Varmaa is the director Bala version of Tamil remake of Telugu Movie Arjun Reddy (Kabir Singh in Hindi).
A brilliant but short-tempered young surgeon goes down a self-destructive path of alcohol, drugs and violence when the love of his life is forced to marry another man after her family opposes their union.
Didn't feel the lag anywhere. Dhruv did excellent job. Eswari Rao character major plus in the movie and I like the connect of her character towards the end. Adithya Varma is way ahead than Varma in terms of genuine remake attempt to the original version and performances of Dhruv in many places which is missing in Varma because scene lengths are not same and shortened. So you may feel the intensity and impact missing in many places. Overall this version may not give you the genuine remake feel or the same impact, but if you keep aside original version and watch 'VARMA' it will not disappoint you for sure.
