Storyline

The plot of Genius begins with a failed mission in Porbandar that cripples RAW agent Vasudev, also known as Vasu Shastri (Utkarsh Sharma). The man still has a strong sense of patriotism, though, as evidenced by the fact that he pursues a speeding convoy on a bicycle while one of his feet is limping in order to correct an upside-down tricolour on a politician’s vehicle. Vasu decides to take matters into his own hands and finish the task at hand after being called “incompetent” by his superiors.

But first, the movie cuts to a flashback and places us on the campus of the IIT because, well, our hero is supposed to be smart, right? He must therefore enrol in a prestigious institution within the nation. Meanwhile, Genius is here to dispel the myth that there isn’t much romance in engineering colleges for all those boys who complain about it. When Utkarsh first sets eyes on Nandini (Ishita Chauhan), it is love at first sight for him. To win over the leading lady, he starts his prem-leela. But sorry, bad luck, my friend! Vasu finally decides to join RAW after the woman of his dreams breaks his heart. He has no idea that the arrival of his arch-enemy MRS (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), who also views himself as a genius but a mad one, will cause his life to take a dramatic turn.
