Making a period drama is never easy. Specially when the said period has very little information about it. There are always high risks of the film becoming factually incorrect or depicting something wrong. Perhaps that's why Ashutosh Gowarikar's latest Mohenjo Daro looks intriguing.
Set in one of the earliest civilization that history has seen- the Indus Valley Civilization, the film is a story of good over evil. Hrithik Roshan plays a peasant who revolts against the oppressive landlord.
The film also marks the debut of actress Pooja Hegde.
Roshan and Gowarikar have in the past worked together in Jodha Akbar so the expectation from their second film together is naturally sky rocket

Astrologer and Tarot reader Shradha Salla looks at the stars and predicts what is in store for the two releases of the week. Akshay Kumar’s Rustom and Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daroare clashing at the box office this weekend. Read on to find out how these two films will fare at the box-office...
“Akshay Kumar has created much hype for Rustom. The protagonist of the film works in the armed forces and it is releasing around Independence Day, that will benefit to the film. It’s a smart move. The trailer and songs like Tere Sang Yaara have already become popular and audiences are excited to watch this film. This is the kind of movie that has repeat v
“Ashutosh Gowariker has got a lot of very interesting musical sensibilities and he loves the process of creating music. So with him, he picks up the right tunes, he picks up the right lyrics and picturises them with so much of passion. So it’s always a pleasure working with Ashutosh. Some of the iconic songs I have done are in his movies. ‘Yeh Jo Des’ or ‘Khwaja Mere Khwaja’ and from ‘Lagaan’ songs like ‘Chale Chalo’ and ‘Mitwa’.”
“‘Mohenjo Daro’ is looking great, Hrithk (Roshan) is looking very nice. I wish the whole team great success,” Rahman said at an event for the music platform Qyu
I have known Ashutosh Gowariker for a long time, but the last proper conversation we had happened over a decade ago, on the sidelines of a seminar marking the 400th death anniversary of Emperor Akbar. Gowariker was then researching Jodhaa Akbar, a movie that drew extensively from the recorded history of the Mughal emperor’s life and blending that with an invented romance between him and his Rajput wife.
Having witnessed how eager the filmmaker was to comprehend the historical background of the Mughal epoch, I’m sure the consultations he had with leading Indus civilisation scholars in the process of making his latest blockbuster, Mohenjo Daro, went far beyond the usua
Akshay Kumar‘s Rustom and Hrithik Roshan‘s Mohenjo Daro are two of the most anticipated films of the year as a lot of money is riding on each of them. However, both these biggies are set to clash at the box office as they release on August 12. Though both the films have different genres (Rustom is a film based on the Nanavati case, Mohenjo Daro is a period love story set during the Indus civilisation), it looks like they will hamper each other’s collections as they clash. If you remember, last year a similar situation played out when Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani clashed. Between these two biggies, Bajirao Mastani outperformed Dilwale. So who will outperform the other –
Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro and Akshay Kumar's Rustom are slated to release on the same day and while Salman Khan, Ranveer Singh and Sonam Kapoor have come out supporting Rustom, no one seems to support Hrithik and his Mohenjo Daro.
When asked about the same, he said “ It is a good thing. It’s a fraternity. If someone needs support then we must support,”
Looks like the next weekend is going to be a tough fight!
Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan's upcoming periodic drama 'Mohenjo Daro' has reportedly raked in an estimated Rs 60 crore before its big release on Friday. Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the film has collected the said amount by selling its satellite rights for an alleged Rs 45 crore. The film's music which has been composed by music maestro AR Rahman has reportedly been sold for an estimated Rs 15 crore. 'Mohenjo Daro' was made at an estimated budget of Rs 120 crore, which the makers are now confident of recovering when the film hits theatres this coming weekend. The film that stars Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde in leading roles will take viewers back to the da
It’s well-accepted that A.R. Rahman’s music almost inevitably ‘grows’ over a number of listens. This idea has established itself over the years when many of his albums have gone through the graph of disappointing, to not-so-bad, to pretty-good. Sometimes, it amuses me how a song I was so dismissive about after the first listen is now a permanent resident of my playlist. His complexly produced songs slowly reveals their layers, the free-form structure take time to register. Of course, this is not exclusive to Rahman but applies to the work of other composers as well. But I must admit I am extra cautious when reviewing a Rahman album, trying to give it as many listens a
Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan has reportedly refused to promote his upcoming movie Mohenjo Daro on the dance based celebrity reality show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa'. This news has come along with another piece of update that the actor was asked to take his film to Krushna Abhishek and Bharti Singh starrer 'Comedy Nights Bachao', and not everyone enjoys the roast.
One of the most important element in the promotions of the films are reality show, as the TRPs of these shows are really high and the filmmakers can reach a larger audience by appearing on them. But we think, Hrithik isn't too comfortable with this route.
It takes two to tango, but that is hardly the case when two much-anticipated films declare war on each other at the box office. With just three weeks to go for the Independence Day clash between Hrithik Roshan's 'Mohenjo Daro' and Akshay Kumar's 'Rustom', both camps are going the whole hog to generate maximum publicity for their film. After all, trade buzz will determine which of the two secures more screens and shows.
'Mohenjo Daro' is Hrithik's second film with his Jodhaa Akbar director, Ashutosh Gowariker; the epic adventure-romance is set in 2600 BC in that ancient city of the Indus Valley Civilisation era. This one is reportedly made on a budget of
Filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker's best known work Lagaan and his new film Mohenjo Daro are both period pieces but they have more in common than just that. Both films - one set in a British Raj-era village, the other in the Ancient Indus Valley - were filmed in Bhuj, Gujarat.
The Mohenjo Daro set was constructed on the land where Lagaan's cricket pitch once stood. Lagaanreleased in 2001 but when Team Mohenjo Daro arrived to begin filming, what did they find but the cement platform that the cricket pavilion had been built on. It remains, six-odd years later.
The foundation of the cricket pavilion still stands but Bhuj itself has chan

Ever since the time the trailer of Ashutosh Gowariker's magnum opus Mohenjo Daro was released, it has been making news for all the right reasons.
