Adithya Varma‘s trailer starring debutants Dhruv Vikram and Banita Sandhu just dropped and it seems to be a perfect mix of its counterparts Arjun Reddy (original Telugu version starring Vijay Deverakonda) and Kabir Singh (Hindi version starring Shahid Kapoor). The movie helmed by Gireesaaya, a former associate of Sandeep Reddy Vanga who directed the original Arjun Reddy, is bankrolled by Mukesh Ratilal Mehta’s E4 Entertainment.
The trailer begins with Adithya Varma (Dhruv Vikram) standing by the sea barechested, with a voiceover about his substance abuse problem and rude nature. It then moves on to a health court judge questioning him about his state, before a surgery he performed. The trailer follows a non-linear pattern and we get to see Dhruv in both a smart and suave as well as a tough and fierce countenance. He is seen to be screaming out his beloved’s name, getting into brawls and yelling at his patients right through the trailer. There’s a ‘Nee swasikra style romba pudikkum’ (I like the way you breathe very much) line from Dhruv that just does not make the cut for us. Meera (Banita Sandhu) has her introduction exactly like the other leading women in the Hindi and Telugu version, but the jury is still out on if she can convince us with a demure performance. Blacksheep fame Anbu Thaasan who plays Dhruv’s friend features in the trailer along with Bagavathi Perumal, Leela Samson, and the labrador which accompanies him throughout.
E4 Entertainment took to Twitter to release the trailer and songs.
