Set in modern day India, Swades is a film that tackles the issues facing the citizens of this nation on a grass roots level, says the Swades website. To add more, what begins as a simple mission prompted by nostalgia and affection turns into a journey into the heartland of rural India, both literally and metaphorically. The site is designed intuitively and loaded with tons of wallpapers and stills. This pic of A R Rahman with Ashutosh and Javed Aktar seemed interesting.
The first line of the site reads, From the Writer & Director of the Academy Award Nominated ‘Lagaan’. Though I have reservations about sending Indian movies to the Oscars, this one was quite heartening to see.
