“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.
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.
Mohenjo Daro Review By IMDb
That lyricist Javed Akhtar too was part of the team made the occasion all the more exciting. Normally, when you make a period film, you try to recreate the sights and sounds of that era. But so little is authentically known about the Mohenjo Daro period that a faithful recreation doesn’t seem likely. Check full IMDB report
Roshan and Gowariker go back a long way, having first worked together in 2008 on the period drama Jodhaa Akbar, based on the relationship between the famous 16th-century Mughal emperor Akbar and his Rajput wife Jodhabai.
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.
