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 »

A B-Grade Rip-Off
15 May 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

I wonder why this movie had three writers since all Shripal Morakhia did was rip-off almost every frame of the Pang Brothers' captivating movie 'Jian Gui'. Not only does it copy the aforementioned movie, but it does so terribly. Morakhia Bollywoodizes it by making the main character an NRI (non-residential Indian) based in England where everybody seems to speak Hindi. There are no songs but the romance between Naina and her psychiatrist looks rushed. The jump moments are laughably bad while the special effects are mostly adequate. Urmila Matondkar is competent. This is far from her best work but she is terrific in the non-'jump' scenes. What made her choose to do this? The rest of the actors are passable at best. I'm surprised the film was accepted at the Sitges Film Festival because I hardly see any appeal in it. It's a bad movie that has an Indian Hollywoodish B-grade feel to it.
