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
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 »
You remember when you tried to tell me what your family thought about love? Well, let me tell you what I think love is. Love is how you speak to me. You have a softness in your voice that- And love is how you touch me... and guide me showing me the way to go. And when we kiss-when we kiss... it moves me to my soul.

I really wanted to like this movie. Chris Pine is adorable and gives an appealing performance as a blind man looking for love. It's such a compelling story - how can you not root for this guy? But the movie doesn't know how to pick a tone! First, it's a raunchy, sexed-up comedy, with Danny's therapist stripping down to her underwear for no discernible reason and one of his blind dates pushing his face into her breasts and another doing a completely unsexy strip tease, which, of course, he can't see. Meanwhile, he's fallen in love with the lovely receptionist at his doctor's office, where he is contemplating an experimental surgery to partially restore his sight. It's like there were two movies that got crammed into one. The first is aimed at teenage boys and the other is aimed at people like me, who actually like movies about real people and real emotions. If you can ignore the sophomoric stuff, it's not a bad romance. And I guess if you just came for the breasts, there's enough of those for you. But it could have been a far better movie if they had just decided which one they wanted to make.
