The Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hain Movie Review

Manjrekar's 'Ganga' fails to pulsate
By N K Deoshi
Rating: 2/5

See Govinda as a rustic bumpkin clad in crisp partly transparent dhoti and a dehati turban, swooning the village belle Sonali Bendre and admonishing the morally bankrupt newfound city relations in Mahesh Manjrekar's second consecutive release after Astitva--Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rahta Hai.

The film also casts Reema Lagoo, Shakti Kapoor, Shivaji Satam, Kishore Nandlaskar, and has Rinke Khanna in a cameo appearance.

Although the film's producers Ayesha and Jackie Shroff claim that the film is 'different' Jis Desh Mein.. ends up as yet another inconsequential movie in the interminable list of Chi Chi entertainers.

Ganga (Govinda) is a jovial good-natured village bumpkin living in the idyllic surroundings with his pampering maa (Reema Lagoo) and a rather stern taat (Shivaji Satam). He spends his time herding the animals and cavorting around with other rustic lads and gaon ki goris. He knows nothing of the world beyond his village.

Sawani (Sonali Bendre) the cute and vivacious village belle loves Ganga for his simplicity and innocence. But the na´ve Ganga knows little of the four-letter word and takes his time to show his love to Sawani.

The story takes a swift turn when Ganga discovers that he is the son of a rich business tycoon (Shakti Kapoor) who abandoned him when he was just a toddler in care of his maa and taat who fostered him in loco parentis. Ganga goes to city to reunite with his parents. In the city he is a misfit, unable to comprehend the morals, values and lifestyles of people.

He is incredulously surprised to see his vanity struck bhabi always covered with layers of make-up, dressed in designer see-through dresses. Nor can he understand the morality of his brother who goes seeking absolution in another woman's boudoir. The family members in their turn think of Ganga as an illiterate, uncivilized buffoon who before anything needs to be shown the outdoor.

But Ganga is not the one to lie down under. He stands on his dignity and somehow muddles through all difficulties in teaching his bhabi and brother a lesson.

Moreover his newfound parents want Ganga to catch up with time and jilt his village girlfriend Sawani and marry rich and pampered city girl Tina (Rinke Khanna). Now the MTV infested, skimpily clad Tina doesn't take to Ganga's fancy. To respect to his parents wishes he gets engaged but later on returns to his village where his heart lies and where he has always belonged.

While Mahesh Manjrekar is too good with gritty crime stories, he does not seem to have knack for comedy. A glossy film like this one is not meant for realistic entertainer like him. At times Govinda does evoke good laughter with his sleek one-liners
