The science between the lead pair is irresistible. The always dependable Anil Kapoor is in excellent condition and shocks in another intriguing demonstration. He strolls the almost negligible difference between being showy and over-the-top effortlessly. Kunal Kemmu is true and astounding in equivalent parts.
