Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hain is a 2000 Bollywood film directed by Mahesh Manjrekar and starring Govinda in the lead role, along with Sonali Bendre and Rinke Khanna. The movie is a family drama that explores the theme of cultural identity and the values of rural and urban life. The story of Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hain revolves around Gangaram (Govinda), a simpleton from a village in Bihar who is married to a city girl named Kaveri (Sonali Bendre). Although Gangaram's father (played by Shivaji Satam) is proud of his son's education and intelligence, he is concerned that his son may lose touch with his roots and culture by marrying a city girl.

After the wedding, Kaveri moves to the village with Gangaram where she struggles to adjust to a new way of life. She encounters cultural differences and struggles to find acceptance from the village women. Gangaram, on the other hand, faces challenges at his job in the city due to his rural background.

As the story unfolds, the couple tries to find a balance between their rural and urban identities. Amidst this, they also face challenges from Kaveri's brother and sister-in-law (played by Shakti Kapoor and Himani Shivpuri), who despise Gangaram and his family due to their rural origins. They plot to separate the couple and bewilder Gangaram's father who is preparing for the wedding of his second son.

The movie highlights the importance of cultural harmony and how unity in diversity can help overcome all adversities. The music of the movie is also noteworthy, with songs like "Jeeta Tha Jiske Liye" and "Chal Jhooti" becoming popular with the masses.

The performances by the cast, particularly Govinda, are laudable. Govinda, who is often known for his comic roles, portrays the character of Gangaram with great sincerity and depth. He successfully conveys the inner conflict of a man torn between his identity and aspirations.

Sonali Bendre, too, delivers a remarkable performance as Kaveri, and her chemistry with Govinda is palpable. Rinke Khanna, who plays Gangaram's sister, adds the necessary comic relief to the story without overshadowing the overarching message of the movie.

Overall, Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hain is a heartwarming tale that emphasizes the values of unity, respect, and love for one's roots. It is a must-watch for those who enjoy family dramas and movies that explore cultural themes.
