Storyline

Widower Hemant Rastogi lives in scenic Mahabaleshwar, seemingly alone. One night he has a heart attack and passes away. When the Police search his residence, they find a young man in the basement of the house, a man whose eyes are very sensitive to any kind of light, whose name is Tejas, the only son of Hemant, who has been sheltered, and has never stepped out. The Police ask Purva Rana of P.R. Institute, that rehabilitates young men who have taken to crime, to look after Tejas, whose life has been influenced by books that his dad provided for him. Tejas proves that he has power of mind over matter, and thus proves to be a misfit in the institute, resulting in the near fatal accident of a security guard, Singh, and the death of a fellow student, John. But Tejas redeems himself in the eyes of Purva's wealthy dad, Pushkar, when he is able to wake his wife, Gayetri Rana from a coma-like condition. It looks like Tejas has wormed his way into the Rana household, but this is short lived as ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Why???
11 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Why??? Why do Bollywood directors have to copy Hollywood when they are doing a project which is different from any typical Bollywood film, this movie is just another example of how Bollywood can make a good Hollywood film not only look bad but rip off totally.

I cannot remember ever seeing a Bollywood remake of a Hollywood film and actually make it enjoyable rather than annoying, this movie is just another one to add to the list of unoriginal Bollywood films and another director/writer to add to the list of unoriginality. there are many bad Bollywood films out there but when it comes down to movies like this it really is embarrassing to the industry that they even got the budget to make the movie.

In the industry today there are only two directors which have made Bollywood proud and these two directors are Ashutosh Gowariker and Sanjay Leela Bhansali who are not only great directors but also great writers. The director and writers really need to take notes from these two directors.

Overall I wont really recommend this movie to anyone even though it may have the best special effects for a Bollywood movie.

p.s. I wont be surprised if the director/writers try making there own version of Swades after reading this comment.
