Artists, Technicians Review
Nelson Dilip Kumar starts off the narration in a slow manner. But it picks up pace after the kidnapping incident. The first half passes off in a jovial, interesting and hilarious manner and the interval bang is good. Nelson generated immense fun with dark comedy and the metro train scene stands out. However seriousness creeps into the second half and with routine elements and dip in pace, brings down the graph. The story has shades of Nani's Gang Leader, Nelson's Kolamavu Koika and entertains with a race screenplay in the first half. Dialogues and witty one liners create a laughing riot. The film defies logic but one can ignore as it gives wholesome entertainment to some extent at least in the first half before losing its way a bit in the second half.
Siva Karthikeyan toned down his hilarious and mass antics and mannerisms to do a different genre role. He came with an expressionless face most of the time in a role completely new for him. Director Nelson showed Siva in a different role and he emerged successful in his attempt.However at times Siva Karthikeyan's expressions and physique became too rigid. Priyanka Arul Mohan did her role but she got limited scope to show her talent. Priyanka's character loses in the story as she is first shown as a strong lady with good judgement abilities but later turning dumb.
Vinay Rai who is known for his role in Villain, performed well as an antagonist in the film. Yogi Babu entertained with his comedy. Yogi Babu got good screen presence and Nelson used his talent to the optimum. Redin Kingsely stole the limelight with his hilarious performance. But fans of Siva Karthikeyan will be disappointed as Shiva's role didn't get any chance to enact comedy in the film. Nelson underused Milind Soman and Raghu Ram while others like Archana, Ilavarasu, Sunil, Deepa performed their roles accordingly.
Anirudh Ravichander's music is good. He made a powerful impact with his background music and elevated the scenes taking them to another level. Cinematography of Vijay Karthik Kannan used perfect camera angles to give a realistic feel to the film. Nirmal's editing is quite good but he could have fine tuned the second half a bit. Production values are good.

The combination of Siva Karthikeyan and Nelson Dilip Kumar generated interest among viewers. Varun Doctor first half takes viewers to a hilarious ride with dark comedy and when they are ready for a takeoff, the second half slips down drastically much to their disappointment. Had Nelson continued from where he left in the second half, without dip in comedy, Varun Doctor with a Spanish dark comedy flavor would have made a better impact. Considering these points, CJ goes with a 2.25 rating for Varun Doctor.
