Steering away from the usual jingoism often depicted in Bollywood patriotic films, Ashutosh Gowarikar's Swades invokes the feeling of love for one's country by telling the story of an India-born NASA scientist who returns to his country to find his roots.

The movie takes a viewer through the heartland of rural India, revealing its beauty and the diversity of its people. A part of the movie was also shot inside the NASA research center at the Launch Pad 39A of the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.



The film stars Shah Rukh Khan , newcomer Gayatri Joshi , Kishori Ballal , Makrand Deshpande and a good number of other actors. Music for the film is given by A R Rahman .

The film tells the story of Mohan Bhargava (Shahrukh), a bright, young, India-born scientist working in NASA as the project manager on a rainfall monitoring satellite. Mohan makes journey to his motherland India in order to meet his nanny.

For Mohan, what begins as a nostalgic trip soon turns into a journey filled with revelations as he travels into the heartland of rural India, meeting people and seeing in reality the country he had only imagined in his dreams.

He discovers that although people are poor and ignorant, but still they carry immense riches in their hearts. Mohan vows to do everything he can to bring awareness among people and inspire them to uplift themselves.

Movie's director Ashutosh Gowarikar has said the in Swades people will get to see Shahrukh the actor and not Shahrukh the star.

The movie will hit the theatres on December 17.
