Storyline

After dancing together in a night club, seven young people (five men and two women) are told they have won the night's dance contest and are instructed to board a small plane that will take them to their prize holiday. Instead, they end up stranded on a small island with one of the plane's co-pilots. In search of shelter, the eight go to a mansion where they meet a sinister-looking butler who announces that he knows all them and has been expecting their arrival. After a few musical numbers, castaways begin dropping dead one by one. Who could the killer be, and will any of them escape his grasp? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

One of the most entertaining bits I've seen...
18 November 2002 | by (Albuquerque, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

Hailing from Bollywood, Gumnaam is a true classic. No, my friends, not because of grand acting or good lighting, but how utterly horrible it is makes me laugh so hard. I watched this last Thanksgiving with most of my family, and some of us were rolling on the ground in laughter. It's like the "Plan 9" of India. Beware, fellow film buffs, and witness the most entertaining cinema piece to come out of India EVER!
