i saw swades yesterday.....such a brave movie....really. ashutosh wud have created some movie like lagaan where it had hot subject like cricket which every1 likes...but in this movie he showed indian poverty...which ppl kinda ignore and do hesitate to go and watch it and many movie have tried to show but havent succeeded in attracting audiences....yes, there were mixed reactions...but i and my pals found it extremely amazing movie...every1 knows (atleast me!!) its such a big ecstasy and satisfaction living in our own home, how warm it feels getting a hug frm ya grandma, smell of indian soil, the sense of belonging....sometimes which u cannot find or feel outside india...
ashutosh wud have created a another movie wid blast but he chose such a topic which ppl kinda ignore....very very brave.
most touching scene i found was when mohan (shahrukh khan)...who only drinks mineral water wherever he goes...watches a small poor kid selling water for 25 paises on a railway station where really he do never even thought of visiting in this life, goes further and takes the water and drinks it...and gives the kid his money. very well shot...when mohan(shahrukh) cries in desperation coz he isn't able to forget all the magic moment he had in india back in america ...u understand wat he is going through.
go ashutosh go....this movie reminds me of virasaat (priyadarshan's movie who directed gr8 movies like hera pheri)....similar kinda movie....where he (anil kapoor) who is frm mumbai compromises by trying to forget his dream of becoming a big man...and feels his responsibility is to protect his village coz its his home and ppl here need him.
the sceneries shown in swades r wonderful....i always knew india was so beautiful.
gayatri joshi is simply amazing ...really beautiful woman. someone whom u can take home.
Lagaan was a legend and u cannot compare this movie wid dat.
swades full of emotions and also humurous at times...makes it more watchable.
loved it. loved it!
