बेहद समझदार -Behad samajhdAr


Explanation:
Since you are looking for a simple or colloquial equivalent, I am making the abovementioned suggestion.

A genius is a person with distinguished mental prowess. This can manifest either as a foremost intellect, or as an outstanding creative talent. The term does specifically apply to mental rather than athletic skills.

TALENT does what it CAN.
