Ganga Jamuna is a classic Hindi film released in 1961, directed by Nitin Bose and starring the legendary Dilip Kumar and Vyjayanthimala in the lead roles, along with Nasir Khan in a supporting role. The film is a drama with a romantic angle and explores the themes of sibling rivalry, courage, and sacrifice. The story revolves around two brothers named Ganga (Dilip Kumar) and Jamuna (Nasir Khan) who grow up in a small village with their mother, who works as a cook for the local zamindar. Ganga is the elder of the two and is kind-hearted and responsible, whereas Jamuna is impulsive and hot-headed.

As they grow older, Ganga becomes the trusted aide of the zamindar, while Jamuna becomes a bandit and starts looting the villages. Ganga tries to reform Jamuna and convince him to give up his criminal ways, but to no avail. This leads to a bitter rivalry between the two brothers, which intensifies when Ganga falls in love with Dhanno (Vyjayanthimala), a young girl from the village.

The conflict between the brothers comes to a head when a local moneylender tries to usurp the land of the villagers. Ganga, with the help of the zamindar, tries to protect the villagers and their land, while Jamuna sides with the moneylender and becomes his lieutenant.

The final showdown between Ganga and Jamuna is a gripping one, with each brother trying to outdo the other in courage and skill. The film ends on a tragic note, with both brothers realizing the futility of their rivalry and the sacrifices they have made.
