Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro isn’t out for another 4 days or so, but industry insiders have already watched it and appreciated the fast-paced love story. As reported earlier, this is director Ashutosh Gowariker’s shortest film with a run-time of 150 minutes. What’s more surprising is that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) that has been strict with films lately, has passed Mohenjo Daro without any cuts, awarding it with an U/A certificate.
Pooja, in her recent interviews, has said how it was never awkward filming kissing scenes with Hrithik. First, because it’s technical and there are scores of people watching the stars get intimate. Second, the superstar has always been a friend and a good advisor to her, which helped her be at ease during such scenes. Mohenjo Daro arrives in theatres on Aug. 12, same day as Akshay Kumar’s Rustom.
Ashutosh’s magnum opus may have been met with a lukewarm response so far, but people might just flock to theatre because they get to see Hrithik on the silver screen after two long years. Only time will tell if Mohenjo Daro can rise out of ashes and claim supremacy or if it will bite the dust this coming weekend at the box office.
Just 4 days to go before the clash of the year – when Mohenjo Daro and Rustom release on the same day. Since Point 10 both movies are carrying excellent reports, the film trade believes that history will be repeated. Time and again, we’ve seen two big movies releasing on the same date and winning hearts. Now the trade believes the same will happen this time as well. Hrithik Roshan’s fans are hungry for more and this is good news for them as well as the industry. Let’s hope Rustom too manages to impress the fans, and, later, the audience as well.
