Abhinav Bothra

Born in 1990 Abhinav Bothra is a Magician & Mentalist from Kolkata, India. Just like every other kid, he too had a fascination for magic during his childhood days, but unlike many the fascination sustained within him while growing up.

Back in 2010 he took up this art seriously and actually started learning things rather than simply buying self-working props. Initially his focus was just on Card Magic but soon he also shifted his attention to Mentalism and it didn't take a long time since he started working as a semi-pro.

An admirer of Richard Osterlind, Banachek & Daniel Garcia, he is currently (2014) a Business Law student as well as a working Magician & Mentalist.

Audacious ACAAN by Abhinav Bothra

An ACAAN for stage and parlor performers.

In short: The performer asks 3 participants to name a suit, a number and a value. Next invites one of the participants to deal down the cards. And like it should be, the named card lies at the named number.

Here are the details:

1. The performer asks an audience member (1st participant) to name a suit. The participant does so.

2. Next, the performer moves towards the 2nd participant to name a number (value) between 1 and 10 he unboxes the deck. But then he suddenly remembers that he needs to give out a notepad and pen to record the choices...

The Fortuitous ACAAN by Abhinav Bothra

A virtually self-working ACAAN with plenty of audience involvement.

We all know whenever the audience tries to reverse engineer or recreate a trick and fail at it; they conclude with a common statement - He must have done something sneaky.

The Fortuitous ACAAN works to counter just that. It brings wonder out of the hands of the performer at the same time ensures that the control always rests with him. Here is how it goes:

A deck gets shuffled by 4 people while 3 other people decide on the Number, Value and Suit. The shuffled deck gets collected and the cards get dealt face-up and the...

Stratagem by Abhinav BothraStratagem is a 3 phase modular routine using a regular pack of playing cards. It is easy enough for a month old beginner and at the same time delivers an impact of an expert. Each phase of Stratagem stands on its own and at the same time builds upon the previous one.

Phase I (CAAN on Steroids) :: A crossbreed of 'Do As I Do' and 'Card At Any Number'. CAAN not just once but twice - once in the hands of the performer and the other time in the hands of the participant with zero sleights involved. Each time all the decisions are made by the participant.

Phase II (Remote Viewing) :: With your...

Caantastic by Abhinav BothraFor decades magicians are on a quest to perform Any Card At Any Number from a borrowed and shuffled deck; which isn't always possible so they often settle for Card At Any Number.

The problem is that Card At Any Number when presented as a one-time feat can be mistaken as a co-incidence or the skill of the performer which takes away the feeling of it being pure magic. Caantastic counters just that by creating a mother of all co-incidences moment for the audience. Card At Any Number not just once or twice but thrice and when it happens the third time it dilutes any skepticism and evokes the...

Timeline by Abhinav BothraTimeline is a 3 minute short, scripted and theatrical close-up act using a borrowed deck of playing cards.

With only 2 basic sleights and your script you're able to make people feel that they're watching an expert at work. You tell a short essay on time and magic happens almost by itself while the essay is being narrated.

Each action and revelation is perfectly supported by the script. Here are the opening lines - "If there is one thing no-one can escape from – it is time. In fact even if you go out into the space or deep under water, you’re still dominated by time because your oxygen...

Coalesce by Abhinav BothraCoalesce is a scripted 30 minute act of prediction, pseudo-hypnosis, mind reading (both by performer as well as the participant).

It only needs:

  • A deck of cards, a marker and 2 extra jokers
  • An envelope with 3 minutes of preparation (no arts and crafts)
  • A close-up pad
  • A table and 3 chairs
Back in 2016 I published 3 short e-books – A Thought Covertly Conveyed (ATCC), A Thought Stumbled Upon (ATSU) and A Thought Left Unsaid (ATLU). The similar names were intentional because they all were part of an act (note : part of an act) – Coalesce is that act.

The Empirical ACAAN by Abhinav BothraLove it or hate it but most of the numerous versions of ACAAN out there end up in the same ball park -- look what I can do or I manipulated your choices without your knowledge or simply as a coincidence. The Empirical ACAAN drifts from all of that, here is an ACAAN that makes people connect to each other. An ACAAN that is not about you but about the audience with virtually no sleight involved.

What’s great is that 70% of the times you'll have a hands-off / clean ACAAN and for the rest 30% you have to do something logical which is covered by the presentation to make it look like a hands-off...

Crisis by Abhinav Bothra
  • To stay economical at those unpaid charity gigs we all do
  • To be less dependent on the facilities offered at small venues everyone at some point of time performs at
  • To tackle the unfortunate lost-luggage situations that can happen anytime
  • To have a compact yet expandable show for unexpected impromptu gigs
And lots of such other circumstances are the reason behind the existence of Crisis.

Crisis is a 20-30 minutes of semi-scripted and field tested set of mentalism (predictions and mindreading) with nothing except a 3x3 inch post-it pad and a marker and 3 minutes of preparation (no arts...

Business Cards by Abhinav Bothra8 excuses to hand out business cards

Accurate - Based on Andrew Gerrad's Accuracy, it's different but impromptu. 3 objects are hidden one in each hand and one in a card box. And the performer deduces the location of each of those objects.

Brief But Accurate - Accurate made short but still effective

B4 Esperience - This is how Esperience used to look like before what it is now.

Dismantle - Spectator reads the thoughts of another spectator.

Haptic - A fun little piece that deals with unconscious cognition and utilizes your sense of touch

Pinned up Memory - Spectator stumbles...

A Thought Stumbled Upon by Abhinav BothraA couple of people are invited to participate in a trick - any 4 of a kind gets chosen, one of the 4 cards is then given to Participant no. 1 by Participant no. 2. Participant 1 who has no knowledge of the card in his hand correctly deduces the suit and then the value of the card.
  • Borrowed and Shuffled Deck.
  • No Forces.
  • Easy to do.
Honest Notes:
  • This needs a table or a working surface.
  • A fact (stated twice in the patter), a phrase and the casualness of the performer's is what makes this possible.
  • Included in here is the script (fully customizable) and a short video (download from...

A Thought Covertly Conveyed by Abhinav BothraA hybrid of a card trick and the plot spectator as mind reader dressed in the clothes of hypnosis.

Spectator 1 selects a card and places it back in the deck which is then put into the box. Spectator 2 is asked to close his/her eyes and is put through a simple process at the end of which he/she names the card.

Honest Notes:

The card is a force card (any card among the 52 will do) and it is conveyed through some physical factors supported by the script.

In here you'll find my script in English, which can easily be adapted to any language and is not bound by any particular word/s. And...

A Thought Left Unsaid by Abhinav BothraA thought of card is conveyed to everyone (without writing down or uttering a single word) while the performer has his back towards the audience.

Once done, the performer turns back asks a couple of unrelated questions and hesitatingly pulls out a single card from a deck of playing cards. And that happens to be their thought of card.

  • No stooges or confederates
  • Borrowed deck
  • Angle proof (can be done surrounded)
  • Super easy to do
