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

Trivia

Actors 'Ajay Devgan' and Akshaye Khanna were approached after Arshad Warsi's exit from the project. Ajay was the first actor to be approached. He demanded Rs 7 crore and the producers were willing to pay. However, he could not give them the dates they wanted. Aksaye Khanna was approached and he liked the subject but he too couldn't be a part of movie too, because of dates unavailability and finally Madhavan stepped in. Interestingly, Ajay Devgan did play a cameo role instead. See more »

Patti Review
7 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I beg to differ from the negative reviews. It may be a copy of 21. But I kept an open mind when I watched it. Yes, even though its a copy the actors were really good. The debut artists particularly were awesome. How can you not give them the credits for acting so good?? Yes I guessed the ending way before, but it does not take away the fact that the acting was superb and I personally enjoyed the movie. Good movie with a good underlying message to it. I don't know why people would give bad ratings to this movie...there are many cheap comedy flicks which pass the box office with positive reviews and higher ratings. If you are into serious movies, not expecting slapstick comedy...then yes this movie can be for you...Give it a try with an open mind.
