Storyline

U.S.-based Leeza works in Dr. Perkins Medical Research Facility. Her mother, originally from India, was single when she arrived in America, and fell in with a Caucasian male as he looked like a movie star. Her dreams were shattered when he married a prettier Caucasian, leaving her to marry an East Indian. Leeza, now engaged to a boy of her father's choice, namely U.S.-based Arvind, meets with Danny, a Caucasian who is blind since his premature birth. He has enrolled himself at Dr. Perkins facility to try out a new procedure that will result in surgery to a part of his brain to restore his visual cortex, enabling him see in fuzzy black and white images. She is attracted to him, but is aware of her commitment to marry Arvind and feels it would be against the Hindu culture (where love is measured with loyalty, trust, respect, and commitment) to break off her engagement - especially when it seems that Danny may be able to see, reject her, and get involved with a much more attractive ...

Blind Dating is not what it looks like, it's more
7 September 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I just saw Blind Dating, and I really liked it. It was fairly well acted and, more importantly, it had heart.

What I'm confused about is the cover to the film, it looks like a teenage movie with hot girls and bad jokes, but it's everything but. Chris Pine's portrait of a blind guy seems very real to me, and I really felt for him throughout the whole movie. The story is somewhat obvious, and not that inventive, but it has a point, and even though it's sometimes a little cliché it's still very decent and enjoyable. (After all IT IS a comedy/drama, there just has to bee some parts we all know.)

Everybody are just human, after all. It doesn't matter if you are visually impaired, what skin color you have or what your heritage is. Watch this flick if you want to feel a little better.
