Swades (Hindi स्वदेस, Urdu: سودیس) - We, the people (2004) is an Indian film written, produced and directed by Ashutosh Gowariker. This Bollywood film stars Shah Rukh Khan and film newcomer Gayatri Joshi. Music is by A. R. Rahman, lyrics by Javed Akhtar and costume design by Bhanu Athaiya. Swades was also released in Tamil as Desam (தேசம்). This film is alleged to be a remake of the Kannada film Chigurida Kanasu, directed by T.S.Nagabharana, which was based on a novel of the same name by Shivaram Karanth

Tagline : "We, the people."



A NASA project manager, Mohan Bhargava (played by Shah Rukh Khan) is a Non-Residential Indian NRI who misses his home nation, India. He decides to come home to find his former nanny, Kaveriamma, (played by Kishori Ballal) and wishes to take her back with him to the States. In his quest to find his nanny, Mohan encounters a childhood friend, Gita (played by Gayatri Joshi), who teaches primary school in a rural village in India. As is usual in romances, they clash initially but eventually fall in love.

The film contrasts the high-tech world of NASA in the USA and the colorful world of remote villages in developing India, while at the same time exploring the nature of 'home'. Mohan sees the best of India, as well as the worst: the poverty, the prevailing caste system and lack of education. The course of his life changes when he decides to chip in and do whatever he can for his nation.
