Swades (2004)

A quote from Gandhi sets the tone for the kind of life-journey that not everyone is brave enough to take, and sadly the people that do manage it don’t always pause long enough to properly look around.
SRK is a NASA scientist with an important job, a large apartment and a salary to match. His life is lacking just one thing and whilst striving to acquire it he encounters a way of life that he'd all but forgotten existed.
It showcases the natural beauty of India and the potential that exists inside of all of us, nestled in the human heart. Even though it’s predictable in all the usual places, films like Swades can change the people who watch them.
Music is by A. R. Rahman and is of his usual standard of excellence.
