Mohenjo Daro Trailer

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.”



  • Trailer not matched the exception…..
    vfx are not high…..hritik is awesome but other are average…
    Fight scenes looks average , ….
    This will be compared to bahubali and believe me trailer of babubali was 10 times more fantastic because of wonderful locations and vfxs

  • @Pokeholic I also believe that after release, MOHENJO DARO will do Unthinkable at box office…
    And it will open around 25 CR’s or 25+…
    BTW @Saksham bro what’s ur opinion on this whole scenario ?
    And if any1 knows about Saksham’s comment on this page, then pls share the link..
    @indicine if u can do this for me then I will be very thankfully to u..
    And I am waiting for ur reviews on the trailer also
    Thnx in advance :)
    HRITHIK Rules…
    HRITHIK Rocks…

  • Both budhau haklu & Jadoo (Papa’s) boy are only knows for YouTube records more than box office


    real EMPERORS are Salman Khan & Aamir Khan, They have strong grip on box office as well as on the Social networking platforms….

    I’m feeling pity for those morons cum akal se paidal people’s who are still comparing this 2 rs bakwass/illogical and disgusting trailer with the EPIC : BAAHUBALI

    forget about BAAHUBALI this mahacrap is not even comparable with BAJIRAO MASTANI….

    So My humble Request to Mr. Ashutosh GOBARikar , stop using same formula again and again (LAGAAN + JODHA AKBAR) and try something innovative or better take retirement coz filmmaking is not u’r cup of tea EITHER coz u’r not S S RAJAMOULI nor BHANSALI and for our own Papa’s boy ‘beta, please stop doing same type of shit acting in every next crap and stop comparing yourself with THE LEGEND/ THE PERFECTIONIST Mr. Aamir Khan coz he has Megastardom + Better Script Sense + Perfection + Box Office Records and u alien doesn’t have even onew quality to stand infront of him so stop copying him ??!!!!!!!

  • The more number of times you watch the trailer … the more you like it….i guess its totally commercial and made for all the sections of audience ie plexes and SS
    if the action sequences have the emotional connect and those scnes are well executed ..then this can cause HAVOC at BO

  • RUSTOM was a small movie… that was supposed to come with out any pre release hype..and may be do well with positive WOM or vice versa.
    BUT ..MD made that movie big..gave it the much required pre release hype.
    Rustom is always in news now coz of calshing with MD.

  • Bang Bang Clash, Mohenjodaro Clash, Kaabil Clash, Clash is important Else Hrithikwill make History! This is the fear in All actors mind.

  • For haters

    The Use of Horses
    There have been complaints about use of horses in the trailer.

    Here’s a report by a renowned historian.

    According to SK Gupta the horse (Equus caballus) “was widely domesticated and used in India during the third millennium BC over most of the area covered by the Indus-Sarasvati (or Harappan) Civilisation. Archaeologically this is most significant since the evidence is widespread and not isolated.” . For example, the horses found in the early excavations at Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa do not come from secure levels and such `horse’ bones, in most cases, found their way into deposits through erosional cutting and refilling, disturbing the archaeological layers.

    There’s another theory that Horse was unknown to the people of Indus Valley and they were massacared by So, called Aryans who came mounting on horse back.

    So, it’s upto you which theory to believe.

    The Fair Skin Debate

    There have been complaints that the people of Mohenjodaro or rather the Indus Valley Civilization were of Dravidian Origin.So, they should have darker complexion.

    The ones who are complaining this are the same people who complain on getting stereotyped in films when they are shown people from South India are shown to be of dark complexion.So, this isn’t much of a debate in my opinion.( No Offence to anyone)

    The Use Of lipstick and waxed Skin

    I have seen a few complaints about use of lipstick by Chaani in the trailer.Well, there have been evidences that cosmetics were used by women in that era.Waxed Skin..Really ?? The heroine already has a waxed skin ..Will she grow hair..??

    The Film being a love story

    The makers are making a commercial Bollywood film not some documentary on Indus Valley Civilization.So, there has to be commercial elements.It can’t be entirely based on rise and fall of the civilization as suggested by some as the civilization spanned over 3000 years.It seems the film is based on the fag end of the civilization as we can see a flooding in the end of the trailer.There are theories that the civilization declined due to devastation caused by flooding of the Indus – Saraswati Valley which also resulted in drying of the Saraswati River later.
