Mohenjo Daro Movie Review
Set in the ancient period of Indus Valley Civilization, Moehnjo- Daro the movie starts with an action-packed sequence in 2016 BC, where Sarman (Hrithik) is hunting a crocodile in the valley. An eagerness starts right from there when he is seen speaking some medieval type of language, totally above the head. Akin to his very famous style- realistic approach, Gowarikar is enticing people with every second.
Sarman is a rustic of ‘Aamri- the Village’. Right from the beginning, there seems an urge in him to visit Mohenjo-Daro, the civilized zone where the villagers used to visit for business. His uncle-Durjan is afraid of sending him to that zone of greed and brutality where the political power Pradhan- Maham is ruling with inhumanity and callousness. But, later his destiny dooms him to visit Mohenjo-Daro where he finds the love of his life, Chani (Pooja Hegde).
Being the daughter of the saint and the wonder girl who is blessed with the grace of ‘Sindhu Mata’, Chani is prophesied to fetch a new Sun to this civilization. This is the reason that Maham wish her to be his daughter-in-law.
But the stars run for Sarman only and she also falls in love with him. In order to save her from the ‘Mahama’s brutalized and forced decision,’ he later comes to know about his past relating him to this Mohenjo-Daro culture.
Pre-interval the movie seems to be a heartfelt romance and drama kind of movie. A lover in search of his beloved who belongs to the royal house. But the movie takes interesting turn post interval where some revelations, breathtaking fights, and jaw-dropping sequences play a good part.
Chani’s father who is a saint at the temple of ‘Sindhu Mata’ confides some secrets which make Sarman even more encouraged to save Mohenjo-Daro from the sneaky and fierce Maham.
The fights with Man-eaters towards the end are really breathtaking. Hrithik as Sarman really leads the play. In fact, the story is more about Sarman, from starting until the end. With his acting prowess Hrithik always stuns and this time, he floored everyone with his dazzling performances as a brave savior. Even in his rustic appearance, he is flamboyant.
Pooja Hegde is lovable to watch for her grace and beauty. She made really a good debut and Ashutosh did no mistakes in presenting her as the beauty of Mohenjo-Daro. We all have read about this culture and the beauty. But she portrays the innocence and sweetness the best.
Kabir Bedi as Maham is honestly brilliant as a ruthless ruler who intends to smash down the Harappa culture for his personal reasons. His confidence, body language and the accent he has in the movie, depicts him a true thespian of every sequence.
The screenplay, cinematography, and the visuals are mind-boggling. There are some sequences that take you to the edge of your sit. Mohen-jo Daro is a course of top-notch execution of the concept, brilliant enactment, and awe-inspiring direction. Music with songs truly compliments the back drop. The background score is so good to give Goosebumps. Action sequences give out the brilliance of an actor like Hrithik Roshan.
Director Ashutosh Gowarikar’s direction is sheer brilliance when it comes to portraying India. Whenever he takes a stand to portray real Indian culture he nails it down and so is Mohenjo Daro. Those who are ardent fans of History would like this epic drama.
In nutshell, if you want to taste the flavor of true glory and want to relive the Indus Valley Culture, Mohenjo-Daro is your cup of tea. Enjoy this Action Packed historic drama this weekend.
