Perci Trachtenberg (Ben Kingsley), the world’s greatest living mathematician, meets Venkat (Amitabh Bachchan), a reclusive math genius from India, at a London casino. Venkat tells Perci about an equation that he has cracked and that would redefine the principles of probability and randomness. Aware that his extraordinary discovery can find applications across various sciences, Venkat wants to test his theory in the real world.
Professor Shantanu (Madhavan) persuades him to test his equation to crack the game of
(poker) along with a few students in the underground gambling dens of Mumbai. What starts out as an experiment between a young professor and an eccentric older one, soon descends into a game neither of them can control. A tragedy occurs, which then sparks an investigation that not only threatens to destroy the careers of both Shantanu and Venkat, but also eats into the very moral fibre of their beings.
