Pooja Hegde to Star Opposite Prabhas in Her Next!?

Last week we reported that 'Mohenjo Daro' star Pooja Hegde has bagged the lead actress role in the next N.T.R - Trivikram film and it is safe to say that she has carved a niche for herself in the Tollywood cinema with many top producers queuing up for her schedule dates.

According to recent reports, it seems like Pooja has been offered yet another major role in a major film and to further blow your minds it is opposite to the Young Rebel Star, Prabhas. 

Prabhas is currently busy shooting 'Saaho' and is in discussions to sign another project with filmmaker Radhakrishna. Few sources say that the makers have locked Pooja Hegde and even during a recent media interaction, the actress has herself confirmed that she is working with Prabhas in her next.

Pooja Hegde to Star in Jr. NTR's Upcoming Film!

Launched late last year, the upcoming film starring Jr. NTR and Trivikram is all set to go on the floor very soon and there have been many speculations about the female lead of the film. Early reports suggested that Anu Emmanuel, who was last seen in Trivikram’s 'Agnyaathavaasi', is being considered along with Shraddha Kapoor and Pooja Hegde. But pushing all the rumors aside, the production house of the film confirmed on Twitter that Pooja Hegde ('DJ' and 'Oka Laila Kosam' fame) will be the lead actress.
Here's the tweet: “It is our absolute pleasure to welcome aboard @hegdepooja as the female lead opposite our young tiger #NTR @tarak9999. @MusicThaman will be scoring scintillating tunes for #PSVinod 's meticulous visuals. Shoot will commence from April, 2018.”

The actress also confirmed the news by replying, “Extremely happy to be on board ..looking forward to work with @tarak9999, Trivikram sir and the rest of the super talented team.. Gonna be great.”

This is the second project Pooja has bagged in the last few months. She will also be part of Mahesh Babu’s and Bellamkonda Sreenivas' upcoming films and also will be seen in a special number in 'Rangasthalam' which stars Ram Charan Tej and Samantha Akkineni.

“Be assured to see NTR in a very interesting character and the team has been heavily guarding information with regards to the role in the film. NTR will undergo an image makeover and the team is yet to zero in on a look.” revealed a source while speaking with a leading portal.

Mohenjo Daro - Movie Review

Verdict - "A bummer from the bygone era!"

Set in the ancient years of the Indus Valley Civilization, Mohenjo Daro is a fictional story about a small town merchant Sarman (Hrithik Roshan) who visits the city of Mohenjo Daro with which he contrives a strange magical connection in his dreams. Upon his arrival, he instantly falls in love with Chaani (Pooja Hegde) who belongs to a high-class community and continues to strike her attention every time. Finally, after learning about his emotional past which links to his parents, he decides to rebel against the evil leader Maham (Kabir Bedi) and elects to bring the city back to its previous glory. 

On the positive side, the film had a few things to offer especially the impressive background score by A.R. Rahman which blended into the story line superlatively. Also, the production design and the action and dance choreography felt authentic without being over-the-top. But, if we keep up a little attention to the detail, they're many little illustrative errors throughout the film that didn't qualify to the prehistoric culture. Yes, I'm partly referring about the expertly trimmed beards and the trendy hairstyles.

Moreover, my biggest concern about the film was the sluggish traditional storyline. It doesn't delve into anything new and keeps us jaded for the entire runtime. Two hours and thirty-five minutes of nothingness in addition to few lazily written characters made the film uninteresting to watch.

Hrithik Roshan's performance was one of the major perks of the entire film, his trait, mannerism and the appeal that he brought to the screen was downright amazing which is easily noticeable in every single scene. Pooja Hegde looked beautiful for the most part, but the inexperience in her acting ability was visible mostly during the emotional scenes. Kabir Bedi and Arunoday Singh were menacing as the bad guys, but the lack of character development affected their presence in the movie.

In the end, Mohenjo Daro didn't have a lot to offer except for Rahman's inspiring score and Hrithik's bona fide performance. The story would've been a lot more unorthodox other than being generic similar to many other historic films.

My Rating - 2.5/5
Grade - C+ (It deserves your attention for a while)
