Movie Info

A new voice in Bombay's growing new wave, Rahul Bose spins this boisterous tale about love and secrets. Xen (Rehaan Engineer) is a popular hairdresser with a curious gift -- he can read the thoughts of people by touching their hair. Of course, such ability comes at a price. Following a bizarre accident, which took the lives of his parents at a young age, Xen has emotionally withdrawn from his surroundings, save the insights he experiences by handling hair. His regulars include Tanya Ruia, a wealthy socialite who is afraid to reveal that her finances has slipped; Mittal, a business professional who enjoys inflicting pain; a pair of college friends secretly in love with each other; and Xen's friend, Rage, whose dreams of film stardom are rapidly vanishing. Eventually, he meets Nikita, a beautiful debutante who seems to have no inner life at all. Soon Xen finds himself attracted to her and the silence that she brings. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival.

Very little of consequence can be said of the film ... other than that it is quieter and more realistic than the Bollywood spectacles that are India's best-known movies.

Bose shows depth when he deals directly with Xen's loneliness.

Satisfyingly offbeat.

Smartly designed and richly photographed, this film is an idiosyncratic charmer -- and a lot more.

Top Critic

The film is not strange in the David Lynch-Nicolas Roeg psycho-puzzle sense, but it does feel like an experiment in a my-first-movie sort of way.

Bose deserves credit for the wide-eyed verve of his highly original, if over-the-top, storyline.
