Storyline

A charming young blind man signs up for a dangerous experimental procedure: brain surgery that may give him partial vision. While taking tests he falls hard for the lovely East Indian nurse, but she has been promised in an arranged marriage - a promise she feels she cannot break without dishonoring her family. But when the man's brain surgery goes unexpectedly awry, the crisis effects a reunion between the two young lovers. Written by gavin (gunmasterM@hotmail.com)

The vision center of the brain is located in the occipital lobe at the back of the head. Danny's operation was done on the temporal lobe behind the ear, which is closer to the memory and language section of the brain. See more »

Leaves much to be desired
20 September 2007 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This is a comedy about a blind guy realising that he has never had any taste of women, and hence searches for his first love.

The poster suggests that this is a teenage sex comedy. However, just a few horrible dating scenes are not enough to make it into a comedy. It is not a drama either as there is too little portrayal of the characters feelings. Most of the characters are too clichéd and stereotypical to be funny. The relationship between Danny and Leeza is unconvincing either. The whole film lacks the substance which attracts the viewers to continue finding out what happened.

At least, a film about blind people gets made. It reminds people about the extra hardships that blind people face. Such a theme is not often explored. I guess the filmmakers should be applauded for their effort, but the outcome of it leaves much to be desired.
