Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai (English: "The Country Where Ganga Lives") is 2000 Hindi film directed by Mahesh Manjrekar and starring Govinda and Sonali Bendre as leads. It is a remake of Dada Kondke's blockbuster Marathi film Eakta Jeev Sadashiv released in 1972 and the 1974 Kannada movie Bangaarada Panjara.


Gangaram alias Ganga (Govinda) lives a simple, straightforward life in a small village with his mom and dad (Shivaji Satham and Reema Lagoo), and his girlfriend, Saawni (Sonali Bendre). When the time comes for Ganga to marry, his parents inform him that his biological parents live in the city and want him to settle there. Ganga bids tearful farewell to his village and its inhabitants and travels to the city of his birth parents. He finds that he has an elder brother, who is married to Supriya, and younger siblings, as well as his birth parents, Avinash (Shakti Kapoor) and Radha (Himani Shivpuri), who are all very wealthy. Ganga struggles to cope up with the modern and city lifestyle. His sister-in-law also begins to dislike him more as days pass by. Soon word spreads about Ganga being the latest eligible bachelor. He is asked to marry a socialite, Tina (Rinke Khanna), as per his parents' wishes. Ganga agrees to everything his new-found family wants him to do. Things get really bad for Ganga that he runs away from his biological parents' home and finds his older brother being blackmailed by a woman and two goons. He saves his brother but his best friend gets stabbed in the stomach by one of the goons who flee the scene and gets accused for stabbing his own friend. Ganga refuses to speak the truth about the incident at court as he does not want his family's reputation to be ruined until his sister-in-law who learns the truth from her husband, speaks out at court and proves his innocence. After the verdict, Ganga and his best friend return to their village where he reunites with Saawni and his parents who agree to get him and her married.
