Mohenjo Daro may have become the sixth highest opener of 2016 at the box office but the Hrithik Roshan film is still being described as below par. Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the period drama set in the Indus Valley Civilization opened to largely unfavorable reviews. Moreover, below average acting of Pooja Hedge, meaningless stunts and a bizarre script led to the films unsuccessful run among fans who are preferring the real life Biopic over the period drama set in the B.C. age.
With the middle-eastern countries being the only place overseas where the respective film has garnered positive reviews, the overall box office collection of the movie has been very poor outside the country. The movie got a decent amount of footfall during the weekends but not enough to actually give pace to the very slow box office collections of this Ashutosh Gowarikar venture. The overseas box office collection of Mohenjo Daro for Wednesday has generated revenue of Rs. 1.5 crores.
One of the dissatisfied audience expressed his views on the movie as I went to the movie with a lot of expectations. The movie turned out to be a big disappointment. Music is good. Photography is good and so are the settings. Apart from that nothing really connects to the title. None of the characters have much to do. The heroine has been used as a product, except showing skin she doesn’t really have anything to do. Kabir bedi is good with his deep voice.
With a whopping budget of 135 crores with a running time of 150 minutes, Ashutosh Gowarikar’s venture was slated to be among the headlines since it’s first teaser came out. Sadly, the expectations revolving the movie were not lived up to the expectations and is pegged as a sheer wastage of time and money by few people who have already visited the movie halls to watch this Hrithik Roshan’s big budget flick.
