Here is the god of the millennials, standing before a century delivering his dialogues like he owns them. Nawazuddin Siddiqui has carved out his niche in the industry with nothing but excellent acting skills and remarkable performances. The Sacred Games star will feature alongside Utkarsh Sharma in the upcoming thriller- Genius. Yes, we just used the reference to Siddiqui and thriller in the same sentence. Excited yet? The trailer was released and here is what we thought about it.
It is action packed thoroughly and we know what the basic plotline is- Utkarsh Sharma is an engineering student whose love for the country is immense. Don’t worry this is definitely not another of your patriotic movies that are released either on the 26th of January or 15th of August every year are forgotten about the very next day. No, this is not your ordinary thriller as well. Nawazuddin is apparently the villain, and he is exceptionally good at that. Utkarsh joins the Special Forces and undertakes a mission during which he has to face Siddiqui, his opponent of some sort. The film also stars Ishita Chauhan who will be Utkarsh’s love interest in the movie.

The movie is special for various reasons- it marks the debut of both Utkarsh and Ishita. We all remember a role Utkarsh had played in Anil Sharma’s historical cult movie Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. Now many strings of movies have dealt with RAW agents. But your RAW agent is no average man, he is fighting against his archenemy, Siddiqui. The film also has a considerable amount of romance on screen, with all its stock of cheesy Bollywood dialogues and gestures. Siddiqui is seen in the apparel of your typical gangster, long coats, hat and the classic moustache. Amidst all the filmy dialogues without which Bollywood would be a sad affair and the cat and mouse race, we witness a bit of nationalism as well.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui has very interesting projects lined up for him. He will be seen in two movies that are already hits – Thackeray and Manto because who else can play these prominent personalities with remarkable charm and finesse? Genius is all set to release on the 24th of August and we wish the entire team good luck.
