Gumnaam

Available on MUBI, Prime Video
Gumnaam is a ‘Whodunnit’ masterpiece from the golden sixties featuring a group of unsuspecting strangers who are drawn to their death by a criminal who has a ghastly ending planned for each of them. Eight people gather on an island, as winners of a contest, stranded and scared with no route for escape. The killer holds a grouse against each of these eight people, all of whom have their own skeletons buried in their cupboards. Someone’s carrying a revolver, someone’s carrying a bottle of deadly poison. The butler of the mansion, they are stuck in, is strange and an unknown woman goes around singing the title song of the movie in an eerie manner. Every day, every hour, every night, the bodies start piling up and no one is above suspicion. Featuring such stellar actors of the time as Manoj Kumar, Nanda, Pran, Mehmood and Helen, Gumnaam is an adaption of the cult Agatha Christie novel, ‘And then there were none’ and remains a cliffhanger till the very end.
