Here is our 10-point-movie-review for the film:
# Mohenjo Daro turns out to be movie that fights hard to become an epic drama but amid its loose connect it leaves ordinary audiences with an overall ordinary experience.
# Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan's energy works in favour of Mohenjo Daro and keeps audiences engaged in its 155 minute time span. He plays Sarman's character in the movie.
# Ashutosh Gowariker has also lowered his charismatic direction skills in this one. It looks like he was trying to play perfection in many elements.
# Kabir Bedi’s all new character does leave an impact. He is gruesome traitor in this one but in terms of performance he has delivered one of his best in antagonist characters.
# Pooja Hegde has made her Bollywood debut with the film but it appears that she didn’t get enough space to claim herself on screen. Blame it on other star's presence or writer, but she as Chaani does no wonder in Mohenjo Daro.
# AR Rahman’s music is soulful as always and also one of the reason you will have that essence of happiness rolling back in mind while watching the drama.
# Mohenjo Daro turns out to be a mixture of Lagaan and Jodhaa Akbar but unfortunately stay below both of them. Rains from Lagaan and Hrithik from Jodhaa Akbar try hard to mix well for a brand new recipe from 2016 BC.
# The film do has its moments in between. Hrthik Roshan's magical love tale, death defying fight sequences and unmatched energy do work in favour of Mohenjo Daro.
# Hrithik Roshan took 2 years to return on screens and his performance doesn’t disappoint. (Also Read: Mohenjo Daro Box Office Collection on Day-1)
# Final Verdict: Mohenjo Daro is a must watch drama for all the Hrithik Roshan fans. He has done a power act. Only Akshay Kumar fans should make it a second option as Rustom has also been released on the same day.
