Naren had done his role excellently well. We had seen him doing a similar role in “ Nanban” and he fits in the role perfectly. Meera comes as a lovable mother. Priya’s performance is soothing. Singampuli, Jayaprakash and the others had done their roles well. Roshan, the hero, had performed hyper in some scenes and looked dull in some scenes.
When we hear that the film is directed by Suseenthiran, we have a hope that his script, screenplay and the stars wouldn’t disappoint us. But, in Genius, Susee’s script is good, but the star selection is not. Roshan is not an apt choice. He might have chosen this tough role, after a couple of films. Others stars are good at their work. The cinematography is colorful and it impresses and the music by Yuvan is good. Vilayadu Magane song attracts.
What’s Not There?
Genius comes with a good message. With the lack of performance from the lead actor, the film becomes a tedious watch, even though the rest of the stars had rendered an appreciable work. Genius – Not A Genius Attempt!
