Gumnaam - 3AEX 5066 - (Condition 85-90%) - LP
Khanna is a wealthy man who gets another rich
man, Sohanlal, murdered via a contract killer in a staged car accident. He
conveys the news of Sohanlal's death to the latter's niece, Asha. Some
days later, Asha wins a trip to an island in a lucky draw at a gala along
with six others: Barrister Rakesh, Dharamdas, Kishan, Dr. Acharya, Madhusudan
Sharma and Kitty Kelly. They travel to the island in a chartered aircraft
with Anand, a member of the aircraft crew. Suddenly, the plane develops an
issue, causing an emergency landing. Every one leaves the aircraft along with
their luggage on the instructions of the pilot. The aircraft suddenly takes
off leaving them stranded on an island. Anand denies having any knowledge of
why they have been marooned. Everybody tries to scout the place, but in vain.
Suddenly, a woman starts singing an ominous song. Trying to find the woman
and also the place on where they were supposed to stay on the island, they
finally reach their destination. It is a mansion maintained by a butler.
Later, at the dinner table, Dharamdas spots a diary. Anand reads aloud the
diary's contents to everyone which reveals that they are all connected to a
crime and responsible for it. The writer of the diary says that he is going
to kill all of them - one each day. The butler claims that he knows nothing
about the 'ghost' woman who sings the ominous song. As everybody retires to
their rooms, Anand spies on them and finds that Dr. Acharya has brought along
a bottle of poison and that Dharamdas has a revolver. Kishan catches him in
the act, but does nothing. Meanwhile, the butler too acts suspicious and his
actions prove that there is at least one more person in the house. The next
day Kishan spots a ship. He, Kitty and Dr. Acharya try to send a distress signal
to the ship, but in vain. Meanwhile, Anand starts flirting with Asha.
Rakesh and Kitty also take a shine for each other. Although everyone is
suspicious of each other Rakesh's prime suspect is Anand. That night Kishan
is murdered and Anand and Asha find his corpse. The killer has left a note
that read that Kishan was the contract killer who murdered Sohanlal. It
becomes clear that everyone in the house was connected with Sohanlal in one
way or another. The group deduces that Dharamdas is the one who killed
Kishan. He pleads innocence upon which Sharma asks everybody to give him one
day to prove his innocence. The next night Dharamdas is found dead by Anand
and Asha. Anand concludes that the culprit was within the group while Rakesh
believes that Dharamdas was poisoned by the doctor. Kitty is revealed
to be Sohanlal's personal secretary, Rakesh the lawyer who had created
Sohanlal's will on Khanna's orders. It is also revealed that Kitty sent the
papers of the will to Rakesh as instructed by Khanna, although neither knew
about each other. Asha has her own suspicions on Anand who clams up when she
asks him for information about himself. Anand spots Rakesh hiding an axe. Dr.
Acharya soon arrives screaming that Sharma has been killed. It is apparent
that Sharma was axed to death. The killer has left another note stating that
Sharma was Khanna's co-conspirator in Sohanlal's murder. Anand accuses
Rakesh of Sharma's murder while Rakesh is now unsure of Anand's guilt. Dr.
Acharya later catches the butler engaging in a suspicious activity,
indicating that he has learnt the butler's secret. A scuffle between the two
follows. As the doctor enters the dining room and collapses before Asha and
Kitty they realise that he has been stabbed to death. Right before his death
he utters Anand's name. Rakesh now believes that Anand is the killer, but the
latter denies it. Asha, who begins to question her faith in Anand, ends up
drinking with Kitty. Anand and Asha argue over this. The next day
Rakesh advises Asha to not to go alone anywhere. Asha tells him that she has
been searching for Kitty. Sensing something to be amiss, they start looking
for her. Kitty has gone for a swim but senses that she is not alone. She
starts to flee but the unseen killer corners her and hangs her from a tree.
Rakesh and Asha arrive at the scene too late but his suspicion is confirmed
on spotting Anand's hat near Kitty's corpse. Rakesh sees Anand and starts
chasing him but loses his trail. In a fit of rage Rakesh returns to the
mansion and tries to rape Asha. She escapes but runs into Rakesh again just
as he is collapsing, revealing two daggers that have pierced into his chest.
The lights in the mansion go out indicating that the killer has arrived and
that she is the next target. As the killer approaches Asha, she faints. He
carries her into a secret room in the mansion and revives her. Madhusudan
Sharma, who is the killer, tells her that owing to Anand's growing suspicion
of him, he convinced Dr. Acharya to help fake his own death. To avoid leaving
a trail he also murdered the doctor before resuming his killing spree. Anand
appears on the scene and reveals that he is a police inspector while Sharma
is an escaped convict named Madanlal. Sharma, also known as Madanlal,
overpowers Anand and Asha and ties them up. Madanlal recounts his story:
Khanna, Sohanlal and he were partners in smuggling. When Madanlal was caught
by the police, the other two convinced him to take all the blame. After
Madanlal was convicted and jailed, Sohanlal raped his sister and she later
committed suicide. Sohanlal and Khanna also killed Madanlal's brother. Khanna
had Sohanlal killed to usurp the latter's money. Every person Madanlal had
killed so far was involved in the plan to murder Sohanlal. The 'ghost'
singing the ominous song is revealed to be the butler's mentally ill sister.
Madanlal killed Khanna and ensured that his targets 'won' the lucky draw.
Madanlal plays a game of Russian Roulette with Anand and Asha, while the
butler stealthily frees Anand. When it becomes obvious that Asha will get the
bullet, Anand suddenly attacks Madanlal. In the melee that ensues Madanlal
escapes from the mansion and runs towards the shore. An aircraft full of
policemen arrives and Madanlal is promptly arrested. Anand, Asha, the butler
and his sister also leave on the aircraft.
