Gumnaam (Urdu for "unknown" or "anonymous") is a 1965 Hindi ghost movie directed by Raja Nawathe, starring Manoj Kumar, Nanda, Pran, Helen and Mehmood. The film became a box office hit.

The story is based on Agatha Christie's novel "And Then There Were None".

The film came to wider attention when its opening song Jaan Pehechan Ho (a Hindi phrase roughly translated as "We should get to know each other") was in the opening credits of Ghost World. It is sung by Bollywood legend Mohammed Rafi, although he is not the man pictured; the main dancer is Laxmi Chhaya.

Seven people mysteriously win a free vacation. On the way to their destination, the plane has engine trouble and they are left abandoned in a remote seaside location. They find shelter in a large mansion inhabited by a comical butler Mehmood. One by one, they are murdered and the remaining vacationers try to figure out why they were chosen for the trip and what they have in common.
