Like, when the American family thinks the gals wearing a curtain (oops, that's a sari buddy).
Star Trek’s Chris Pine is a real charmer in this low-budget comedy, but the same can’t be said of the film itself.
Although a series of dates goes very wrong in a number of ways, Danny eventually meets a nurse (Anjali Jay), who agrees to go out with him, although her Indian family may prove a greater hindrance to their happiness than his medical condition.
It was fairly well acted and, more importantly, it had heart.
Yes, Chris is the visually challenged virgin who falls in love with Anjali, the petite little receptionist (also a virgin) in his doctor's clinic.
But problems begin when Anjali confesses she's Indian; which means, she's different; which means she must marry an Indian chauvinist: which means she must settle down and have babies; which means she can't go to medical school and follow her dreams.... It's a soppy little tale of cross-cultural romance that sometimes falls into familiar cliches.
Believing that Leeza did not pursue their relationship because of his being blind, Danny becomes depressed and stops taking the necessary tests for his brain surgery. He sees his family's faces for the first time, but not Leeza's, who was away, reluctantly preparing for her marriage.
Soon the experiment proves to be a failure, as the fragile prosthesis in his brain moves, clouding his already weak vision, and Danny goes back to being blind.

The Tomatometer rating – based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics – is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers.

The structure and premise of the story aren't too bad at all, but the execution is lousy.
