It is sexy, it is action packed, it is not depicting the normal day-to-day of anyone I know and the occurrences keep one interested scene after scene. Good acting too. The two leads have such chemistry. Well done!

Whenever i watch a movie i look for cast,quality of filming etc... But what i care about the most is if it touches our soul somehow. Especially if it's drama and this one really touched it.
