One of the most awaited trailers of 2016 is out. Featuring Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hegde in the lead, Mohenjo Daro has been directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar – who has previously directed films like the Oscar nominated ‘Lagaan’, ‘Swades’ and ‘Jodhaa Akbar’.
The music has been composed by A.R. Rahman, lyrics have been penned by Javed Akhtar.
Ashutosh Gowarikar’s press statement:
“Mohenjo Daro is not just another historical; it’s pretty much even before history begins. It’s literally going back in the womb of time. It’s a world that I am most fascinated with — who were the people, how did they live, what was the society like, are some of the questions which always intrigued me. I am thankful that I got this opportunity to explore that world through cinema”
“Since this was a make believe world so when I started my research, during the initial phase, I came across Mr. Jonathan Mark Kenoyer’s books “Ancient India: Land of Mystery” and “Excavations at Mohenjo Daro”. I immediately got in touch with Mr. Kenoyer, Dept. of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin to seek his assistance. He has worked at the Mohenjo Daro excavation site for the past 35 years. To my good fortune, he agreed to participate to help me realize the true potential of the story on film. He then suggested to me other esteemed names who could give me inputs on the undeciphered Sindhu script, culture, the town planning and any and every other aspect that seems necessary. They were -R. S. Bisht, Ex-Director, ASI; Prof. Vasant Shinde Jt. Director, Puna University; Dr. P. Ajithprasad, Dept. of Archaeology and Ancient History, MSU, Baroda; K. Krishnan, Dept. of Archaeology, MSU, Baroda; and V.N.Prabhakar, Deputy Superintending Archaeologist, Aurangabad. It was wonderful that they could impart their study, analysis and knowledge to this project.”
Looks even better and more awesome when u watch it 2nd time. Loved it absolutely.
At 0:15 Hrithik walking out in the battle area reminded me of Russel Crowe walking out the same way in Gladiator. Gave me goosebumps. I am sure there will be an epic fight scene when he comes out where Hrithik will fight it out with some big guys (can be seen at 2:04, 2:18 and 2:22). Kind of reminded me of that epic Gladiator scene.
After watching this trailer one can see the huge efforts (by Ashutosh, Hrithik and the entire MD team) and the amount of money which has gone into this movie. Rustom shall be an awesome movie too but I really hope now that MD gets a big solo release which it deserves. But from another perspective it is also not fair from Rustom makers to give way to others. I just hope both get this sorted out in a manner best fitted for both.
Baahubali, BM and now this movie. Happy to see the bollywood film makers are willing to take the risk. Hopefully this one will be huge success too just like the last two movies.

Mohenjodaro is another Kites/Guzaarish. Will fail at the box office.
