Storyline

In his youth, Sikander Malik lived a middle-class lifestyle in Bombay with his parents, who ran a musical band and a recording studio. One day the studio caught fire from a short-circuiting soundboard, instantly killing his parents. Sikander survived, recuperated and shortly thereafter found he has gained the ability to read people's minds whenever he comes in physical contact with them. Years pass. He now owns and operates a unisexual grooming parlor ('Xen's') and has a number of customers that include: Bhopal-born Tanya Ruia, who wants no one to know she has been separated from husband Jaydeep and son Rahul; Misha Patel, who sells cocaine to youngsters so that she can fund her need of this drug; collegians Bobby and Tina who secretly meet after hours in the salon; Rage, an outrageously eccentric young actor; Siddharth Mittal, a successful but abusive businessman and his daughter, Nikita. Things are about to change in Sikander's life. He finds he cannot read Nikita's mind, Misha ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com) / revised by statmanjeff

Quotes

Nikita: I know what this is all about. Now you're going to ask me what acute trauma struck me as a child to devastate me, numb all my thoughts - my very psyche - and turn me into this seemingly happy person who is, in fact, nothing but a shell of despair, right? Well, let me tell you something, Mr. Saintly Soul with Benign Eye: I'm not the one who's screwed up here, YOU are. Look at you. You work in one room all day, only to move into another one by night, a room that hasn't been aired for... months? ...

Trash, complete trash
5 September 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I hate the inaneness of the run of the mill Bollywood formula flick in general, so I decided to give this film the benefit of the doubt, especially since the writer/director Bose has a few good oeuvres under his belt, albeit as an actor ("English August", a laugh out loud portrayal of a young civil servant's career in rural India, and "Mr and Mrs Iyer", a serious look at the communal divide between Hindus and Muslims woven into a warm and vibrant cross-country bus trip), this film being his foray behind the camera.

The plot revolves around Xen, a young hairdresser who has the bizarre ability to read people's minds while he is cutting their hair. This leads to a series of revelations most of them loosely connected with the story, although some scenes go off on tangents and you're left wondering why they are there.

The film fails on many levels. Real people do not act this way. Yes, the uppermost strata of Indian society are known for their mercedes-driving, club-going, gossipy and fake lifestyles, but several characters in the story are hopelessly overdone. Rahul Boses, Rage, character could have been less melodramatic and less wordy. So could Koel Purie's Nikita. This kind of acting fits nicely into a three-act play, playing these characters on film however is a completely different ball game altogether.

The script tries to be something it is not - intelligent. In a couple of scenes involving Rage and Nikita's interactions with Xen the hairdresser, the scriptwriter sounds like he wants to get as many words into one sentence as he can, leaving the actor gasping for breath after the delivery. Why the verbosity ? There is a benefit to keeping it simple - it won't not look fake!

And finally, does the writer really want us to empathize with a murderer ? And live happily ever after ?

Keep it real, Rahul, keep it real.
