What Are The Odds turns one: Megha Ramaswamy and team look back at ‘odd squadding’
The 2020 Netflix film follows a day in the lives of two teenagers in Mumbai
What Are The Odds, a Netflix film about a day in the lives of two teenagers from Mumbai, turned one today. The film is directed by Megha Ramaswamy and stars Yashaswini Dayama, Karanvir Malhotra and Abhay Deol. The extended cast includes Monica Dogra, Priyanka Bose, Manurishi and Sulbha Arya.
Reminiscing about the film's journey, Megha shares, “One Year since our bundle of many joys saw the light of day! It has really been a year full of odd squadding. I cherish every message song and work of art that has poured in from all over. If there was something that kept us hopeful, it was love.
She gushes about the fan art that has poured in for the film.
“Everyday the outpour of many people/artists creating their piece of art using stills from the film, writing poems, singing covers... it still feels surreal! We are all such a close knit community of friends now. I am thankful I got an opportunity to work with a wonderful cast and crew! This is the start of something special.”
Yashaswini remembers the busy run-up to the film’s release. “It just feels like yesterday that we were promoting this film, recording bytes, doing our press rounds and adapting to Work From Home. And here we are, one year to release but still at home. These are very challenging times and we are all trying to get by.”
Karanvir adds, “Well there obviously isn’t any celebration as such but it feels good to know that our colourful little film brought some cheer and inspired plenty to dream out loud!(DOL! Is that a term yet?)"
