100 years of Bollywood: The swinging '60s

Ganga Jamuna (1961)

Director: Nitin Bose

Cast: Dilip Kumar, Vyjayanthimala, Nasir Khan, Azra and Leela Chitnis

Dilip Kumar's second success right after Mughal-e-Azam was a blockbuster hit that year. The story of two brothers, portrayed by real life brothers Dilip Kumar and Nasir Khan, became a trendsetter for future movies based on the theme of brothers on the opposite sides of the law, most famously Deewar. Ganga Jamuna became the highest grossing film that year and the third highest grossing film of the decade behind Mughal-e-Azam and Sangam.
