Mohenjo Daro Movie Review: This Friday we are going to see the much anticipated Mohenjo Daro. The historical adventure film starring Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hedge is directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar. It is produced by UTV Motion Pictures. Let’s take a look at Mohenjo Daro review first.


Hrithik Roshan is coming to silver screens after two years. Ashutosh who has helmed classic like Lagaan and Swades is in the director’s seat. It also has been shot on a grand scale and it took 2 years to complete this project. So expectations are too damn higher for all the right reasons.

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review: Analysis

Set in ancient Indus Valley Civilization, Mohenjo Daro was in the making for too long. But it was worth waiting. No doubt Ashutosh has played with the history at many places but he has made it visually spectacular and story wise compelling. Mohenjo Daro is all about Sarman from the start until the end. The excellent writing and dialogues have made it a delight to watch. The visuals are stunning and the fight sequences look brilliant on screen.

The first part covers the journey of Sarman to Mohenjo Daro and his falling for Channi. Generally, knows as Greek God, Hrithik Roshan is a super strong young man who is the saviour of his people. The second half starts off very well and the audience enjoys the introduction of the few new characters. Yes, there is a lot of action which mainly involved Hrithik and there is no price for guessing that who was the ultimate winner.

Mohenjo Daro stands out for the brilliant conception, enactment and of course execution. The script is very well researched and the makers have taken care of each and every single detail. There is some jaw-dropping action that will keep you on the edge of the seat. The climax is one of another major highlights which will force you to hook to the screens. The few shocking revelations add more drama in the story.

It also has some weak points. Ashutosh takes too much cinematic liberty at times. There are few loopholes and time lapses here and there. The love angle between Hrithik and Pooja is cliched and does not make much sense considering the setting of the film. VFX is just about okay and could have been better. The duration is shorter as compared to other historical films and in doing so most details of the culture of ancient civilization are missing. However it has made it fast paced

Mohenjo Daro Review: Direction, Editing & Screenplay

Ashutosh Gowarikar is a genius and you just cannot complain much about the direction. The sets and cinematography are top-notch which has made it a visual treat. The action sequences are very well executed. There are scenes that will leave you speecless, spellbound and and well also make you nostalgic. It does not have much of VFX and is rightly so as the focus is more on the story. However the costumes is a let-down as it does not suit the theme of the film.

The music by A.R Rahman may have not much impact during its audio release but the songs look excellent in the film. Mohenjo Mohenjo and Tu Hai songs create magic on screens. The background score is sheer brilliance and gives you goosebumps.

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review: Star Performances

♦ Hrithik Roshan undoubtedly has delivered one of his career best performance. He nails the character head on and proves that only he could have played such character. His transformation from a small former to a lover and then to a fighter is legendary. Hrithik will sweep all the awards for best actor next year.

♦ Pooja Hedge makes a good debut. You will fall for her innocence and grace at the same time. She makes a good pair with Hrithik Roshan too. But we wished to see her more in the film.

♦ The supporting cast is absolutely fabulous and gives a tremendous support. Few unknown names shine.

What’s Good:

♦ Well researched Script & Story
♦ Action Sequences
♦ Hrithik delivers one of his career best performance
♦ Brilliantly shoot Climax
♦ Songs are visual treat + Background score


What’s Not:

♦ Hrithik-Pooja love story is too much cliched
♦ Few Loopholes

  16. review of rustom are out too…. and it hat got excellent reviews like mj..
    as per the reviews rustom is the film of the year so far…and akki deserves a national awards for his performance….

  17. Wow Bollyarena team, at Sultan time you said that there is nothing new in story, and you find Mohanjodaro is a brilliant story, How??? Have you not seen such story before in Bollywood…
    A Villain who is Politian and wants to rule the city or country, Heroin who is his daughter or relative, Hero who fights for his love and for country…..What’s new in this, it’s a very common story which we are looking from very long time in Industry…..
    Why everytime every site are against Salman Khan, he is trying to do not only different but also brilliant movies and Box Office result proves it, but no one support or praise his efforts and work….I think SULTAN story is much better and different compare to MJD…
    Nothing against MJD, story is common but still I know it is treat to watch because of it’s big scale….Best Of Luck MJD hope it will do great…

  18. I did not see yet but i hv already told you this will be better than jodha akbar..n jodha akbar also nice movie by ashutosh. I told u i hv faith on directors like ashotosh n sanjay bhansali.

  19. The love story might be cliched, but we have to remember that it is not a modern day’s love story. It’s 2016 BC, and they might have tried to things that way, which may look cliched in today’s world.

  20. Original reports come and it’s getting mixed to negative response and I am right that if bollyarena gives 4 star then movie will be flop

  21. I am really excited to watch Mohenjodaro, definately it will create a history…. Hurray
    After a very long time going to watch Hrithik on Big Screen……..

  22. Bstst performance of hrthik.good stry good direction n good music..dnt judge by gvng stars..judge by seeing u vll definetly get de strng feelng to do somethng fr others..
