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 »

Shameless Copycat
2 July 2006 | by Rabh17See all my reviews

I watched this and saw SCENE by SCENE as Naina ripped its script from "The Eye" (Jian Gui). From the little girl in the hall, the dead man in the elevator, etc.

Creatively speaking, while the acting was good, they did NOT make an effort to reset the story to an Indian perspective. They didn't attempt to reform or wrap it in Indian religious mysticism. They just changed the actors and changed the set-- but kept the script nearly EXACTLY. And then the credits were purposefully little more than unreadable tiny blurred smudges.

What made 'The Eye' striking was the fact that the Life/Death focused was rooted in East Asian religious outlook-- it was seeing the supernatural through a different lens.

See the FIRST version-- THEN judge.
