Her enactment of a supermodel ensnared in the Mumbai underworld was not well received, with Ziya U. Salam of The Hindu attributing the poor performances of the film's leading ladies to "the vacuity of their expressions." Post-release, she was initially written off due to her thick British accent.On its failure, Kaif dismissed the film, saying that "I don't count Boom among important happenings in my life. When I signed this film, I didn't know much about India and its film audience. I got to know later that the film had major flaws in terms of script and presentation."

The film received mixed reviews, though became Kaif's second consecutive blockbuster, with worldwide earnings of INR1.16 billion (US$18 million).Despite these films doing well at the box office, she roles were overlooked as the general perception from critics was that the films did not allow "much for the women to do" and that she was "nothing more than [a] glamourous prop" in her appearances.
The following year, she collaborated with Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Bipasha Basu, Anil Kapoor and Sameera Reddy for Abbas-Mustan's action thriller Race. The film follows the story of two stepbrothers-turned-rivals who are in contention of their father's insurance payment. she enacted the role of Ranveer's (Khan) double-crossing secretary and his stepbrother's (Khanna) lover.

The film narrates the story of three estranged brothers—Deven (Salman Khan), Danny (Zayed Khan) and Gyanesh (Anil Kapoor), and the attempts of the former two into scamming money from their mentally ill brother.
