Swades (2004)

This Shahrukh Khan starrer and Ashutosh Gowariker directed movie can be listed among those few ones which got recognition as a masterpiece or were appreciated hugely after a few years of their release. It is one of those good movies which were not accepted by the viewers when it was first introduced, but with the growing times became immensely popular in the cinema world for its innovative subject and content.


The story revolves around a successful NASA engineer who decides to quit his job and moves back to his motherland, India, amused by the country, its simplicity and its loving people. The ethnic feel of the movie is captivating and impressive. Though at some places you may find it cliché, but on the whole it is a fine family watch with some mesmerizing songs from the maestro, A. R. Rahman.


This was Ashutosh Gowariker’s next movie after the blockbuster “Lagaan”. Thought it was not received well by the viewers initially but now it is rightly rated among the best works of Shahrukh, Ashutosh & Rahman. A must watch if you want to see a decent and earthy movie about India, its people and theri love for their own country.
