Hrithik's Mohenjo Daro Shredded by Twitter For Not Looking Authentic

A still from Mohenjo Daro.

Highlights

  • Tweets ridiculing the trailer of Mohenjo Daro have flooded social media
  • Mohenjo Daro casts Hrithik, Pooja Hegde and Kabir Bedi in pivotal roles
  • Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, Mohenjo Daro will release on August 12
It would be safe to say that Mohenjo Daro is a crucial film for both its star Hrithik Roshan, who hasn't had a film out since 2014's Bang Bang, and its director Ashutosh Gowariker, whose last movie was 2010's poorly-received Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey. But they might have to brace themselves for it seems that the trailer, released on Monday, hasn't impressed everyone wholesale.
Mr Gowariker, long practiced at making period pieces, did a fine job with Lagaan and Jodhaa Akbar - he appears to have faltered somewhat with Mohenjo Daro, set in the Indus Valley Civilisation in the year 2016 BC. Despite consulting a team of archaeologists, it's instantly clear from the trailer that anyone in search of an authentic depiction of life in an ancient world should not be expecting to see it in this film. Twitter, for one, is not.
Tweets ridiculing the trailer of Mohenjo Daro have flooded social media. Some are pointing out inaccuracies, others are commenting on how like a mashup of Baahubali it seems:
