Actor Hrithik Roshan on Monday shared the trailer of his upcoming historical drama Mohenjo Daro on his Twitter profile. “Welcome to the medieval world of Mohenjo Daro,” he tweeted.
The attire of Hrithik’s character Sarman in the Ashutosh Gowariker-directed film might remind viewers of superstar Aamir Khan’s character Bhuvan from Gowariker’s award-winning film Lagaan while it might not look fresh as people have already seen it due to the numerous pictures from the shoot already leaked.
The trailer sees Hrithik’s character based in some other location, but having the tremendous urge to visit the place called Mohenjo Daro as he always feels a certain connection with the place which feels familiar. Though his character looks like a commoner, he falls in love with the character of debutant Pooja Hegde, who is a princess-like girl belonging to the elite class and they share a kiss.
The characters of Arunoday Singh and Kabir Bedi came across as the baddies. Hrithik is seen in some intense action sequences which can seem akin to those in films like Gladiator with battles in a large arena where people from the whole village form the audience.
The action is with swords, knives and other such equipment with Hrithik facing giant men, horses, crocodiles and floods. One of the best dialogues as seen in the trailer is Hrithik’s character telling Kabir Bedi’s character is that the difference them is “you want to rule over Mohenjo Daro but I want to serve it”.
