Mohenjo Daro Critics Review and Ratings 

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By:Raja Sen Site:Rediff

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.

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.

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.

Ratings:2/5 Review By:Sreeju Site:BollywoodLife

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.
