After the blockbuster film Gadar, director Anil Sharma is back with Genius film starring Utkarsh Sharma, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Mithun Chakraborty and Ishita Chauhan in the lead role. Utkarsh Sharma had earlier seen in Sunny Deol’s Gadar in the role of Jeete (Sunny Deol’s Son). Genius marks the debut of Utkarsh Sharma and Ishita Chauhan in Bollywood, the film released today in cinemas. Here are a full Genius movie review and rating.
The film begins with Vasudev Shastri (Utkarsh Sharma) who lives in Mathura. Vasudev mind works faster than a computer and manages to get into RAW even before he finishes his college. During this time, he meets his college mate Nandini (Ishita Chauhan), and the film went to flashback to telling us how the Vasudev and Nandini meet and separate. After that, his life takes a drastic turn with the entry of his rival MRS (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) who too considers himself a genius, but a mad one. There are lots of twists and turns in the story, and you will have to watch the movie to know what happens in the end.
Utkarsh needs to be more proficient in the field of acting. However, according to the first film, he has done a decent job. Nawazuddin Siddiqui remains inimitable. Ishita Chauhan fails to give a decent performance. In the initial sequences, she has just one expression on her face.
The story of the film is pretty well, but the direction & screenplay is poor. The climax of the film also seems the old type, and it fails to get any of this straight. Overall, This action-packed film fails to attract the audience.
