Critics Review


Hrithik Roshan�s period drama is Agneepath set in prehistoric times!

Ashutosh Gowariker has done complete justice to the era, he needs to be lauded for his courage to even attempt a film about that period. Only a visionary director like him can attempt to make a movie of this grandeur, and he succeeds to some limit in not making a complete mess of the period as everyone would assume(more)

Movie Review

Gowarikar even repeats his own films, as at one point the peasants are protesting against taxes they can�t pay (remember Lagaan?) and also like in Swades the entire village comes together to generate electricity, here they build a bridge to save themselves of their town which is drowning. Yawn!(more)

Mohenjo Daro should've had many more grand moments

Mohenjo Daro should've had many more grand moments. As it is, it's less Ben Hur and more Amrapali - sans the sex appeal of Vyjanthimala's bustiers. However, its scale and imagination make it an interesting watch - as does the intriguing notion of Hrithik as India's first pratham sevak. (more)

This Hrithik Roshan film is a lost cause

Hrithik Roshan can't rescue this film. Ashutosh Gowariker makes it bigger but not better. Pooja Hegde needs a better debut. Mohenjo Daro is a plod.(more)

Mohenjo Daro is stuck in the past and not just in terms of its substance

Mohenjo Daro, which means Mound of the Dead, wasn't the name of the place that this film is set in. It got the moniker only after it was discovered by archaeologists. Which city in the right mind would call itself Mound of the Dead? 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. (more)
