    Swades rating: 8 out of 10

    By Making things happen :) (15 Jun 2008)

    not many movies in our entertaiment obsessed country try to rope in a high value superstar to deliver a socio-economical message without being far too stretched. The fate of such movies are always the inevitable at the box-office, but for a movie lover it's wonderful and touching. SRK is sober--w/o his usual mannerism--and hits all the right chords :) » read more

    One of the rare performances delivered by Shahrukh - where he is more Mohan (the protagonist) than SRK!
    I like this one for Shahrukh's acting, the story and the message delivery - all bundled very well! » read more

    I think this is one of the ebst performances of SRK. Not his ususal typical role, he actually came out of the SRK clamshell, and showed glimpses of what good actor he really is. The movie touches the right bases to justify its nomenclature, and the sense of self achievement has been very well distributed among common people.
    Sacrifice is not always an easy thing. But sometimes indeed "janmabhumi" is larger than anything else in our life. We want to die where we were born.
    From a technical standpoint also the movie is really sound. Ashutosh Gowarikar movies are ... » read more

    Swades is simply one of those rare gems that once you see them you know they're special, and realise there is so much depth to their beauty.

    Ashutosh Gowariker clearly demonstrates once again that he is a director in control of his art, and message that he wishes to portray in this art form. His genius here was to choose an A-list actor who would not only do justice to the central character, but also give the kind of exposure an important film like this commands. In my opinion Shah Rukh Khan delivers a career best performance in his role as 'Mohan'. He delivers ... » read more

    Swades: We, the People

    Swades rating: 10 out of 10

    By Kaushik Dasari(27 May 2010)

    Swades is a movie which brings the social problems faced in India to light and definitely makes one to ponder about them. Though the ongoings get repetative at places, it is a movie which has its heart at the right place.

    In a nutshell, Swades is about a young scientist, Mohan Bhargava (Played superbly by Shahrukh Khan), who works at NASA. He visits India inorder to take his childhood nanny, Kaveri Amma (Played by adorable Kishori Ballal) along with him to the US and in doing so, he eventually finds his true roots in the so called "Swades" (Homeland).

    The movie touched a chord

    Swades rating: 10 out of 10

    By Suchita Mukherjee(04 Apr 2010)

    This movie is so sensitive and realistically portrayed that I think it touches a chord in anyone who lives abroad or has family abroad. SRK as the NRI working in NASA missing something in his life although he has all the material comforts has given one of the best performances of his career. Gayatri Joshi as the girl who doesn't want her nanny to leave her to go live with SRK in the US, is also very natural and believable. The old nanny torn between her love for SRK and Gayatri has given a heart warming performance. The Ek tara and Rahi chala chal songs are very catchy ... » read more

    Swades rating: 8 out of 10

    By Mrs Chandra Banerjee(15 Mar 2009)

    To me this is probably the best movie made by Ashutosh the director. India is such a huge country with such diversified problems that we find what to sort out first! It is the poverty and lack of education that the countrymen suffer most. Our political band should be ashamed of their inability to meet up these problems.
    The film has been set up in a very down to earth manner , it has taken help of the village gathering where the people get entertainment at the same time education to become proper countrymen. Very recently ther is an effort to introduce gram sabha ... » read more

    "HAIL MY MOTHERLAND"

    Well.. how to describe a film which is so so very dear to my heart? It brings me HOME each time.. every time.. and it beckons my yearning spirit to pour out my sincere emotions and true love for it.........
    SRK- though am NOT an avid lover of all your films, NO ONE could have ever captured the soul of Mohan Bhargav..the way you did! I mean it. So a total of 10/10. Mohan, you have done it. You triumph.. Director Ashutosh Gowarikar coupled with the story writer do an excellent job and A.R. Rahman literally pours his heart in this soul stirring ... » read more
