Ashutosh Gowariker is not a bad director. In fact, the dude is a bonafide Oscar-nominated filmmaker. It's not even that he's bad at doing period movies. His 2001 blockbuster Lagaan might be one of Indian cinema's greatest historical dramas. But you wouldn't believe any of that if you saw his latest release, Mohenjo Daro.
Forget the fact that it's historically accurate in pretty much no way, it's barely even accurate to the laws of gravity. And, unfortunately, there's nothing newcomer Pooja Hegde, or even a super-freakishly tanned Hrithik Roshan, can do to rescue it.
