Saw Swades again...this movie never fails to mesmerize me and makes me all teary-eyed
Everytime I see this movie...I feel like I notice new things...like the small details that Gowarikar had paid attention to...this movie is Gowarikar and SRK's bet work till date. I absolutely cannot believe that SRK didn't get a national award for this performance and f**king Saif Ali khan got it for Hum Tum...W*F was that...this thing will piss me off for life ughhh
This also happens to be my family's favourite movie...and the NRI element just makes it more relatable for my whole family. Whenever I watch this movie it makes me all sad as to which direction is India going and tells me that motherland needs all its children to progress (I am getting too patriotic I know
It makes me leave everything and run back to India and help the country in anyway possible...but I guess I am not as strong as SRK's character Mohan & my life isn't a movie.
Lastly special kudos to UTV for producing a movie like this and shout out to AR Rahman for that marvellous music...I mean this movie wouldn't have been what it is without the BGM.
Anyone who hasn't seen this movie...please do yourself a favour and watch it
This one gets 5/5 all the way
May I just add that this is the best BGM ever used in Indian cinema
Absolutely LOVE Swades! Easily my Top 3 favorite movie of all time. Every single time I watch it I cant help but feel emotions of joy, happiness, sadness, uneasiness, guilt and helplessness all wrapped in one.
I wish I could truly go back to India one day and help the country progress any way that I can, but as youve said Im also not as strong as Mohan.
If Saif had ANY self respect he'd hand that Best Actor National Award to SRK and kiss his feet for taking it from him. I dont respect National Award for THIS stupidity of theirs!
Marvelous job by everyone in the film! This is one Ashutosh film that I could watch again and again without getting bored even a bit.
Lagaan had me a bit bored in the beginning, Whats Your Raashee throughout the end and Jodhaa Akbar throughout the entire movie
