    Swades is a good film and the writer-director Ashutosh Gowarikar does a handy job of somehow making a long film not only watchable but also endearing. An Indian scientist returns back home and rediscovers his roots- this is the basic synopsis but the film is a lot more nuanced and features some good performances. The lead actor Shah Rukh Khan is a big star in India but here he plays it subtle which is what the performance desires. Gayatri Joshi doesn't have much to do but she is ravishing. This is one of the rare Bollywood films that makes one sit and ponder.(Great Bollywood film worth a watch).

    An simple yet honest love story portrayed with the tinge of patriortism. Delightful music score by A R Rahman adds an extra sweetness to the film.

    Well thought out script and direction. Everything flows with the core idea of Indian values. A very entertaining and heart felt patriotic movie.

    Fairly typical Bollywood film, way too long, over-hyped, inappropriate dancing about, ineffective humour and it attempts to cover as many genres as it possibly can, as they always seem to do. This is not as bad as some I have seen, it doesn't have Amir Kahn in for a start, but it's still pretty cheesy and hard work to get through.

    95% Viewed this on 24/10/15 Swades has turned out to be a haunting experience for me and if you ask me it's got nothing at that level to make one feel, but may be this is personal, but still. I find this to be on par or even better than Lagaan. It's well acted and is a well balanced drama even though a few songs seems unnecessary. I also feel extremely attracted towards lead actress Gayathri Joshi. Shahrukh Khan gives another great performance. The film must be praised for depicting India in a realistic manner without an over flow of unnecessary patriotism. Also the protagonists' view of India and the reasons for it's lack of growth and accurate and never been shown so vividly in any film before.

    It has been a decade since Swades was released in India and here we are still talking about it, that just shows how ground-breaking this movie is and how it made its place in one of the best Hindi movies of all-time. Mohan Bharghav, a scientist in NASA, when comes back to India to take his nanny to America, he discovers where he truly belongs. Director, Ashutosh Gowarikar's patriotism and dedication towards the country can be clearly seen in this movie. The way he directed this movie is just outstanding. Every emotion, every theme is handled with perfection. Shah Rukh Khan is the heart of the movie. His acting is genuine and the performances like this are the reason why he is regarded as one of the greatest actors this country ever had. Swades is a celebration of a different kind of patriotism, which is more realistic, more believable and holds strong even today.

    A perfect cult classic encompassing the soul of India in a village remote to internet and electricity. Ashutosh Gowariker just delivers patriotism even through silence, such is his expertise in invoking the right doctrines in the right scenes which move every Indian emotionally. Swades is beyond the basic definition of movie, it is a combination of strong perception on society with smooth presentation through entertainment. The screenplay is so precisely written being successful in a constant development of emotional, romantic and revolutionary perspectives parallely ,yet completely. Cinematography sublimely has a purity in itself creating the native Indian environment effectively. A R Rahman's music is the heartbeat of the movie, such a great re-recording is rarely seen which not only sounds good but tells the story through sound.The character of Mohan Bhargava is so well written and weaved into the script that one can say that Swades is "Gandhi"s equal and ashutosh equals Richard Attenborough.
