Not everyone is a fan of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Hum Aapke Hai Koun…!; movies for all die-hard romantics and those with a bit of too many sanskars. We love films like Murder and Kahaani which provide the perfect thrill, mystery, and suspense that leaves us at the edge of our seats. Unfortunately, Bollywood doesn’t churn out too many thrillers. But this Friday will be different as the much awaited double murder mystery Ittefaq starring Sidharth MalhotraSonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna is going to delight all cinephiles; especially those with a keen interest in whodunits.

But before you book your tickets here for Ittefaq, let’s revisit all those other Bollywood mystery films which left us shocked, surprised and awestruck. How many have you watched already?


This is a classic Bollywood whoddunit that not only treats us with a nail-biting climax but also boasts of a highly engaging storyline.


How sexy does the birthday boy look in a negative avatar? Shah Rukh Khan, who turns 52 today, gave such an incredible performance as the bad guy in this one that we can’t think of anyone else but Baadshah playing the role of Ajay Sharma.


Yaad hai na, 2nd October ko kya hua tha? The movie is full of twists and turns that will take you on an amazing roller coaster ride.


Kahani’s biggest strength was obviously Vidya Balan and Nawazuddin but even its storyline was a perfect mixture of intrigue and mystery and not even one moment in this film will leave you bored.

100 Days

Not many remember this psycho-thriller that starred Madhuri Dixit and Jakie Shroff in the lead roles. The story is about a young woman who has a vision about her sister’s murder and how she ultimately uncovers the big secret.


Everything is planned! If you remember this line, then you know who the real killer is in Ajnabee. For those who don’t why don’t you watch this murder mystery before you set out to discover Sidharth and Sonakshi’s secret?


With so many layers interwoven, Talaash is a paradise for those who like watching convoluted thrillers. This classic is strongly recommended if you haven’t seen it already.

Kartik Calling Kartik
