The trailer of Mohenjo Daro was criticised by the audience for not looking authentic enough. Set in the ancient Indus Valley, parts of the film seem more suited to Egypt or the Middle East.

But the lead actor of the movie, Hrithik Roshan says that more than the facts, the movie should be entertaining. "There are only theories. There's no recorded proof, it's pre-history. There is no record of whether it is accurate or whether it is not accurate, there are just theories which have been floated by historians. The director has had to pick one theory and construct this film based on that,'' he told a leading news channel.
Hrithik Roshan added, ''What's important is how uplifting, not edifying, the 2.5 hours spent at the cinema are, If the movie is entertaining, if you have not negated a historical event or falsified an event that was relevant to what is recorded as history, then what remains is how entertained you get in a movie, that's what lasts."
We bring to you the audiences' view based on the live responses from the cinema halls, so that you can decide whether Mohenjo Daro is a full paisa wasool movie or just a time pass.
