Where did you watch this movie?

Embedded with mystery and suspense, this fast-paced crime thriller delves into the dangers faced by a fashion photographer, Dilip (Kamal Haasan). He gets involved with a group of three supermodels, all of whom are sent abroad for an international tour by business magnate Oberoi (Shyamsunder). Other models similarly sent abroad seem to show up dead under strange circumstances, and when the cycle repeats with these three, Dilip becomes the prime suspect. In order to prove himself innocent, he finds himself not only on the run from the police, but deeply embroiled in an investigation into grisly murders that point to a conceited and dangerous criminal web. Why are these beautiful young women turning up dead? What is the secret behind other models who have little incisions on their bodies, and no memory of how they got them? How is his boss, the owner of a successful ad agency, connected with a nefarious smuggling network?

The producer who acquired the dubbing rights wanted to cash in on Kamal Haasan's movie 'Mumbai Express'. He released the film 2 weeks after Mumbai Express hit theatres. He decided to title the film Bombay Express to make people believe that his film was 'Mumbai Express' and it would increase DVD sales.

This movie is the Hindi dubbing of the Tamil Movie Tick Tick Tick (1981).

The Tamil original was later remade in Hindi as Karishmaa (1984), with Kamal Haasan reprising his role and Reena Roy replacing Madhavi.

The original Tamil version was also dubbed into Telugu as 'Tik Tik Tik'.
