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

Capsule Review: Everybody Says I'm Fine! (6 Stars)
31 August 2018 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

I was more than surprised to see Rahul Bose create an artistically moving and very indigenous piece of cinema in his clever directorial debut Everybody Says I'm Fine! that I was completely hooked to the screen the entire 100 minutes even as lead actor Rehan Engineer puts up a wooden face whenever he is supposed to act. For a film released in 2001, watching it in 2018 feels like a run down the memory lane, especially if you have been in Mumbai, as director Bose checks all the boxes in his product - Apple computers, upscale salon, trendy socialites, typical socialite talk with that vanity, young romance - and I sat there looking at them like a kid drooling at an ice-cream van's menu. Engineer plays a beauty salon owner who is also the head stylist/barber in the heart of the city and which is frequented by the socialites of the upper class Mumbai. Under his clean-shaven look and balding mane is the absurd power of hearing another person's thoughts whenever he cuts their hair, giving him a wholly different picture of the person than what they have concocted for the outside world. I don't think I have ever seen that concept out in the wild and it is absolutely fascinating to be a spectator with Xen, the character, as opens his shop, listens to a dozen inner thoughts, and goes back to sleep. Everybody Says I'm Fine! is made linearly and has bold scenes at every juncture, which I think must have contributed to how it was received close to two decades earlier. It even has Bose in a starring role (an eccentric), Boman Irani at his fine air of a businessman, and Pooja Bhatt - all of whom are so fun to watch regardless of their characters. I was blown away by the entire parade of proceedings that Everybody Says I'm Fine! churns out with so much substance and energy that I was a bit disappointed by how it ends. Looked like Bose was unable to bid adieu to his creative flow as the comedy drama ends like a bag full of water and one tiny leaking hole. Everyone interested in Bollywood should check it out though. TN.
