Ganga Jamuna, 1961

Dramatic confrontations and moral conflicts run wildly through the rustic, need we add, photogenic journey of Ganga Jamuna's bitter ironies and hostile circumstances.

Director Nitin Bose conveys a mix of palpable intensity and intrinsic chemistry through his charismatic leading players, Dilip Kumar, Nasir Khan and Vyjyanthimala in this Technicolor tale of two warring brothers on the other side of law.

Its massive success, not just in terms of business, but also vivid story-telling, endearing camaraderie, uncompromising technique as well as the concept of ideology at odds, has visibly influenced major motion pictures over the years, rural or contemporary backdrop, notwithstanding.
