Swades again

One more interesting observation about the movie I got from MTV Chito-chat yesterday...Shah Rukh's costumes in the movie! They are all pretty simple, no flashy stuff...no leather jackets and leather pants, no suits, no tight t-shirts and jeans, no lavish wedding costumes...all this inspite of him being a US-returned guy...
Our man wears simple full sleeve shirts, an ocassional decent blue jeans, even a dhoti in some scenes...guess tht goes in very well with his image in the movie, a man who loves his homeland and does not change his basic lifestyle much even though the land he lives in is verry different...
And the more interesting part was tht the costumes were designed by Bhanu Athaiya - the woman who brought home India's first Oscar, way back in 1982! incidentally she also did the work in Ashutosh's previous work Lagaan...
Swades rox i say...

BTW all his shirts in Swades were designer wear from L.M Lewis. Very fashinable indeed and whoever the costume designer was, superb taste indeed. (leather jackets are so not US)
