Hrithik Roshan’s injured shoulder delays Mohenjo Daro

Ashutosh Gowariker’s ambitious magnum-opus ‘Mohenjo Daro’, which was scheduled to go on floors next month, has been delayed because of Hrithik Roshan’s shoulder injury.

The actor injured his shoulder while working out in the gym for his upcoming film. His doctors have advised complete six-weeks, which has led to a 6-week delay in the shooting schedule.

The producer of the film Sunita Gowariker confirmed the news to Mumbai Mirror

“Yes, it is true that we have postponed the shoot of Mohenjo Daro. Both Ashutosh and I wanted Hrithik to recuperate fully before beginning the film since we plan to start with action sequences. Now we will start shooting in the first week of January. It is important to us that Hrithik is 100 percent fit and shifting the shooting dates by a few weeks makes a lot of sense.”

A source close to the film said “Mohenjo Daro is a physically demanding film with some challenging action sequences which will be shot in the first schedule itself. Both Ashutosh and Hrithik being the perfectionists that they are did not want to shoot these scenes with a body double. Ashutosh has decided to push the shoot to next year so that Hrithik is fighting fit, lean and strong, when he reports on the sets”

  • Happy New Year Review by Nipun:

    Happy New Year, directed by Farah Khan is among the most awaited movies of the year. The director is back with her favourite superstar SRK through it. Does HNY live upto the expectation? Okay, let’s find .
    Happy New Year is the story of a boxer Charlie (Shahrukh Khan) who wants to pull off the biggest robbery to take revenge of his father(Anupam Kher)’s death. For this, he creates a team with other five people: a half-deaf guy Jag(Sonu Sood),an old batchelor tammy(Boman Irani),ace-puker Nandu(Abhishek Bachchan), a geeky-hacker Rohan(Vivaan Shah) and a dancer(Mohini). To succeed in the mission,they have to take part in World Dance Compitition. So Mohini teaches them dancing and accordingly the story proceeds.

    Director Farah Khan’s HNY is obviously better than her last movie Tees Maar Khan,but it’s not good either. The first half is okay with a few good intro-scenes of all stars. The second half is boring with a lots of manipulative sequences in the story.

    This movie is absolutely poor in sense and logic. The plot is highly manipulative and unrealistic. Many questions will arise on your mind like “how the jury decided to select the team for final by seeing charlie rescuing the kid in a world dance compitition?” or “how Vivaan is hacking all those votes so easily that too in a selection for an international dance compitition,can it be possible?” and so on.The fighting parts between Sonu sood and the bodyguards will remind you of the fighting scenes of any b-grade typical masala film. The comic part works some times like at the time when charlie and his fans tries to learn the dance forms(where dancers use their toes only) and during time of Boman Irani’s Mom. But many times, the comedy simply doesn’t work.The chemistry between the male lead and female lead is decent to below average.
    The cinematography was okay. They could have induced more beautiful locations. However,the stage design, costume design and the work of make up artists are praise-worthy.

    Director Farah khan tries here the same formula as she did in OSO and TMK. In OSO and TMK,the characters were learning acting and shooting for the movie. Here,the characters learn dancing.She has induced some special appearances for comedy. But their parts never offer anything. The script is complicated with so many elements like action,comedy,romanc­e,revenge,petriotism­,dance,hacking and so on which is why the movie looks clumsy and problematic. Director Farah Khan has made this movie only for entertainment,But sadly it’s not offering much of entertainment at all. Even if I ignore the weak story,sense and logic , it hardly gives anything like we haven’t seen before in bollywood. HNY also includer many popular dialogues of old bollywood. The movie is absolutely predictable too.

    The saving graces in the movie are the performances by the actors. SRK has given complete justice to his role even though the role never gives much scope for his acting. My favourite part in HNY is the entry of SRK in the end at the stage where he delivers some quotes about Indiawaale. Deepika plays the role of a non-english speaking girl. She played her part well. Abhishek Bachchan was hilarious at some moments. Best performances in HNY belong to both SRK and junior Bachchan. Boman Irani,Jacky Shroff and Vivaan shah were impressive in their parts. Sonu Sood was decent to good. His looks,physique were great though.

