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

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 »
15-20 people in the theatre again. Another flop. Teen Patti starts off OK. Amitabh Bacchan explains probability and some how manages to predict which hand will in a game of Teen Patti. Then, it starts to fade away with sequences which offer nothing of interest one after the other.
As the movie progresses, it becomes more pointless. It is disjointed and badly edited which gets poorer by the second. It becomes a movie which says greed is bad and shows how relationships break down, student commits suicide in stress and keeps ramming the fact that trying to earn money by this method is dirty. Then there is the supposed main plot of the movie where they are trying to find out the mysterious blackmailer which pops up every twenty minutes only to disappear.
And I haven't come to Ben Kingsley-Amitabh Bacchan scenes. First of all all we know is Ben Kingsley is a rich man, probably owner of a casino. And every 40 minutes there is a scene between the two mulling about life and giving away philosophies which are drab. Worst of all, they are dubbed in Hindi which is ****ing ridiculous. Makes the dialogues seem even more pointless, if that's possible.
And the acting by the actors including Amitabh Bachchan is very ordinary. I give the movie a 0.5/10 and that's only because I like two songs in the movie.
