Varma doesn't has intensity or soul of the original

While I could attribute disinterest on the part of Bala for most of the movie and did not mind going through the movie as a lazy watch, I really lost it during the climax that had a bunch of people in a park clap as Varmaa and Megha were engaged in a liplock!

Bala's Varmaa gets Arjun Reddy all wrong

Varmaa comes across as old-fashioned and even crass at times. It gets Arjun Reddy all wrong and the casting is way off the mark. Already let down by the writing, the actors hardly manage to breathe life into their characters. Megha Chowdhury is entirely miscast and there is zero chemistry between he...(more)
