Trailer of much awaited Tamil film Genius is finally out and it is hard hitting and emotional.Outline of the trailer gives us an idea that the movie is based on the life of Dinesh who becomes mentally unstable due to the overwhelming academic pressure since childhood. The trailer begins with a doctor explaining the mental disorder of Dinesh [Played by Roshan].Subsequent frame takes us back to his character’s childhood which sheds light on the root cause of all the trouble. Apart from the central issue,there is a routine romantic track in the film as well.
Overall, from the trailer it could be sensed that the movie is all about the adverse effects of academic pressure from home as well as from society. Even though this subject has been a part of so many films in the past decade,it has stayed relevant because the complexity of the issue is raising with every day. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background score manages to create an aura of sympathy for the character’s plight. Debutante actor Roshan looks impressive in the trailer.His attempt of playing a complex character here is commendable.
Genius is directed by Suseendran of “Azhagarsamiyin Kuthirai” fame. His last directorial “nenjil thunivirundhal” starring Sundeep Kishan and Vikrant in lead had received lukewarm response from the audience upon release. Known to be a sensible film maker, director has explored genres from crime thriller to sports drama. Fate of his new one will be known when it hits the theaters on 27th November.
