Genius, Movie Review: An Insult To Intelligence
one star


Genius is something that could have been avoided- conceptualising, executing and even reviewing! How can Anil 'Gadar'  Sharma make such a movie for his son? Obviously he had made a grand promise to Uttkarsh in his childhood, but I wish he had told him, 'Putar, mere se nahin ho payega'. So Daddy Dearest  yet went about it and the result is you run for cover. Genius is nothing but nothing.

No screenplay, no dialogues, no acting, no emotion, no songs... nothing to mention about. The film is dead on arrival. There's no story, either else I would have made the exception of breaking my rule of unravelling the content to fill up the emptiness which I am feeling while penning this. What happened, Mr Sharma?Aren't you the same man who made Hukumat, Gadar and Apne?

Rrring Rrring! Nawazuddin Siddiqui needs to be called up rightaway and asked that why he came on board of this abstract whatever. Very fat pay packet?



Mithun Chakraborty finds himself in many frames, but how much does his presence or lines (none to few) count in the scheme of things? Ayesha Jhulka is wasted. I don't know if Uttkarsh will feel terrible that you have let him down completely. The young man tries pretty hard, but finds no support in any department. Ditto for his ladylove, the debutante Ishita Chauhan. Both are left fending for themselves, high and dry. The inability of the maker to infuse nice romance makes it more tough for them. Himesh Reshammiya comes up with a bit of ho-ha-hum but how can only bells and whistles work? Will need a Uttkarsh 2.0  now for him to stay afloat in this fiercely competitive tinsel town. He should just brush this off as a genius, err, genuine accident and head to other directors. Oops, I am forgetting the meaning of genius!

And Mr Sharma, please come out of your Sunny Deol hangover which is so evident almost throughout the number of minutes that you drove us to despair, frustration and lunacy (in that order) with this one. Uttkarsh is driven to do a Sunny shouting so strongly, that at times he is given scenes which have him down with an ear problem so that his screaming exemplifies conviction. Need to resume normal life again, will I?

Sorry, I cannot go beyond ONE.
