Ashutosh Gowariker’s film Mohenjo Daro is an antiquated love story-cum-revenge drama that never rises above its clichés. Borrowing plot points from both The Lion King and Gladiator, the film tells the oldest story in the book: Downtrodden hero goes google-eyed over upper-caste girl, then avenges his father’s death while rebelling against an evil overlord. I’m going with two out of five for Mohenjo Daro. AR Rahman’s score, and the sincerity that Hrithik brings to the film are its only strengths. Let’s face it, this tale was best left in the ruins.

It breaks my heart to say this because so much talent and sweat is involved but Mohenjo Daro is a mess. It has ambition and scale.In an interview, Ashutosh had requested viewers to suspend disbelief when they see the film. I really tried. But eventually Maham’s horned headdress defeated me. I’m going with one and a half stars.

On the whole, Mohenjo Daro is a box-office disaster and will be rejected by the paying public. It will entail back-breaking losses to its producers and distributors and to everyone associated with the film and will, therefore, go down in film history as a colossal flop.

It is a question we, the audience, would do well to echo, because it is hard to fathom what on earth led to this film being made. Within the first couple of minutes, which involve Roshan and a crocodile, it is clear that this is a children’s film, with cardboard characters -- bearing, for some reason, Mandrake Comics names like Lothar and Hojo -- and an oversimplified, overfamiliar plotline.

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.

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 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.

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.

The storyline is basic. How a boy is taken back to his roots and helps to dethrone a baddie to save his 'motherland from his clutches. In this journey of awakening, we find mentions of the righteous river Sindhu and how that civilisation found the holy river Ganga.Overall, do watch 'Mohenjo Daro' for Hrithik Roshan only. But keep your history textbooks miles away from it!

The morality tale of good trumping evil is engaging and the climax, which involves an all-consuming flood is well captured. While Hegde lends good support, Bedi and his on-screen son snarl and roar to make their displeasure known. This is Roshan’s showcase all the way. While it splutters in places, the folkish epic makes for a good one-time watch.

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 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.

When a filmmaker of Ashutosh Gowariker’s repute decides to make a movie on Mohenjo Daro, the biggest settlement of Indus valley civilisation, you would expect him to be historically accurate yet retain his worth as a storyteller. However, his ‘Mohenjo Daro’ fails on both accounts.What’s even more questionable is the decision to invest in music (A R Rahman) and costume, but not on graphics, especially when it’s crucial to the narrative. The climax footage is profoundly dodgy, making you wonder how Gowariker green-lighted it. What’s even more dampening is the story, which is so archaic in tone and texture that it leaves us detached and thoroughly bored.

  3. Its a must watch movie hrithik stills show

  4. It seems like these site is only opened to criticize Hrithiks movie ,My dear Sneha or what ever you name is you don't know the meaning of a good movie i guess Happy new year or flims like wanted has impressed you the most ,when all other critics are giving the movie thumps up as it deserves ,you seems like pulling you personal vendetta .

  5. Agree. It is created just for negative reviews. Completely paid review.
    Movie is extra ordinary. It takes you to different era. Superb performance by Hrithik and as expected great direction by Ashutosh.
    Recommend to all of you to watch Mohenjo Daro instead of reading such wrong reviews.

  6. Yet another Hrithik's BEST performance and BEST direction by Ashutosh Gowarikar. Superb music by AR Rehman. People don't judge by its audio release. Go and watch MD, you will fall in love my Rehman's tracks. Excellent debut of Pooja. She has done justice to her role. Highly recommend to watch this movie.
    Such great cinematic movies should be watched in theatres.

    1. Lol are you out of your mind moron. So,you're suggesting we go watch this crap, waste our money abd then decide..go to hell idiot

  11. What an awsome movie. Mindblowing experience. Should watch this movie on big screen.
    A. R. Rehman has done fantastic job. Ashutosh's direction is Outstanding. And Hrithik with his brillant performance steals the show.
    MUST WATCH movie guys.

