Upon his arrival he is left mesmerized by the majesty, beauty and grandeur of the city, and takes up the job of a peasant. Then one day, he ends up saving the life of Princess Channi, who is revered by the entire city as she is considered to symbolize the grace and blessing of River Goddess, Sindhu Ma. As Sarman gives up his hidden agenda in order to win the love of Channi, he comes across the evil and murderous general Maham (Kabir Bedi) and his wicked son Munja (Arunoday Singh). The two conspire to take control of Mohenjo Daro, with only Sarman capable of foiling their nefarious plan.

Kabir Bedi and Arunoday Sigh do justice to their characters in this movie which depicts the ancient city in a perfect manner. The music is good and hummable with some great lyrics.
