It's been 32 years of Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, and the film has definitely aged like a fine wine. Nasir Hussain produced and co-wrote the sports coming-of-age film from 1992, while Mansoor Khan directed it. In case you are planning to celebrate the film by watching it on OTT, you can stream it right away on ZEE5 (OTTplay Premium) for free. In addition to Aamir Khan, JJWS also stars Ayesha Jhulka, Pooja Bedi, Deepak Tijori, Mamik Singh, and Kulbhushan Kharbanda in pivotal roles. For the uninitiated, the film is about the most esteemed college event—the marathon bike race—where a rich brat and a poor chap's feud over a girl comes to a head.

Inspiration from American Cinema

Based on the 1979 American film Breaking Away, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar took inspiration from the retro film. Many people have come to love the film and often hail it as a masterpiece of Indian cinema's coming-of-age genre. In Bollywood, Jo Jeeta Woh Hi Sikandar serves as The Archies' initial source of inspiration.


When it comes to the plot, Sanjaylal (Aamir Khan) and Ratanlal Sharma (Mamik Singh) are two brothers from Dehradun who are the story's central characters. Sanjay is a carefree joker who is constantly getting into trouble, in contrast to Ratanlal's diligent study habits and hard work. The strong rivalry among the three colleges causes Ratanlal to unexpectedly lose the cycle race. Sanjaylal is now determined to regain his brother's respect by winning the award.

Comprehensive appeal and cultural impact

Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar has garnered admiration for its comprehensive approach! The film features a romantic song about the start of love in Pehla Nasha, complete with a slow-motion sequence and fairytale choreography by Farah Khan Kunder, as well as a thrilling cycling race that captivates viewers throughout the sequence. The film also gives a glimpse into the love triangle, but in a new way, which sets the precedent for many Bollywood films.
