Arjun Reddy was one of 2017’s commercial hits in Telugu cinema, while also establishing Vijay Deverakonda’s super stardom. The young, dynamic actor was highly impressive in as a doctor struggling with bipolar disorder, alcoholism and heartbreak. Arjun Reddy received high praise for the performances and the direction, though it was also criticised in the way the lead treats the women in his life. The movie has impressed Tamil superstar Chiyaan Vikram to chose it as a launchpad for his son, Dhruv.
So in Tamil, Arjun Reddy is now Varmaa, as Dhruv Vikram steps into Vijay Deverakonda’s shoes. The first trailer has been unveiled by Chiyaan Vikram’s colleague, Tamil superstar Suriya Sivakumar on January 9. He has tweeted, “Here’s to a promising career..!! @DhruvVikramOffl”.

Talking more about the trailer, it is a dialogue-less promo that is more invested in the emotions of the lead character, as he goes into a downward spiral after losing his love. Dhruv has nailed all the different looks of his character right, though he looks a bit too young even with that beard. Megha Chowdhury is the female lead, while Bigg Boss fame Raiza Wilson is also a part of the film.
Check out some of the reactions the trailer received :

Chiyaan you are a great actor no doubt but dont launch this kind of kiddos in the industry.
proper actor could have done justice to the role , this kid ruined it.#Varma
