Hrithik pleasantly surprised by good reviews for ‘Mohenjo Daro’

Actor Hrithik Roshan is “pleasantly surprised” by the positive reviews for epic adventure-romance “Mohenjo Daro”. He says it was encouraging.

“I am pleasantly surprised by the positive reviews for ‘Mohenjo Daro’. It is encouraging that we have received better reviews than most were expecting,” Hrithik said in a statement.

Directed by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker, the film marks debut of Pooja Hegde and is produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Sunita Gowariker.

The film brings an epic adventure-romance story on the silver screen. It is set in the city of Mohenjo Daro in the era of the Indus Valley civilisation which dates back to 2,600 BC.

The movie was released on Friday alongside Akshay Kumar-starrer “Rustom”. According to the IANS review by Troy Ribeiro, “Mohenjo Daro” is a magnum opus and lights up the screen but lacks crisp storytelling.
