Storyline

Mumbai-based model and aspiring actress, Ria (Mahima Chaudhary), meets with stuntman, Dev (Dino Morea), and both fall in love. Shortly thereafter, she gets an offer to act as a lead actress with renowned film-maker, Muni Gandhi, and accordingly re-locates to Shimla to start the filming. Enroute, she excitedly telephones Dev and tells him of the scenic surroundings as well as the echo of bells in a tunnel that emanate from a Hanumanji Mandir. Several days later, when he does not hear from her, he decides to travel there. But before he could do so, he does get her telephone call in which she sounds distressed and asks him to help her. When he asks about her location, she is unable to provide any, and the phone gets disconnected. The question that haunts Dev is: Where is Ria, and how is he going to assist her when he does not even know her location? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Gumnaam The Cheesy Mystery
1 September 2009 | by ChrysanthepopSee all my reviews

As cheesy as it is 'Gumnaam: The Mystery' isn't as bad as many have made it out to be, if compared to the usual Bollywood thriller (which are truly awful). Comparing it to Hollywood, European or Japanese thrillers would be a mistake because one would just be expecting too much. It is very Bollywoody film and the 'filmy' twists are like what you expect in such movies but at the same time, it didn't bore me. The execution is very 90s Bollywood, with songs appearing now and then and of course, plot holes and lack of character development. I liked the melodious soundtrack which features two or three very good songs. Mahima Chaudhry turns in a decent performance and sizzles on screen. I only wish that she would do more meaningful movies that showcase her talent rather than waste her effort in movies like this. Dino Morea is the typical Bollywood hero and is nothing outstanding here. Suman Ranganath has a half-baked ill-defined role but she makes the best of it and pulls it off. Expect lots of unintentional humour from 'Gumnaam: The Mystery' and a bit of Bollywood suspense, then you can even enjoy the cheesiness rather than frustrate yourself.
