Review: Mohenjo Daro: A fine attempt!!! ***

1492nd BLOG POST -->>


Mohenjo Daro is another movie that was awaited since its announcement. And when we talk about Ashutosh Gowariker, there is always high expectations from him. He has given Bollywood some of the best modern classic movies like Lagaan, Swades, Jodha Akbar etc. Hrithik's involvement in his film raises the expectation more than the double because he is one of the most hard-working and inspirational actor in today's time. For Mohenjo Daro, the makers had a lot of money out of which they had an opportunity to create something very epic like Baahubali etc. After watching the movie, I do feel that the effort has been put but somewhere, they couldn't hit the jackpot with the kind of resources they had.

The movie begins slowly and takes it time to develop the momentum. Only after Hrithik reaches Mohenjo Daro and meets the girl he likes does the story moves ahead. Till then, its very slow which has always been the drawback of Gowariker's movies. He does not keep the things paced and fast. He likes to move slowly with the main plot and takes a lot of time in building the premises. It worked with Jodha Akbar, Swades etc but it doesn't look great every time. The story really begins in 2nd half when all the fighting, actions and revelations take place. The concept that Ashutosh built himself of how people must have been living during 2016 BC and what actually must have happened that Mohenjo Daro got destroyed is brilliant. The only problem is that it has several references from previous Bollywood movies because of which it didn't seem to be new by any means. 

The set is grand and the VFX is fine. If VFX could have been handled little more passionately, the movie would have looked much grandeur than now. Hrithik Roshan has given his soul to each and every scene and it shows on the screen. There is no complaint from him except that he should ask for few changes like other superstars according to himself. Pooja Hegde is not up to the mark which is another reason why the movie looks dull whenever she is involved. Kabir Bedi, Arunodaya Singh and other supporting casts have also played their parts well. The music of the movie is very soulful and no complains from A R Rehman. I give this movie 3 stars. It is one-time watch.
