Where did you watch this movie?

This glamorous drama centres around three female supermodels who live and work together. They belong to the international world of fashion and modelling and are top of their game artistes. Off the ramp, however, they are sexy, yet alone, in a male dominated society. When a regular fashion show goes horribly wrong, they are sucked into the nasty but irresistible underworld of Bombay. The girls have unwittingly botched up a diamond delivery to the Middle East. Their task is now cut out for them: Plan A - get into the fashion extortion business; Plan B - stage India's biggest bank robbery to get the diamonds back; Plan C - decamp with the loot. The girls plan to take on the Dons instead of buckling under their threats. They do this by planning India's biggest bank heist and then de-camping with the loot. The Dons have their own hierarchal manipulations - Chotte Mia (Jackie Shroff), Medium Mia (Gulshan Grover) and Bade Miya (Amitabh Bachchan). Chotte wants to be Medium, while Medium wants to be Bade and Bade has nowhere to go except to hold on. Can the three girls use their sexiness to outwit and outsmart the three dons?

Trivia:
Amitabh Bachchan wasn't paid his salary until the film released - he had to threaten to take the producers to court before he was paid.

Pooja Bhatt was supposed to be a joint partner in the production of this film with Ayesha, Jackie Shroff's wife but, she opted out of the project right before it took off.

This was the first Hindi film to shoot in the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai.

Naseeruddin Shah was the original choice for Bade Mia's character, he declined the role as he felt the script was weak; Amitabh Bachchan was roped in to replace him.

The shooting for this movie was complete in 63 days.

A lot of hype was generated before the release of Boom - however, the movie failed and a periodical called its review "Boom goes bust".

Amitabh Bachchan was criticized for doing such a raunchy role.
