This Friday the thriller TE3N starring Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui & Vidya Balan releases at the box office. It’s an old fashioned murder mystery (a whodunit, if you will) with a new twist, and if you’re hankering for more, we’ve got just the thing for you. Here are 5 amazing Bollywood mystery films you simply shouldn’t miss.
All 90s kids will know this! Yes this one is a 90s classic and almost 20 years later the amazing twist is still discussed in whispers.
A golden oldie. Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None is the grand daddy of mystery novels and this desi adaptation is the mother of all Bollywood whodunits.
Manorama Six Feet Under
An indie gem, this desi take on Jack Nicholson’s Chinatown is a clever, rewarding watch with a great performance from Abhay Deol.
This list would be incomplete without a film from Abbas-Mustan and this one marked a turning point in their careers. It’s a sexy, stylish thriller featuring big names like Akshay Kumar & Kareena Kapoor. Loads of fun.
This nifty little movie, while borrowing from the Brad Pitt starrer Se7en, is still a pretty tense and refreshingly lean thriller and Sushmita Sen is totally badass as the lead cop.
