8x10 Tasveer is a story of Jai, a young man in his 30's, who has a supernatural gift.
His father, Jatin, though, feels very strongly that his son is wasting his life away instead of managing the vast business empire he has created and this leads to a complete breakdown of relationship between the two.
Jai's wife Sheela is grudgingly supportive of her husband but has a 'real' job and is the actual bread- winner of the family.
Sometime later, Jatin is killed in a boating accident under mysterious circumstances and Jai feels wretched about losing his father and the times that could've been shared.
He accidentally stumbles upon the last photograph taken of the entire group of friends and family on the boat, minutes before the accident and while being consumed with grief and curiosity, he starts to investigate by undertaking the dangerous experience. He eventually unravels the mystery and in a nail biting finish comes up with a startling answer. The movie takes clues from "buterfly effect".
