I've opted to write about another film, rather than series, for my fifth Murder Mystery Monday. As it's based on an Agatha Christie novel (And Then There Were None) I felt it was an apt addition.
Gumnaam is one of only two Bollywood films I've seen to date but I definitely want to see more, especially from the '60s, at some point.
Most people would be familiar with this film from the song Jaan Pehechan Ho being included in the opening sequence to Ghost World...
However I think this may be my favourite song from the film.
Is Duniya Mein Jeena Ho To Sun lo Meri Baat sung by Lata Mangeshkar and picturised on Helen.
Great songs aside, both Helen and Nanda sport some amazing '60s hair and outfits throughout the picture...
Nanda's perfect flip!
Helen had some truly beautiful clothes.
Look at this top! And those pants!
And it's possibly my favourite adaptation of And Then There Were None. Maybe. It is one of my favourite of Christie's novels. But I think Gumnaam adds humour without detracting from the suspense of the plot.
Any other fans? I think it was a very good choice for my first foray into Bollywood.
