The teaser pegs the return of Gadar's (2001) Jeetey, as the super intelligent student-cum-secret agent.
Genius teaser: Utkarsh Sharma arrives as the RAW genius at war with Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Since it was first announcement, Anil Sharma's Genius is being pegged as the stylish debut of Utkarsh Sharma and Ishita Khanna. While this will be the first big screen film for Khanna, Sharma was last seen as the little child, Jeetey, in Gadar: Ek Prem Katha (2001). That memory seems to hang over the latest teaser of Genius like a cloud.
Sharma plays a genius student who only wants one thing in life, love. The teaser opens with the sight of the little Jeetey in the arms of Sunny Deol's glowering Tara Singh. The scene then cuts to the young Sharma making his entry in style at a swanky foreign looking university. The teaser also captures the eccentricities of his eponymous 'genius' who can solve Rubik's cube without looking at it, and create science experiments.
But the genius runs into trouble when he is recruited by RAW for a mission against Nawazuddin Siddiqui's criminal mind. He ends up losing his team. That's where he decides to use his intelligence to plot revenge.
Genius is produced by Anil Sharma Productions and Soham RockStar Entertainment. The film is set to be released on 24 August.
