Silly, ridiculous, yet unintentionally semi-entertaining
25 September 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Gangaa Jamunaa Saraswathi is an awful film. The movie follows, cliché after cliché, the stories of its main characters, Ganga, Jamuna, Shankar (who is for some reason omitted from the title) and Saraswathi. The story of the film is very corny and almost every plot element looks familiar, forced and predictable, and is based on impossible coincidences. Technically the movie is also very bad, though that was the case with most Hindi movies of its sort at that time. The action sequences were, as expected, very overdone, and so was everything else in the movie, which was totally melodramatic, often for no reason. At times the movie was really unbearable, but it had its moments from time to time, though they still did not make it a worthy watch. I'm talking about the overly silly proceedings with almost every character going superhuman and supernatural, and the moments of lucky coincidence, which Manmohan Desai is so famous for. They all were ridiculous and unintentionally funny. The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan as Ganga. Bachchan is terribly miscast simply because he looks too old for the part. In terms of acting he does an okay job, still considering the film's poor writing. Mithun Chakraborty is given a role of minimal substance, and well, he too is okay. Jaya Pradha, as the golden-hearted prostitute, and Meenakshi Sheshadri, as the vivacious gypsy, are pretty. Nirupa Roy is the typical suffering mother, and Amrish Puri is the typical cruel villain. Anu Malik's music is alright. Manmohan Desai has had a prolific career, and I quite enjoyed some of his movies. Gangaa Jamunaa Saraswathi was his final offering as a director. Fans of this sort of movies would probably enjoy it, since it's a movie which requires no brain and is not to be taken seriously. I highly disliked it and found it quite pathetic.
