Movie Career
Sudheer Varma had a great start to his career in the film industry; he instantly rose to fame with his directorial debut, Swamy Ra Ra, a crime comedy Telugu film that released in March 2013. The film starring Nikhil Siddharth and Swathi Reddy in the lead roles received wide positive reviews from the critics with the hindu.com stating, "The film will pick-pocket your brain and you will most probably end up feeling richer, if not a millionaire." The film was later remade in Kannada as Jamboo Savari with Prajwal Devaraj and Nikki Galrani in the lead roles.

Following the huge success of Swamy Ra Ra, Sudheer Varma next directed a Telugu action crime film titled Dochay with Naga Chaitanya and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles. The film, which released in April 2015 had plenty of scenes that were copied from the popular British series Hustle. Whilst the movie had a lot of hype around it before its release, it failed to live up to its expectations and got average reviews. The film was later dubbed in Hindi as Vidroh - Let`s fight back.
