Gowariker's follow-up to his Oscar nominated 'Lagaan' is a generally effective, entertaining and, at times, deeply moving 'journey of personal discovery'.
Gowariker's unforced shooting style is the same as in Lagaan, but this time is let down by a schematic, non-dramatic script.
Swades is most probably the best film of 2004.
To his credit, director Ashutosh Gowariker's movie is beautiful and you'll fall in love with the characters.
Swades is undoubtedly the No 1 movie of the year.
The slow-burning Swades requires a bit of patience from its viewers, but such an investment is a minimal expense when the payoff is richly rewarding.
What seems to be at first a predictable and clichéd Bollywood romance turns out to be a surprisingly sincere story full of heart and conviction that argues in favor of the importance and necessity of social changes (especially in India), offering a modern view on tradition and progress.
If SRK wasn't in this one, it would have done worse than what it did. SRK should stop blindly working with directors only because their last movie was a big HIT with Aamir. He must learn something about scripts too. Hope he realizes it before it's too late!!! BTW, I heard recently that he's being approached by Ghajini fame director A.R. Murugadoss for his next movie. If it's so, hope he doesn't sign it unless the script is convincing enough.
Here's an interesting movie that follows one man's journey back to his home country and to the one person from his past that holds great memories. Mohan Bhargav returns to India to find the elderly woman who took great care of him in his youth, one that he truly sees as a mother of his heart. Mohan takes time off to go in search for her, but comes to realize that there is more work to be done in the small village that he finds her living in. It is the general need of humanity that stirs an awakening within him, and he is compelled to do all that he possibly can. Shahrukh Khan stars. Worth seeing.