    Music and Choreography, the two important parts of HNY are not impressive at all. Manwa lage is a nice song and the best one in the album. The other tracks are average at best. The background music works well.

    So, over all, Happy New Year is a typical Farah Khan movie where you cann’t expect anything great. It exists to entertain. But to get entertained, you have to leave logic and sense and then we will find it “just satisfactory at best,not more than it”. It’s boring too. Watching such a movie for 3 hours is torturous.

    So in my final words, despite having good performances and good costume and stage design,Happy New Year is clumsy,complicated,j­oyless,problematic,m­anipulative,silly and boring at some places due to its poor script. I am going with two stars. HNY is the most grandly-hyped and grandly-promoted movie. But,where is the grandeur in the movie?

    RATING: 2/5

    • @Nipun good review, your writing skills have improved tremendously! Two questions: One, what’s with the word ‘manipulative’ in all your reviews, what does it mean exactly? Two, why not post review in Happy New Year related topic?

  • I don’t know why he gets injuries often! Work less harder and take it easy. Wish you recover very soon.

  • Get well soon duggu…
    This will b epic….

    Hrithik recently had a surgery n now this injury…
    So instead producers could have started the shooting with non-action schedules… That would have helped both movie n Hrithik a lot…

    Waiting for Mohenjodaro… A long wait ahead… But will b worth the wait…

  • @rahul fool every big movie has a drop on Monday. HNY will beat Kick easily. It is trending better than both CE and kick. You jealous Salmir fans are celebrating at HNYs success. Power of King Khan. Remember Jai ho and Talaash.

  • Bad news for HR fans…we don’t want his movies to get delayed…we want to see more of his movies…hope he recovers soon and come out strongly…

  • @nipun Plot was manipulative? Krrish 3, guzaarish, bang bang , kites, agneepath all were manipulative. And you said Hny is joyless? do you have a brain. The film was very funny and people enjoyed it thoroughly. Paisa vasool film of the year.

  • @ Nipun: Good review…By the way i decided not to watch this movie and give my review…I still did not understand about what Indicine liked in HNY that it gave 4 stars..

    Anyways as predicted by first day reviews,the movie is slowing down and will not collect more than what Chennai Express did…Except first day no other record broken….

  • @indicine: thanks!
    1. I didn’t use manipulative in my reviews for all the movies. I used it in two movies. One is kick and another one is HNY . I feel in them, the story is manipulative. They showed us whatever they want only to bring the so called entertainment even if it doesn’t make much sense. Like, in HNY, there was a scene where the jury announces them as finalist by seeing the help of charlie for the korean team. I feel such things hardly happen in a stage which belongs to ” World’s best dancers”.
    2. Secondly, I posted my reviews here because I want my reviews to be seen by people. I don’t think users will go to the old articles and read my comment there.

  • @ indicine- just because nipun wanna get likes from hr fans and hide himself to getting dislikes from most stupid srk fans. well my last installment of review will be ready till 4 pm. but i wanna publish my all reviews in one comment so co operate with me. its longest review which completed in more than 30 hours.

  • very good review by nipun. but I havnt found the boman introducing scene funny. and the movie was mainly shot in buildings. I cant remember of watching any green field or trees in the film, except manwa lage song. 2.5 / 5 from me.
    bdw, loved both MHN and OSO too much. SRK should do good films instead of doing good promotion. It seems he didnt learn from Ra.One dibacle.

  • Oops. It has been published. Actually I get confused by the updating system on indicine as the earlier comments are published lately compared to latter comments. :)

  • He needs to really take care of his body. The technical team of Mohenjodaro is huge, I hope it won’t face more delays in future.

