One of the greatest travelers in human history, 21 year old law student Ibn Battutah set out alone to Mecca from Tangiers in 1325 and returned to Morocco almost 30 years later. This is the ... See full summary »
Perci Trachtenberg, widely regarded as the world's greatest living mathematician, meets Venkat, a reclusive math genius from India, at a high rolling casino in London. Venkat tells Perci about an equation that could not only change the dialogue on mathematics forever, but one that has already left an indelible impression of guilt - for many painful reasons - on Venkat's life. As it turns out, the reclusive genius Venkat has cracked a theory that could redefine the principles of probability and randomness. However, as with all exceptional knowledge, his equation has its upside - as well as its dark underbelly. Aware that he is on the precipice of an extraordinary discovery, one that could find applications across various sciences, Venkat is encouraged to test his theory in the real world by professor Shantanu, an ambitious colleague of Venkat.

Actor Madhavan was very excited to work with Amitabh Bachchan, and was thankful for Arshad Warsi declining the role as it was Madhavan's long-cherished dream to be in a full fledged role with Bachchan. See more »
Watched 'Teen Patti' which was on my must-see list for a pretty long time. Its definitely another one of Amitabh's magic. Wonder how all the story lines he has worked upon in his second innings are so splendid. And, every time I get this amazing feeling of watching a real-life character in whatever role he performs. He excels in-spite of negative portrayal and clumsy make-up with the help of his eyes and voice that are damn expressive! He is definitely an icon from whom all the actors who are aging up must learn to choose roles from. The other actors in the movie have given a neat performance as well. If you are a type who likes suspense movies that make sense and also convey a message, go for it.
