This decade, Gullane could put in a good claim to be the most successful and biggest movie production house in Brazil. Headed by brothers Fabiano and Ciao Gullane, it has 13 films in development or production. In 2015, Gullane produced Brazil’s biggest recent international arthouse hit – Sundance winner “The Second Mother.” From 2012, three instalments of the Gullane-produced “Till Luck Do Us Part” have earned a combined $46.6 million, becoming Brazil’s biggest comedy movie franchise of all time.
Even so, Gullane like all of Brazil’s movie industry, has been hit by the country’s dramatic economic downturn which has withered profits, hence company and high-net individuals’ ability to take advantage of tax deductions to invest in the local film industry.

In recent years, the main reason to see a Hrithik Roshan movie was to bask in the star’s magnificence. The standard description, “Greek God,” is an entirely accurate assessment of Roshan’s celestial beauty. Plus he can dance. So it may seem a little churlish to complain that “Mohenjo Daro” takes a similar trajectory to his superhero franchise “Krrish,” without the goofy humor: a simple man given to wearing tight-fitting shirts (or no shirt at all) goes from childish naïveté to hero status and saves the girl, or the city, or the world. Here he saves a civilization, the Bronze Age Indus Valley society known as Mohenjo-daro, thanks to his brawn and strength of character. Expectedly epic though disappointingly weak in production numbers (there are only two major dance sequences), the film re-teams director Ashutosh Gowariker, composer A.R. Rahman and Roshan for the first time since “Jodhaa Akbar,” a better film by far. »
