This film follows a single day into the life of a very highly spirited and energetic teenager, Vivek who goes forward to do a very small and insignificant crime such as a initiating a mark of "protest". However, this leads to her striking a very usual and unexpected friendship with a very well-behaved, always saving the day, head boy of her school named Ashwin
What Are The Odds, is a film that shows the sweet slice of a life. It talks about the lives of two school kids belonging to the city of Mumbai. Lead characters, Vivek (Yashaswini Dayama) and Ashwin (Karanvir Malhotra) are to appear for a Hindi scholarship exam when they don’t even know each other. While Vivek is the rebellious one and edgy who always protests against an education to gender-conforming names, Ashwin is the charming head boy of the school with ‘a perfect face’ and leads a life with no issues and confrontations. However, everything goes in the other way when she decides to play Passengers on him and steals the admit cards of them both. This paves a way towards them to spend an entire day together and later become friends.
As soon as they step out of the school premises, craziness begins to seep in and we hit peak of the film. This is where senior citizens dance in the streets in red colored tracksuits, women with bob cut hair create ‘art’ with people wearing pastel outfits, kids start acting like adults and the very adults start to act like kids. Throughout all of this, the cinematography of the film continues to stay exquisite. Gorgeously symmetrical wide shots make for almost 90% of the run time and letters and random items land right in the middle of your screen. And there are so many people in costumes. While one dresses up as a bush in a forest, another one goes on to put on a bear’s mascot suit at a club and the very choir kids go ahead to put on the joker’s red nose. It all looks very pretty and gives you a tonne of lovely screenshots for your film review which you will be tempted to write after watching this classic, but other than that, it serves small purpose. Interesting enough? Watch now to explore the odds!

It is heartening to see the likes of Director/Writer Dr. Abhishek Shukla venturing into making futuristic movies such as Social Media Murder Society that reflects the current situation in broad light and hence he deserves all the applause and encouragement for his vivid perception of the current times.
One of a kind, this movie is a refreshing change from the routine of Bollywood romance or comedy and is sure to set the audience thinking as well as potentially lead them to re-think their strategy or views towards application and utilization of social media."
