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 »

Yet another terrible "copy and paste"
26 May 2005 | by pnchhedaSee all my reviews

No matter how much the Indian viewers/media try to hype "Bollywood", Naina proves that Bollywood is not capable for producing original ideas. I would highly recommend watching the original HK flick called Jian gui (aka "The Eye") rather that watching a "copied and pasted" laughable Indian version. Naina proves that Bollywood not only "frame to frame" copies foreign films but does a terrible job doing it! The producers did not even have a decency to change the name of the movie!

The plot, framing and in fact the lines are identical. When will the Indian producers realize that they cannot get away with crime. I am surprised that no one has sued the filmmakers for such a blatant copyright infringement. The performance of Urmila is laughable and the FX are very amateurish!
