Gunga Jumna (1961)

Dilip Kumar delivered perhaps his most formidable performance in his home production Gunga Jumna.

Incidentally, he also wrote the script of this rural drama about two brothers, Gunga and Jumna (Dilip Kumar and his brother Nasir Khan), who end up on opposite sides of the law, a theme which was later given an urban interpretation by Yash Chopra in Deewaar.

    Dilip Kumar's Gunga is a mischievous rustic hero who is forced to become an outlaw when the evil zamindar (Anwar Hussain) frames him. By the time his beloved Dhanno (Vyjayanthimala) persuades Gunga to surrender before his brother who is now a policeman, it is too late to turn back. Gunga has to pay for his sins with his and Dhanno's life.

    Dilip Kumar's singular presence looms large over Gunga Jumna. Particularly impressive is his fluent, effective use of
    the Bhojpuri dialect. Gunga Jumna also features some incredibly romantic scenes between Dilip Kumar and Vyjayanthimala.

    Incidentally, Dilip Kumar spent six months trying to get his film cleared by the Censor Board. After the harrowing experience of making and releasing his debut production, he vowed never to produce a film again.
