Director Ashutosh Gowariker's much-awaited movie "Mohenjo Daro," starring Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde, has received positive reviews from the audience.
"Mohenjo Daro" is an epic adventure-romance film, which is set in 2016 BC at the height of the Indus Valley civilisation. Besides direction, Ashutosh Gowariker has also written the story and screenplay for the movie. He has done extensive research to develop its script for three years and also worked with archaeologists to ensure authenticity of his fictional story.
The film revolves around the story of a young Indigo farmer Sarman (Hrithik Roshan) who travels to the great city of Mohenjo Daro. He falls in love with a high-status woman Chaani (Pooja Hegde), the daughter of the priest. In his attempt to win her love, he uncovers some secrets about Chaani, the city and his past. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
Hrithik Roshan has done a lot of hard work for his role in "Mohenjo Daro" for two years and his performance is a big highlight of the movie. Pooja Hegde, who has forayed into Bollywood with the film, has delivered a decent performance and her chemistry with Hrithik is a treat to watch on the screen. Kabir Bedi, Arunoday Singh, Suhasini Mulay, Nitish Bharadwaj and others have done justice to their roles, say the audience.
Siddharth Roy Kapur and Sunita Gowariker have jointly produced "Mohenjo Daro" under their banner UTV Motion Pictures and Ashutosh Gowariker Productions Pvt. Ltd. (AGPPL). They have ensured brilliant production values for the film. Engaging screenplay, amazing action and dance sequences, background score and picturisation are the attractions on the technical front, add the audience.
We bring you some viewers' verdict shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of the "Monenjo Daro" movie review by audience:

Started on a very good note #MohenjoDaro #MohenjoDaro title song @iHrithik again and again proving why he is the best dancer among all the superstars of India. Pure visual treat! #MohenjoDaro The hard work of Ashutosh Gowariker and his team is visible in each frame. Film is slow in pace, yet entertaining so far. #MohenjoDaro Probably the first time seeing a solid lip-lock scene in a historical film which can give competition to Emran Hashmi films #MohenjoDaro film losing the entire plot... Not a good sign Interval #MohenjoDaro Started off really well till pre-interval portions, suddenly became an out and out love story/challenge film #MohenjoDaro @iHrithik is tailor-made for the role. Dance, expressions and sincere acting. Totally convincing as a brave farmer Sarman. #MohenjoDaro The challenging fight scene in the second half is one of the best fight scenes filmed at recent times in Bollywood! #MohenjoDaro @iHrithik single handedly making the film a good watch #MohenjoDaro Climax just BRILLIANT! Too much of hard work and paid off very well #MohenjoDaro Partly good and partly tacky. But overall as a film a good effort from Ashutosh Gowariker. Ignore the negativity & go watch #MohenjoDaro @iHrithik is the heart & soul of the film. His performance in last 20 mins will take the film to an another level. Great job #MohenjoDaro @hegdepooja made a confident Bollywood debut as Chaani. Good Chemistry with @iHrithik

Exclusive Review #MohenjoDaro from Overseas. Brilliant film in all Respects. Great Performances & Tight Writing. 4/5 #Hrithik has delivered a career best performance. He nails the character head on and proves that only he could have played such a character. His transformation from farmer to lover to fighter is legendary.
fast paced- Ashu's fastest movie hands down. Loads going on. And the action scenes are fun! can't rate but it's a pretty good film- worth watching on the big screen. The sets, cinematography are stunning. I think the historians can take some rest come tomorrow. It's far from a historical. Out n out fantasy film. treatment makes a big difference to the story. loads of action and trust me I am equally sensitive to it. So is ashu I think but the arena was my fav bit!
Puri sukumar @saishashank4u

Exclusive Review of #MohenjoDaro. SPECTACULAR & OUTSTANDING film ! Mohenjo Daro leaves you spellbound, enthralled, entranced and awestruck. Ashutosh Gowariker makes the legendary characters come alive on screen. Take a Bow ! It also works because of right casting. #HrithikRoshan seems born to play this role and he enacts it with such precision, such flourish, such confidence that it leaves you asking for more. A Mind boggling performance without doubt ! Award Worthy Performance by him. #PoojaHegde is Superb. Oh Yes, she looks ethereal. A flawless performance indeed ! #KabirBedi also gave Outstanding Performance. Good Performances by all supporting actors. The writing is tight, the drama keeps you hooked and the romantic track is wonderful. Dialogues are amazing. At places, soaked in acid. The writer comes up with several gems, yet again. Direction by Ashutosh Gowariker is OUTSTANDING. The D.O.P captures the grandeur to the fullest. The production designing is again Awsome. Action Stunts are simply Mindblowing. VFX is First Rate. Editing is Crispy. A. R Rehman music is not the type that you take to instantly, but yes, it gets beautifully with the mood of the film. Background is also simply Extra Ordinary. On the whole, Mohenjo Daro is without a fantastic film in all Respects. Strongly Recommended to all of u. ☆☆☆☆ 4*/5*