  • @loki u idiot just see the trending it is dropped by 55% from yesterday which was also not huge then how can u say that it is trending better than kick.I can challenge you that happy new year will not surpass first week collection of kick 164.50cr in first week.so lifetime of kick is also impossible for happy new year u srk fans fans accept that salman is biggest superstar as indicine also said occupancy wise ett is the biggest first day in last four years even better than happy new year.too much fun.

  • Babaji’s HNY Review::

    So i went to the theatre last evening with 2 different mindsets- The trailer was mediocre but indicine rated it 4 stars,so i was quite sceptical about the film.
    I will be writing a hort review here coz no one likes to read a long one i guess.

    STORY:Story of HNY is almost same as that of Dhoom 3 but with a different premise..the only difference being in D3 aamir was avenging for Jackie Shroff and here srk is taking revenge from Jackie shroff! still the story is pretty decent considering it is a Farah khan film.

    DIRECTION:Farah Khan does an appreciable job as HNY is consistently engaging enough.Yes there are sequences that could have been avoided.Fight sequences were overstretched ones and neither appealing.

    CINEMATOGRAPHY:HNY has been shot very well.Right from the first scene it gives a look of a big budget film,dubai has been captured well.

    PERFORMANCES:SRK is as usual brilliant in this film,does well in emotional scenes but it is Abhishek Bachchan and Sonu Sood who are fab.Both are outstanding in their roles.Boman is also very good.Deepika is’nt as quite good as she was in CE but still does a commendable job.Vivaan is decent in his short role while Jackie Shroff is menacing enough for a villain.

    MUSIC:Though many might disagree here but Satakli was the song i enjoyed the most followed by Manwaa lage and Lovely.Overall songs are decent and look good on big screen.

    I was also elated to see “Babaji ka thullu” being said thrice.Also we get to see two of our indicine visitors in HNY.We get a glimpse of our dear Navin uncle,he was there with the Great Britain team to take part in WDC with some broad thigh girls,yes he was the same guy who kissed Boman while swapping the rooms.Also we get to see one of the many Dynamic’s impersonation of Nipun “Ni pung from Korea”..yes he was the little guy whom SRK saved from falling!!
    But all is not well in HNY.There are logical lapses which can’t be ignored and even the people sitting beside me pointed these for ex:How did Charan Grover and WDC organizers never recognized Nandu Bhide?? Also the film is too lengthy,it takes you to sit for more than 3hrs which is really tedious and bcoz this the film lacks a repeat value and which i think is now evident from its dropping collections.

    But still overall HNY is a complete family entertainer,though vulgar at times but still manages to win your heart.
    POSITIVES:
    1)Performance of the whole cast
    2)Comedy Scenes of Nandu Bhide(specially his stripping act)
    3)Music is decent
    4)Film looks grand
    5)The build up to the heist
    6)Vishal and Anurag’s cameo

    NEGATIVES:
    1)Too lengthy
    2)Lacks repeat value
    3)Fight sequences are’nt appealing
    4)Vulgarity in a family entertainer

    Overall it is 3.25/5 from me!!!

  • get well soon HR.
    heard that Mohenjo Daro will release in mid 2016 that means no clash bt Shivaay and Mohenjo Daro.

  • @Ajay Rocks MOhenjoDaro is releasing on 22nd Jan 2016 itself. Shivaay is in scripting stage. Don’t know about it’s rls but don’t wqnt any clash. Best wishes to both movies.

    Get Well soon HR & Get Back In Action.

  • Well this may be a lifetime role as A.Gowariker always gives his actors the best roles. (Aamir-Lagaan, SRK-Swades, Hrithik-Jodha Akbar). This may well be the best role in Hrithik’s career so far. Since JA he hasn’t been getting awards, I hope this one gets him all including National Award. All the best Hrithik, your fans are with you.
    But I think release date needs to be changed, why not they book Eid 2016 or Diwali 2016 (which are still vacant) as 22nd January does not give them a long holiday break.
