Based on the award-winning novel by H.R.F. Keating, Merchant Ivory Productions’ The Perfect Murder is a highly entertaining, exotic detective thriller. Inspector Ghote (Naseeruddin Shah) of the Bombay police has just been assigned his most perplexing case: a savage attack on a rich industrialist’s private secretary. Together with a visiting Swedish criminologist (Stellan Skarsgard), he begins his investigation, and the clues, and suspects, begin to pile up. As Ghote edges closer to the truth, he discovers he may not be dealing with murder at all, but something far more complex and profitable.
