All of us remember Swades to be a movie that pushed us to introspect and made us fall in love with our country just a little bit more.
And, why not? Ashutosh Gowariker had done a fine job making this gem of a movie. But recently, a Twitter user pointed out that the movie isn't really that perfect.
In a tweet, he showed that Mohan Bharghav, a project manager at NASA actually made a calculation mistake.

He also mentioned that he saw the scene at least 15 times to come to this conclusion.

How could a person who is supposed to be working at NASA while handling complex operations make a mistake like this?
As it turns out, this was not the case at all. A fan schooled the comedian by breaking down the whole calculation for him and highlighting that there's a mistake in the subtitle and not the movie.
He actually added everything and did not just simply multiply it. So, the calculation would be something like-
3 Maths books for ₹17= 221
22 Language books ₹12= 264
Geography books for ₹19= 152
8 notebooks for ₹113
The grand total would be 221+264+152+113 = 750
And, this is what Twitter had to say about it.
The problem here is with the subtitles. He did not multiply 8 x 113. He added the price of 8 notebooks to his previously added score of 113.— Anu (@futurezest) July 22, 2021
Na bhai! See the full video. I remember because I did this jab movie aayi thi tabhi calculation kiya hai wo end mein 637 + 113 (for 8 notebooks) = 750 aesa hai!— Aye Himanसू ® (@4mlvodka) July 22, 2021
Well, numbers never lie.
