Everybody Says I'm Fine! | 2003
Is this Manhattan? Hampstead? Or a plush suburb of Bombay? Xen's up-scale hairdressing salon is frequented by India's fair and ultra-lovely socialites, who arrive to get their hair coiffed and egos pampered. Drop-dead-gorgeous Xen is a warm-hearted loner with a secret talent; he can read the minds of his customers when he touches their hair. Through Xen we explore the lives of several of these wealthy customers who on the surface seem brazen, but underneath have tangled lives including a wanna-be-actor, an abused wife and a corrupt corporate czar. Cute but crazy Niki intrigues Xen when he finds he cannot read her thoughts. The two begin a journey of emotional and sexual discovery that leads to murder when Niki reveals that she has a dark secret.
