Anil Sharma, director of films like Gadar and Hero: Love Story of a Spy, is back with his new movie Genius. Genius stars Anil’s son Utkarsh Sharma and Ishita Chauhan in the lead roles. The two newcomers are joined by Mithun Chakraborty, Ayesha Jhulka and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.From the trailer, Genius seems to continue the director’s tradition of loud, bombastic action movies with a heavy dose of desh-bhakti. Mithunda starts off the trailer by extolling the virtues of a true genius (hint: it’s not just being smart.) Utkarsh plays a brilliant college student who is eventually revealed to be, in fact, a RAW agent. While in college he parrots a curious mixture of Sanskrit and Chemistry, on duty we see him protect the country by rescuing an Indian flag from a hail of bullets.Towards the end, we are introduced to Nawazuddin who plays the film’s antagonist, a cross between a classic Bollywood terrorist and a Bond villain. Frankly, the Sacred Games-star seems to be having fun, but you don’t have to be a Genius to wonder what he is doing in a film like this.Watch the trailer below.Genius is produced by Anil Sharma Productions and Soham RockStar Entertainment. The film is set to release on 24 August. We'll get through this! Meanwhile, here's all you need to know about the Coronavirus outbreak to keep yourself safe, informed, and updated.
