First film of 2019 kicks off the year on a rather sombre noteKARACHI: At its core, Gumm – the first Pakistani release of 2019 – is a survival film not unlike Netflix’s Bird Box. Gumm attempts to bring a different kind of thriller to Pakistan as we watch Asad make sense of his situation for the next two hours. However, Gumm makes the exact mistake that Bird Box does: there is no element that triggers the flashbacks (or the regaining of memory). In fact, one of the most frustrating parts of Gumm is sitting through three flashbacks which were not needed. Verdict: Gumm literally gets lost in the jungle.
