Yashaswini Dayama and Karanvir Malhotra play two teenagers who decide to take a day off from their exams and explore Mumbai instead. The first teaser from the upcoming film by Megha Ramaswamy shows the teenagers interacting and trying to forge relationships with the characters of Abhay Deol and Priyanka Bose.

The 35-second teaser features Vivek (Dayama) trying to strike up a conversation with Deol’s Val. Meanwhile, Ashwin (Malhotra) is navigating his own relationship with an older woman. Ramaswamy’s film sets up the action well, and peaks interest on how all the characters are connected to one another.

The film’s synopsis states: "A high-spirited teenager, Vivek commits a small and clunky crime as a mark of 'protest', which leads to her striking an unexpected friendship with well-behaved head boy Ashwin and playing truant from an important exam day. Things take a turn from ordinary to magical as the story unravels events from the past, present and future in the lives of these two misfits and the accidental encounters with Val that turns the mundane into a fairytale they are meant to tell."

What Are The Odds? is set in a “whimsical version of Mumbai” and will deal with the unusual friendship of Vivek and Ashwin. The film, which also stars Monica Dogra and Sulbha Arya, is expected to be released on an OTT (over-the-top) platform.

Deol, who plays Val, is also a producer on the English language film, which was screened last year at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA).
