Sarman had lost his parents at an early age and raised by his Kaaka and Kaaki who always stopped him from visiting MohenjoDaro. One fine day, he finally reaches Mohenjo Daro to do some trade. He finds that the people there are suffering from the atrocities of the king Maham (Kabir Bedi). Also, he falls in love with Chaani (Pooja Hegde), who is considered as a symbol of Sindhu Maa and is looked upon divinely. Chaanu, however is engaged to Maham’s son Moonja (Arunoday Singh). Sarman’s intolerance for injustice and love for Chaani brings him into loggerheads with the king and prince. The rest of the film is about what wrath he faces and how he stands for the people.

Mohenjo Daro Analysis

Mohenjo Daro Movie Review and Ratings

The movie is not really about Mohenjo Daro civilization but a story set in the backdrop of it. The story is very simple and a plot that has been witnessed lot of times before. The plot of Tollywood blockbuster ‘Bahubali’ is similar. However, director Ashutosh made the movie look engaging by setting it in an era and place where we are totally unfamiliar. He takes us to the world and makes us witness the proceedings without making it mundane anywhere.


Hrithik is fighting fit in Mohenjo Daro as Sarman He conveys simplicity and strength, passion and purity with golden-locked ease. Pooja Hedge appears drab and in a role that largely features feathers and flashes of leg. Overall Hrithik is the highlight of movie.