  12. Awsome experience. Loved this movie. Hrithik Roshan is brilliant and Ashutosh has done outstanding direction.

  13. मोहेंजो दारो:
    कहो ना ‘बोर’ है! [2/5]

    इतिहास के पन्नों में झांकना अपने आप में मनोरंजन से कम नहीं है. हज़ारों कहानियां, और हर कहानी में विस्मयाधिबोधक घटनाओं की भरमार; बशर्ते आपमें तथ्यों को नज़रअंदाज़ करने और घटनाओं की सत्यता पर प्रश्नवाचक चिन्ह न लगाने की सहनशीलता भारी मात्रा में हो. और फिर आशुतोष गोवारिकर की ‘मोहेंजो दारो’ तो बस एक आम सी बॉलीवुड फिल्म है जिसका वास्तविक इतिहास से उतना ही लेना देना है, जितना आपका और हमारे जैसे कम-पढ़ाकू जानकारों का, जिनको बात-बात में गूगल-देव की सेवाएं लेने में रत्ती भर भी झिझक नहीं होती. अगर आपने स्कूल की इतिहास की किताब में सिन्धु घाटी सभ्यता के बारे में वो एक 6-8 पन्नों वाला चैप्टर भी ध्यान से पढ़ा होगा, तो आपको अंदाजा हो जायेगा कि ‘मोहेंजो दारो’’ के साथ, गोवारिकर आपको 2016 से 2016 ईसापूर्व में ले तो गए हैं, पर बॉलीवुड के घिसी-पिटी और बेरस कहानी कहने के फार्मूले को यहीं छोड़ना भूल गए.

    नगर बुरे लोगों के चंगुल में है. कभी खुशहाली बसती थी यहाँ, मोहेंजो दारो में, अब झूठ, छल और ठगी का व्यापार होता है. आम लोगों पर मनमाने करों का बोझ लादा जा रहा है. ऐसे में, एक बाहरी साहसी नवयुवक सरमन [ह्रितिक रोशन] नगर में आता है. उसे लगता है उसका कोई पुराना रिश्ता है इस नगर से. यहीं उसे अपनी संगिनी भी मिलती है, चानी [पूजा हेगड़े], जिसे पाने की कोशिश उसे नगर के प्रधान महम [कबीर बेदी] और उसके बेटे मूंजा [अरुणोदय सिंह] के सामने ला खड़ी करती है. सरमन अब जन-जन की आवाज़ बन चुका है. पर अभी और भी कुछ राज हैं, जो उसके सामने खुलने बाकी हैं. उसका इस नगर से क्या वास्ता है? उसका अपना अतीत और नगर का भविष्य दोनों एक ही धागे के दो छोर हैं, पर उलझे हुए. फिल्म का अंत सब सवालों का हल लेकर आता है, पर अहम् सवाल ये है कि इस औसत दर्जे की कहानी को मोहेंजो दारो के ऐतिहासिक चमक-दमक का चोला पहनाने की जरूरत क्या थी?

    पीरियड फिल्मों में ‘मोहेंजो दारो’ गोवारिकर की सबसे कमज़ोर फिल्म है. ऐसा नहीं है कि आशुतोष आपको सिंघु घाटी के नज़दीक ले जाने में कोई चूक करते हैं, पर इस बार न तो उनके पास ‘लगान’ जैसा ड्रामा है, न ही ‘जोधा-अकबर’ जैसा शानदार स्केल. फिल्म अपने रोचक, पर बनावटी और कुछ ज्यादा ही अलबेले कॉस्टयूम डिज़ाइन से आपका ध्यान कहानी की गंभीरता (?) से भटकाती रहती है. फिल्म में इस्तेमाल हुए विजुअल ग्राफ़िक्स का औसत स्तर भी फिल्म का एक बहुत बड़ा कमज़ोर पक्ष है. ‘सपने’ को ‘सपीने’, ‘सवाल’ को ‘सुवाल’ जैसे उच्चारण के साथ, आशुतोष उस वक़्त की बोलचाल की भाषा के लिए जिस तरह का प्रयोग करते हैं, वो हास्य उत्पन्न करने के लिए तो सटीक लगता है, पर वास्तविकता से उसको जोड़ने में भरोसेमंद साबित नहीं होता. ए आर रहमान का संगीत ही है, जो एक पल के लिए भी अपने आपको शक के घेरे में खड़ा नहीं होने देता. उनके संगीत में एक तरह का कबायली ‘टच’ है, जो आपको बांधे भी रखता है, और उनसे और उम्मीद करने की छूट भी देता ही.

