Teen Patti

"A Film about greed, deception and giant feats of imagination"


Set in India and England, and starring two of the greatest living acting legends of our times - czar of the Indian film industry, Amitabh Bachchan and Academy Award Winner Sir Ben Kingsley, 'Teen Patti' is an emotionally riveting and razor sharp thriller about greed, deception and giant feats of imagination. Relayed against the backdrop of modern India made internationally beloved following the success of Slumdog Millionaire, 'Teen Patti' is one of the most fascinating new films to emerge from Asia, its theme and narrative are so profoundly particular to India that it is ultimately transcendent and therefore universal in its appeal.

Sir Ben Kingsley, who essays Perci Trachtenberg, widely regarded as the world's greatest living mathematician, meets Venkat, played by Amitabh Bachchan, 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.
