Goofs

Drowning as the mode of death in the donor is considered an absolute contraindication for cornea donation, as the tissue is always contaminated. Here the cornea donor drowned and resurfaced over night. Her tissue would never be used for transplantation. Also the tissue from an obscure primary health centre in Gujarat reaching London is improbable. See more »

Not as good as I expected
12 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

I was expecting Naina to be a really good movie after I read the interesting story about a girl in London who lost her eyesight and parents in a car accident. She was raised by her grandmother and when she became a young woman she got an eyes donor. After the operation she started to see strange things like dead people, shadows and bad incidents that are yet to happen. The first half was quite good and relentless but the second half was very slow, boring and depressing when Naina went to India from London to unsolve the mystery. If you liked Urmila's other two horror films Kaun & Bhoot then Naina is probably the film for you. Personally I liked both of them. It is a remake of a Korean film "The Eye" I've not seen it but most people said that The Eye is better and I think that the Hollywood version is due to the end of 2007 but i'm not sure. Overall this film is OK to be watched once and my verdict is 5/10 if the second half was good then I might of given it a 6-7 out of 10 but their is no chance that I will rate it 8-10 out of 10.
