Director: Ashutosh Gowariker
Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Pooja Hegde
Although set in the
historic Indus Valley civilisation, Gowariker’s Mohenjo Daro has very little to do with history. The plot is a typical Bollywood masala movie with a damsel in distress and over-the-top antics. If not taken too seriously, the movie can be enjoyed for its action sequences.
Director: Timur Bekmambetov
Cast: Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell
This movie is the fifth adaptation of the 1880 novel Ben-Hur:
A Tale of the Christ, by Lew Wallace. The film understandably drew comparisons with the classic 1959 version but it has not lived up to the hype. The lack of big stars, sloppy CGI and scarce marketing has given it a weak opening.
Director: Todd Phillips
Cast: Jonah Hill, Miles Teller
This comedy war movie
is based on true events related to arms deals in Afghanistan. The movie can be construed as a commentary on war. Jonah Hill has given a commendable performance as the protagonist Efraim Diveroli. But the movie also has the typical Hangover brand of humour that Philips is known for.
