Critic Reviews for Swades
Gowariker's unforced shooting style is the same as in Lagaan, but this time is let down by a schematic, non-dramatic script.
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.
Audience Reviews for Swades
What at first seems to be a predictable, clichéd Bollywood romance turns out to be a surprisingly honest 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.
Swades is an indian movie in the general definition, same formula, a girl, a guy, girl opposes the guy, guy understands was wrong about something, he becomes a hero and everybody is happy.
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.
