Genius (Telugu: జీనియస్ ) is an upcoming Telugu film directed by Ohmkkar. It features Havish of Nuvvila fame and Sanusha in the lead roles. Made on a budget of Rs.11 crore, Genius features Havish, Sanusha, Ashwin Babu, Vinoth and Abhinaya in the lead, while Tamil actor R. Sarath Kumar will be seen in an important role. Composer Joshua Sridhar has given the music for the film, produced by Dasari Kiran Kumar. Ace writer Chinni Krishna, who has penned down stories for blockbuster Telugu movies, such as “Narasimha Naidu”, “Indra” and “Gangotri”, has written the film’s narrative.
Genius is the story of a young lad Nivas (Havish) who fights against the evil elements in the society. In due course, he takes the law in to hands and lets the justice prevail in a way he intends it to be right. Who are the people he counters? What problems he face in the process and how he overcomes them forms the core of the movie. The story has an inherent message which urges Youth to become role models instead of making others as role models.
This is the second film for Havish after Nuvvila. He played a subtle role in his first movie but in Genius, he played the role of Nivas which is intense. He could not carry it much. His expressions looked pale at several occasions. The person dubbed to Havish did a perfect job to match the intensity of the character but the voice did not match Havish’s feeble personality. Anyways, he has much to improve.
The new comer Sanusha as Siri does not do anything great.
Chinni Krishna who penned stories to several blockbuster movies like Narasimha Naidu and Indra had lend the story to this movie. There was so much of hype created behind terming it.
Ashish Vidyardhi as Peddapuram Peddababu, a noted action hero and his son, Chinna Babu (Master Bharath) managed few laughs. Brahmi does well too as Pappu. There are several other characters Senior actor Suman as Priest, Tamil Super Star Sharath Babu as police officer, Nagababu as a CBI officer, Annapurna as Middle class woman, Thagubothu Ramesh in his usual drunkard role have played their part well.
The back ground music is good and the songs are just average. The placement of songs is a major concern in the first half hampering the flow of the movie. They are just averagely pictured too.
Ohmmkar was a King Pin in small screen but that does not mean things will be a cake walk for him in the movies too. The direction is good in parts but he failed to interlude the scenes well. He seem to have got few scenes in hand and tried to stitch them together just for the sake of togetherness. There seem to be no connection at all whats so ever at many instances.
Diwakaran Raghunathan’s Camera work is okay. Grading and colouring is good. The lens man however did not try to do anything new in terms of technique.
1. Brahmanandham’s Aata and spoof of popular songs
2. India Pak Match scene
3. Spoof of Telugu heroes Peddababu and Chinna Babu
1. first half of the movie seems irrelevant and boring
3. Quality of the songs and their placement
4. The performance of the lead pair
What about its box office prospects:
Genius Movie ReviewThere can not be any half chances. Ohmmkar made a mess of it. The movie was reportedly made with a budget excess of 10C. There is no chance of even making half of it.
You Can Skip this for this week end and wait for the DVD
