5 Vijay Varma Performances To Watch If You Liked Him In ‘Mirzapur’ 2

Vijay Varma has been in the spotlight after delivering a double whammy last month. The actor was a part of two major OTT releases, Amazon’s Mirzapur 2 and Netflix’s A Suitable Boy, and impressed all with his performances in both. He essayed a double role in Mirzapur 2, playing Bharat and Shatrugan Tyagi, scions of a crime family based in Bihar. In A Suitable Boy, he played Rasheed, a schizophrenic Urdu teacher.

Born in a Marwadi family in Hyderabad, Vijay is the youngest of three siblings. After his post-graduation, he moved to Mumbai to pursue his acting aspirations. He dabbled in theatre for a while and then made his way to the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII). His first acting job was in Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s short film Shor (2008), which was critically acclaimed and won the Best Short Film at the MIAAC Festival in New York.

Here are five performances, besides Mirzapur and A Suitable Boy, where Vijay Varma won us over.

‘Chittagong’ (2012)

Bedabrata Pain’s period drama may not have set the box office on fire, but it did garner great critical reception. In a stellar ensemble cast comprising Manoj Bajpayee and Nawazuddin Siddiqui among others, Vijay Varma made a mark as Subodh Roy aka Jhunku, a young man torn between his commitment to the freedom movement and the wishes of his pro-British father.

‘Monsoon Shootout’ (2013)

Monsoon Shootout was a noir crime drama that gave Varma his first lead role. He plays Adi, a rookie cop who locks horns with a dreaded gangster in his very first assignment.

‘Gully Boy’ (2019)

Gully Boy was probably the film that really brought the limelight on to Vijay Varma. His portrayal of Moeen Arif, a shrewd yet empathetic street hustler bagged him nominations for the best supporting actor at the Filmfare awards as well as the Screen awards.

‘She’ (2020)

The Netflix original series is a crime drama revolving around Bhumi, a female constable who goes undercover as a sex worker to bust a drug ring. Vijay Varma plays Sasya (pictured above), a gangster who finds himself seemingly obsessed with Bhumi. Aaditi Pohankar and Varma’s chemistry in the series was much talked about. Read our review here.

Is Amazon Prime’s ‘LOL: Hasse Toh Phasse’ Funny Enough?

Amazon Prime Video’s ‘LOL: Hasse Toh Phasse’ puts together ten popular Indian comedians for the mother of all challenges. While locked inside an extravagantly designed house, they must each make the other contestants laugh through sketches or other material, without bursting into laughter themselves. Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani act as the ‘Big Brothers’, keeping an eye out from a den-like enclosure for even the slightest of chuckles from the contestants.
