is better than that bore), but the film is a let down on several counts. Watch it only if you want to satiate your curiosity about that era (even that won’t help much) or for Hrithik Roshan. If you want to see a film that lets you learn more about the Indus Valley civilization, forget the idea and open your third standard history books.”

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review By Emirates 24/7

“Hrithik Roshan flaunts his muscular bod, showcases his dance moves and even flexes his facial muscles, but his tactics don’t impress us. We’ve seen these far too many times to warrant any real emotion. Even when he’s fighting in the ring, as two mighty thugs beat him black and blue, there’s no redeeming value. He may be earnest in his performance, but that’s not enough to warrant our journey to the movie hall.”

About Film

Set amid the ancient Indus Valley civilization circa 2016 B.C.E, an indigo farmer from Amri, Sindh named Sarman (Hrithik Roshan) travels upriver to the largest city, Mohenjo-daro, where during a street mishap he saves the life of a beautiful woman named Chaani (Pooja Hegde) who as “The Chosen One” in service to Sindhu Ma, the goddess of the river which is the centre of their culture, is “the symbol of Mother Sindhu’s grace and blessing.” But Sarman soon falls afoul of the politician Maham (Kabir Bedi) and his son Moonja (Arunoday Singh) who are seizing power and starting to rule Mohenjo Daro as an empire. To win Chaani, Sarman must defeat Maham and rouse the people to save their city.
