The trailer for Ashutosh Gowariker's upcoming period drama Mohenjo Daro was released on Monday evening.

Starring Hrithik Roshan and actor-model Pooja Hegde, making her Hindi film debut, the three-and-a-half-minute trailer received mixed reactions on social media.

While many praised the scale and production values of the film, set in 2016 BC during the times of the Indus Valley Civilisation, there were also several who were put off by the film's Bollywood-ised depiction of historical times and the numerous inaccuracies in terms of detailing, which were also pointed out when its posters released last week.

Twitter users fumed over how the film seems to ignore basic historical facts.

Where there are tweets, jokes are sure to follow.

There were a few brickbrats for Roshan, who seems to have mistaken the art of acting for the art of face-quivering.

Also, despite the film's mega-expensive budget (a rumoured Rs 200 crore), many have been left unimpressed by the production design and somewhat tacky visual effects.


Mohenjo Daro is slated to release in theatres on August 12. Watch the trailer above.
