Storyline

A well-known Nawab, who is an author as well as a poet in Hyderabad, India, is approached by a beautiful young woman, with a heavy Hyderabadi accent named Meenaxi, to write a story on her, which the Nawab agrees to do so. When the Nawab's antique car breaks down, he takes it to a motor mechanic, and thus a story is formed in the Nawab's mind. The story takes place in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, where his lead actress is the maternal niece of the local Raja Bijendra Singh, and the motor mechanic is Kameshwar Mathur, the only son of a multi-millionaire. Kameshwar and Meenaxi meet and are instantly attracted to each other. The second scenario the Nawab creates takes place in Prague, the Czech republic, where Meenaxi is portrayed as a young woman living in a Nunnery by the name of Maria Gulcova, who has been assigned to do some research on India and it's culture.

Trivia

A kissing scene was to be shot for the film in the swimming pool of a plush Jaisalmer hotel. The water was very cold - however, Tabu, an actress experienced in such shots, got into the pool half an hour before the shot was to be taken, while 'Kunal Kapoor' lingered outside. Although Tabu shivered for about fifteen minutes, she was completely prepared for the shot after twenty minutes. Then Kunal got in the pool just before the shot was to be taken - and when "Action!" was called, the young actor just shivered. See more »

Meenaxi:The intellectual's movie
17 August 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

It is sad that such a brilliant film went unnoticed by many people. Meenaxi is one of the best Indian movies. Though the screenplay seems confusing, it is in the class of movies like 'A beautiful mind' and 'Memento'. A depiction of the confusion between reality and mental projection is very difficult and M.F. Hussain has done it in a superb manner. It takes more than a man of average psyche to understand this film.

Other than the story and the direction, the music by AR Rahman is absolutely brilliant and the visualizations are really great. Overall, a must-watch for the mavericks out there.
