Finally, Mohenjo Daro trailer was released yesterday. The film features Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hedge in the lead roles. The trailer has crossed 1.4 million views on Youtube in 17 hours.
It tells the story of Hrithik as Sarman who is an Indigo farmer. The trailer sees Hrithik’s character based in some other location, but he has a tremendous urge to visit Mohenjo Daro as he always feels a certain connection with this place. He falls in love with Pooja Hegde, who plays the character named Chaani in the film. She is seen in a regal avatar decked in a bejewelled head gear and a blue and red outfit. Kabir Bedi is shown as the ruler of Mohenjo Daro. Hrithik is also seen in some intense action sequences in the film.
The expectations were too damn high from the trailer. However, it is quite safe to say that it has failed to live up to that. But it is Hrithik Roshan's superb act which stands out in the whole trailer. He looks perfect to play the lead role. There are also massive sets, extensive fight sequences and an authentic voice over. It has a realistic touch as compared to fantasy films.
What disappoints us is VFX which is below standards. These days, youth watches Game of Thrones and it will not be easy to fool them. The visuals also remind you of Jodha Akbar and Baahuali. Pooja Hedge's character looks beautiful and shares a good chemistry with HR. The villain should have been better. We also miss A.R Rahman's magic at least in the trailer. Maybe they have saved the best for the film. The trailer is also missing a kick or a mindboggling punch.
One thing more, it has nothing to do with Mohenjo Daro civilization.
The trailer is a good one, however, our expectations were too damn high. The focus is more on the plot rather than showing the actual civilization. Hrithik Roshan is splendid as an ancient named Sarman. It will also be interesting to see how this civilization ended as there is a hit towards the end. We have confidence in Ashutosh Gowarikar as trailer sometimes cannot show the film's scale.
As far as box office potential is concerned, it will depend on the storyline.
3.5/5Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
