Storyline

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. Although Venkat has no interest in the money that could come from practicing his equation to crack Teen Patti, (a poker game) he eventually ... Written by Ambika A Hinduja

A good hand makes all the difference...
13 June 2010 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

My expectations were already rock-bottom after watching Leena Yadav's "Shabd". When Amitabh Bachchan, Hinduja's, Ben Kingsley and Madhavan have agreed to participate I thought Leena Yadav has a winner in her hands which will not only wash away her sins but also catapult like a phoenix.

Big B's character is too idealistic to relate. Shades of grey like in "Kaante" would have added sheen to the role of Venkat Subramanian. And he was looking quite old actually and his disenchantment showed.

Ben Kingsley was completely wasted. Edit his role completely and even a fly wouldn't budge. Incorporating him into the movie just fuelled marketing of bad apples.

Raima Sen hardly had meat in her character. Shraddha Kapoor seems promising and has a good screen presence.

Ajay Devgun, Jackie Shroff, Mahesh Manjrekar, Shakti Kapoor, Tinnu Kapoor & Ranjeet gave the blast from the past 1980's feeling.

What were Mita Vashist & Shivkumar Subramaniam were actually doing?

There are too many unnecessary characters and unwanted layers in the movie. Even the ode to "Bonnie & Clyde" was out of sync. Keeping the blackmailer in the hoods was not ably handled (Whodunnit? Audience couldn't care any less actually).

Already the movie was facing the plagiarism threat from 21, so anything more it sank it deeper.

The ending was so 1980's, melodramatic & Bollywood'ish.