    अभिनय में, नितीश भारद्वाज [बी आर चोपड़ा की ‘महाभारत’ के कृष्ण] एक बिलकुल नए रूप में आपको बहुत अरसे बाद परदे पर देखने को मिलते हैं. ताज्जुब होता है, भारतीय सिनेमा उनसे इतने दिन तक दूर कैसे रह पाया? उन जैसे ही अभिनय-प्रतिभा के कुछ और धनी नरेन्द्र झा और मनीष चौधरी भी फिल्म में दिखाई तो पड़ते हैं, पर महज़ खानापूर्ति के लिए बनी भूमिकाओं में. अरुणोदय सिंह अपनी कद-काठी के साथ अच्छा प्रभाव डालते हैं, अच्छे लगते हैं. कबीर बेदी इस तरह की भूमिकाओं में हमेशा सहज रहे हैं, हालाँकि उनसे बहुत कुछ की उम्मीद करना भूल ही जाईये. पूजा हेगड़े बहुत अलग सी दिखती हैं. उनकी अगली फिल्मों का चयन काफी हद तक उनकी पहचान बनाने में अहम साबित होगा. ह्रितिक पूरी फिल्म अपने कन्धों पर ढोते नज़र आते हैं, पर इस मुकाम पर इस तरह की औसत फिल्मों में उनका होना उनकी सारी मेहनत, कवायद और शख्सियत के लिए शायद एक उल्टा खेल साबित हो.

    आखिर में; ‘मोहेंजो दारो’ ऐतिहासिक स्थलों के उस टूर की तरह है, जहां लोकेशन्स अपनी एक अलग कहानी बयां करने की कोशिश कर रहे हैं, पर आपका टूर गाइड रटे-रटाये तरीके से, अपनी सहूलियत के हिसाब से, आपको अपनी गढ़ी हुई एक अलग ही कहानी बताये जा रहा है, जो न तो सच है, न ही रोचक...और कभी-कभी तो बहुत बोर!! [2/5]

  14. Two minutes silence for those useless fellow who called themselves a critics. Great movie guys Everyone should watch ... Feeling disappointed because of Indian Movie critics reaction.. What a shame.. They don't like it? Why? WTH? They can't pleased unless an item song are placed in the movie. Such shame.

    1. Completely agree with you. Its such a shame they call themselves critics.

  15. Two minutes silence for those use-less fellow who called themselves a critics. Great movie guys Everyone should watch ... Feeling disappointed because of Indian Movie critics reaction..

  17. Wordings from rediff and Ndtv are same in review, though given different ratings. How???

  18. Wordings from rediff and Ndtv are same in review, though given different ratings. How???

  19. "Kaho na Mohanjodaro Hai""... No I wont... Cos... Safety razor was invented before collapse of Mohenjo-Daro... The hair style and side logs Hrithik sports in 2016 are inspired by saloons of Mohenjo-Daro... And people wore pre stitched dhotis... Everyone had machine stitched tops... and Hair colour with streaks... Don't miss dance moves from ABCD... And the WWE wrestlers... And a cross river swim by Hrithik the Olympian... Some water & spice rescue from Moses 'Ten Commandments' and water destruction from "Titanic"... Gold extraction idea from "Mask of Zoro"... Tax issues from Lagan and Mohsul from Joda Akbar... Sorry it's neither indigenous 'Gladiator' or 'Troy'...What have you done Ashutosh ... 'What's your Raashi"... Whatever it might be you must add an "S" to your name and spell it as 'ASShutosh'... This was not about making INDUS look like GREEKS and Egyptians.... ASShutosh will you name your city "Mounds of Dead" thats is what Mohenjo-Daro means...Thank God he didn't say that he would guide them to promised land... Or maybe he did.... ‪#‎mohanjodaro‬ ‪#‎hrithikroshan‬ ‪#‎review‬
