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.

User Reviews: Watched ‘Teen Patti’ which was on my must-see list for a pretty long time. Its definitely another one of Amitabh’s magic.

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.
