Reviewer: George Sylex
Overview - Megha Ramaswamy, the co-writer of Bejoy Nambiar's film Shaitan, joins with Abhay Deol as producer in her presentation film 'What Are the Odds?'. Not exclusively did What Are the Odds gloat of a new cast, yet additionally left watchers fascinated with its sneak peek. Tragically, the film neglected to have a similar impact on the crowd.
Review - The story starts with Vivek (Yashaswini Dayama), who brushes off her grant assessment and is unexpectedly joined by the head kid Ashwin (Karanvir Malhotra). The two of them take impromptu day off and set out on a peculiar experience, for the absence of an increasingly proper word. It is uncovered through the span of the story that Vivek is a hopeful music artist and a decent one at that. She takes Ashwin home, and they hang out at her place where Ashwin discovers some things about Vivek, similar to her dad left her twelve years earlier, and she lives with her grandma who experiences Alzheimer's.What occurs next is a progression of insane occasions in Vivek's, Ashiwn's and Val's 'fantastical excursion'.
Debutante movie maker Megha sagaciously shuffles between composing and making demonstrating how her uni dimensional vision causes the film to carry out a specific flavor. In spite of the fact there are times when her composing goes through some shallow paths, at that point she quickly tosses something lovely at your face keeping you interested. Wild viewpoints, such as, 'snowing in Mumbai', 'leaving spouse and children for being a cross dresser' are nimbly given a determination with a pinch of enchantment.
The film follows an exceptional storyline and the realism will without a doubt leave a grin all over. The exhibitions prevail upon us in this one. With Yashaswini's excellent regular act, Karanvir's noteworthy exhibition spell and Abhay's significant job, the film figures out how to send over the correct message. What's more, despite the fact that Abhay, who is additionally the film's maker, enters the film 40 minutes late, his consistent voice-over makes the ride intriguing. The supporting cast including Monica Dogra, Priyanka Bose, Manu Rishi and Sulbha Arya add onto the film.
What are The Odd's storyline is entirely intriguing and the exhibitions are genuine. Truth be told, if you were on a comparative experience you may wind up having a great time. In any case, that is simply it! The film follows a day we would prefer to live than watch. Living it might be energizing for a few, however watching it can feel like a drag. Indeed, their excursion is mysterious and unusual, and you will wind up gazing at the screen in wonder. It is charming and takes you to a different universe.
However, it sure isn't sufficiently engaging to save your consideration for long. The film has a very Wes Anderson-like interpretation of the excursion of two young people as they offer vent to their tension, experience and considerations in their day's journey. Set to the foundation of some dazzling Indipop tunes by Sagar Desai, the film feels like a charming supernatural ride. Then again, actually it has no feeling of a plot.
Final Word - In spite of the weirdo idea of the film, it has a ridiculous, standing around story that makes for an average watch on an exhausting day. It probably won't bode well, yet not all narratives do.
