Filmmaker Anil Sharma’s son Utkarsh has finally marked his Bollywood debut with ‘Genius’. Anil has given us films like ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’ so naturally expectations were high from him. But does he or his son Utkarsh live up to our expectations? Let’s find out…


‘Genius’ is an action-thriller, and its story has been written by the director himself. Vasudev Shastri (Utkarsh Sharma), who hails from Mathura is a very bright student in a way you can call him a ‘genius’. He is so brilliant that, RAW Chief Jayshankar Singh (Mithun Chakraborty) hires him to work for them.

Vasu is madly in love with Radhika (Ishita Chauhan) but nothing can come between the love he has for his country. Vasu is on a mission to destroy MRS (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), who is a threat to the country. But MRS himself is quite a genius. Does Vasu succeeds in his mission? Now for that, you will have to watch the film.


Utkarsh Sharma, who had worked as a child artist in Sunny Deol’s ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’, has really done a good job. Even powerhouse performers Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mithun Chakraborty have done full justice to their respective characters. Actress Ishitha Chauhan looks pretty but fails to impress with her acting prowess.


The film’s music is composed by Himesh Reshammiya. Overall it’s good but there is hardly any songs that has a recall value.

What’s Good

Utkarsh and Nawazuddin’s performance is terrific. There are several exotic locations in the film that will leave you amazed.

What’s Bad

The film’s plotline has been stretched unnecessarily. There is nothing novel in the film’s theme.

Final Verdict

You won’t be missing much if you decide to skip this film.
