are you getting the correct value in var a before you form your UPDATE SQL

Don't do it like that! Never concatenate strings to build a SQL command. It leaves you wide open to accidental or deliberate SQL Injection attack which can destroy your entire database. Always use Parameterized queries instead.

When you concatenate strings, you cause problems because SQL receives commands like:
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE StreetAddress = 'Baker's Wood'
The quote the user added terminates the string as far as SQL is concerned and you get problems. But it could be worse. If I come along and type this instead: "x';DROP TABLE MyTable;--" Then SQL receives a very different command:
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE StreetAddress = 'x';DROP TABLE MyTable;--'
Which SQL sees as three separate commands:
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE StreetAddress = 'x';
A perfectly valid SELECT
A perfectly valid "delete the table" command
And everything else is a comment.
So it does: selects any matching rows, deletes the table from the DB, and ignores anything else.

So ALWAYS use parameterized queries! Or be prepared to restore your DB from backup frequently. You do take backups regularly, don't you?

Fix that throughout your app - and if you miss one, somebody else won't - and the problem you have noticed will vanish at the same time.

Trust me, what you are doing is wrong, and very dangerous. Fix it! Your problem will probably go at the same time.

If you don't listen to people when they tell you what to do, is there any point at all in asking a question? I'm pretty sure there isn't much point in me answering ...
1. The best way to get help is to use best-practices. Besides the security implications, it makes it a lot easier to read in this instance.

2. You didn't post the actual form so we can't tell what you got going on for the radio boxes

3. Try debugging and see what value is assigned to a.

This is a rough draft of what your code should look like:
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) {

    int RowsAffected = -1;
    if (radiomal.Checked) { a = radiomal.Text; }
    else { a = radiofem.Text; }

    string ConnInfo = "Data Source=;Initial Catalog=;Integrated Security=True";
    string CmdText = "UPDATE cust   SET [Nic No] = @NicNo, Name = @Name, Address = @Address, [Mobile no] = @MobileNo, gender = @Gender  WHERE [Custermer Id] = @CustomerID";
    using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConnInfo)) {
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(CmdText, conn);

        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@NicNo", txtnicn1.Text);
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Name", txtnam1.Text);
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Address", txtadd.Text);
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@MobileNo", txtcon1.Text);
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Gender", a);
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@CustomerID", txtcusid1.Text);

        RowsAffected = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
    MessageBox.Show(string.Format ("Your update affected {0} rows", RowsAffected));
