Boom (Hindi: बूम) is a Bollywood film that was released on 19 September 2003. It stars Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff, Gulshan Grover, Padma Lakshmi, Madhu Sapre, Zeenat Aman and Katrina Kaif. The film is directed by Kaizad Gustad and produced by Jackie Shroff's wife, Ayesha Shroff. It explores the involvement of the fashion world with underworld crime.
Boom was Katrina Kaif's debut film. It has been described by critics as a "soft-porn venture masquerading as clever, outside-the-box cinema".
Anu Gaekwad (Madhu Sapre), Sheila Bardez (Padma Lakshmi) and Rina (Katrina Kaif) are three of India's top models. A prestigious diamond fashion show goes wrong and, inadvertently, they become embroiled in a jewellery heist. While on the runway, one of the models intentionally trips Anu, a model's worst nightmare. Anu's supportive friends, Sheila and Rina, come to the rescue. The trio confronts the model who tripped Anu and, soon thereafter, as the ladies get into a scuffle, they are met with a big surprise. Hundreds of glittering stolen diamonds, which were due to be smuggled out of the country, fall from the model's hair and on to the ramp only to be snatched up by paparazzi and celebrities alike.
Anu, Sheila and Rina are in shock as the fashion show turns to mayhem. The stolen diamonds are priceless antiques and have to be recovered by the gangsters, who hold the three glamorous models responsible for the heist-gone-wrong. The diamonds were due to be smuggled to Dubai and were stolen by Chhote Mia (Jackie Shroff). They were then to be handed to his brothers. The leader of the trio, Bade Mia (Amitabh Bachchan) is determined to get the diamonds back and so begins a cat and mouse game between the three models and the three gangsters. Who will succeed in outwitting the others?
