During one of her shoots, there is a mishap and a
stuntman - Dev (Dino Morea) saves her life on the set.
She's impressed with him, and soon love blossoms between
them and then they are on a romantic high. Meanwhile Ria
is offered a lead role in a film by casting director
Rishi Gandhi (Madan Jain) with a condition that she has
to leave for Shimla the very next day.
Dev is very happy about her
getting the role in the film and sees her off, wishing all
the luck. On reaching Shimla, she is introduced to the
film's director Muni Gandhi (Govind Namdeo) who also
praises her beauty and appreciates his assistant's perfect
choice of casting her as the heroine.
Very soon Ria begins to
sense some unusual mystery around her. The director asks
her to give a screen test but when she asks for a second
take she’s refused.
The director’s assistant Rishi Gandhi delivers the
cassette to Remon (Suman Ranganathan) a rich female
staring in a huge mansion in Shimla. Who is this woman and
why the cassette has been delivered to her? What happens
after the screen test? How Ria tackles the situation and
what is Dev doing in Shimla? All this forms the crux of
the story of the high voltage drama Gumnaam- The Mystery
