I often order the Hindi movies at my local library. If it’s Hindi, I order it! Sometimes I end up with rather odd things as was the case with Sabse Badi Ganga Ki Saugandh. Is this maybe a TV movie remake version of Ganga Ki Saugandh (1978)? Maybe the library thought it was ordering the real Ganga Ki Saugandh? Who knows what happened, but now I want to see the real Ganga Ki Saugandh, and after seeing the wonderful screen capture maybe YOU will want to see Sabse Badi Ganga Ki Saugandh, which is from either 2000, or 2003, and sometimes listed as 2004. Dharmendra is cast in the film playing the good cop fighting the dacoits, but I don’t find it in any of his filmographies, so I wonder if it’s from television. Plus the DVD reads Show World Television, which would indicate a television production. I can’t wait to go to India one day, driving around in my Tata vehicle, saying, “I am of your caste and a spinster too!” If you know anything about this campy film, do tell!

Speaking of Dharmendra and dacoits, see what MemsaabStory has to say about Pratiggya (1975).
