A messy climax and two Aditya Roy Kapurs playing a game of convenience in the movie Gumrah

The police apprehend a suspect after a man is found dead in his home, only to discover that the suspect has a lookalike out and about. The investigation into the identity of the real murderer and how these two individuals may have such a similar appearance begins.

After Gaslight, this is the second Whodunit this month, and the genre just keeps getting sloppy additions since it is so difficult to solve. How frequently have you read tales that introduce the murderer in the opening scene and then use the rest of the story to uncover his motive? Gumraah is one of those films that thinks of itself as an intelligent film but quickly becomes entangled in the same scheme it devises to perplex the audience, in addition to other subpar entries in the genre.

Gumraah is a way too simple murder story done even more simply, with a script by Aseem Arora and a story by Magizh Thirumeni, that becomes pseudo-complex at the very end. An unimportant man is being murdered, the murderer is dressed in the most evocative “Killer” attire imaginable, and he cleverly escapes. The murderer is apprehended by police the following week after a very CID-level interrogation, but they end up in trouble when two men appear in front of them.

Vardhan Ketkar and Aseem add levels to this story’s complexity that are utterly irrelevant to the plot. Arjun, an Aditya Roy Kapur, is despised by a hammy named Ronit Roy because he aided his daughter’s elopement. Although this is a very practical explanation, the main plot doesn’t benefit much from it. Convenience is a topic that this product loves to discuss because it only considers straightforward routes. Proofs simply arise out of thin air without any effort on the part of anyone; everyone is in the right place at the right moment. Furthermore, given that the cops have practically kidnapped the two Adityas, why don’t either of them request that someone hunt for them? If not for family, does not one of them possess a complete agency? Aren’t his employees worried?

Giving credit where credit is due, the last reveal segment makes for good pulpy stuff that may be read separately. It is not related to the main plot in any way. There isn’t enough glue to hold the story together, which leaps from one setup to another. It appears to be a series of brief incidents that are unconnected. Songs are played to move things forward, but they have little effect. Additionally, the art department faces many questions. Because air contains oxygen and blood contains iron, if blood is left in the air the reaction changes the color from red to brown. Here, the blood resembles a lipstick smear. You’ll observe. Throwing out the book on accuracy.
