Swades...We the people


Let me start this post by wishing all of you a very Happy Independence Day.

Ok so what was special today for me...
I know today is Independence day(evn if precisely 30 minutes are left for the clock to tick 12 hrs and 16th August)

I thought of seeing Swades...We the people today as it was coming on star gold.normally i dont watch movies on cable coz of the poor quality of cd.but since the movie was coming on star gold i thot of giving it a try.i wanted to see this movie so thought this was a golden opportunity.

the movie started and i was engrossed in it from the beginning.i think the way Ashutosh Govrikar(this correct spelling is courtesy Google) has presented this movie is really commendable.The Lagaan magic is present in this movie too.

what i really liked was the real fire in the belly of shahrukh khan to do sumthing for the people.
and i think one of the best scenes was when shahrukh khan produced electricity and a bulb lights up in front of an old lady.this movie actually depicted whether we have a government ruling over us but finally this is a democratic government so even we have a share of our activities.

apart from these emotions there were some other kind of emotions too in the movie which r omnipresent in almost all movies.emotions of luv.but i cud clearly see the purity of luv in this movie.no masala numbers no kisses just pure love.and the way this love developed from a small seedling to a full blossomed flower was so exciting to watch.the girl(Geeta) in this movie is lovely to watch.it was so good to watch when she admitted that she has started loving shahrukh.and the way she did was it seemed totally impromptu.the movie clearly shows a saree clad girl can be much more appealing than a girl in short skirt.

i recommend this movie to all of u.u can visit swades for some glimpses.

Star gold has started a project star gold in which if u sms swades to 7827 they would deduct rs 10 from ur account and then star gold itself would also contribute same amount for welfare(bringing electricity) for some poor state.and i guess we shell out our money on snacks and cold drinks so easily then what is stopping us to just sms a single message.

Before wrapping up this post i would like to mention that the emotions shown in the movie are easier enacted in reel life than real life.and this comment includes me you and almost everyone else including our politicians.

I would also like to add that i still dont knw how much patriotic im or how much i want to do for others but one thing is sure...i really liked this movie.

I cudn't watch is completely, but did watch it in parts thought :P
It was really nice., a non commercial masala movie., The mssg of 'helping the nation begins by helping the ppl around you., ur neighbourhood or town'., that was very good. Makes me wanna do somethin like that too, when I have the chance to do that,. u bet I'm goin to leave no stone unturned..,

I think with our level of education, we can certainly have an impact and change things for better in our country. This is one thing I'm really passionate about.

Belated Happy Independence Day. Saare Jahaan se Accha Hindustan Hamara.

The most poignant scene for me in this movie was the scene where a small boy sells water to SRK for 4 annas. The thought just pierced my heart.

@Metal : the water selling scene was quite touching.this movie really brings out the emotions in u.
for me the most touching scene was when th old lady was waiting for the electricity to come and the way her eyes sparkled when the bulb glowed was very emotional.
