An upper crust Indian wedding in the Kalra family in England.

Sunny Lalwani (Pulkit Samrat), his temper on a short fuse, is closer to Rohit Kalra (Jim Sarbh) than a sibling.

Dr Rohit Kalra whose brother Krish (Ankur Rathee) is the groom.

Unrelated to them are gangsters Kuljinder alias Kulli (Abhimanyu Singh) and his brother Pali (Harshvardhan Rane) who have their own personal tussles over Jahaan (Sanjeeda Shaikh), the girl Pali loves passionately but Kulli weds.

Unrelated but unfortunate that Sunny’s uncontrollable rage brings the equally angry and even more dangerous Pali into the Kalra celebrations.

Writer-director Bejoy Nambiar is an upgraded Anurag Kashyap, as raw, as punchy, but with more style, and less crude.

Except for the timelines going up and down which can be slightly confusing, Nambiar efficiently juxtaposes the sangeets and the champagne soirees of the Kalras with the ruthless goings-on in Pali’s family.

Without burdening the screenplay with back stories for anybody or for details on their professional operations, Nambiar conveys what he has to about the two families. Keeping it crisp, Nambiar uses Harshvir Oberai’s superb camerawork, a fine musical score from Raghav Sachar, Prashant Pillai, Govind Vasantha, Enbee and Gaurav Godkhindi, and nimble editing by Priyank Kumar Prem, to bring Sunny, Pali and Rohit to a gut-wrenching confrontation. Spread over six short episodes, three intense performances keep the grip on the viewer. Top of the line is Harshvardhan Rane, perfectly chiselled as passion-oozing Pali. Unbridled passion for his woman, unchecked passion for revenge.  Pulkit Samrat with his matchstick-in-a-gunpowder-factory rage which is the root of all the trouble, is a surprise.  Funny when he has to be, angry when he shouldn’t be, Pulkit makes Sunny wholesome. Jim Sarbh, always efficient, is like a chameleon as he swiftly changes shades. Although Sanjeeda Shaikh as Pali’s Jahaan, Kriti Kharbanda as Rohit’s Pakistani live-in partner Aarfa and Zoa Morani as Krish’s bride Mahi carry themselves with elegance, they remain the support staff to the three male leads. But their presence gives visual relief and has links with the main story. If you’re comfortable with violence, watch Bejoy Nambiar’s well put together crime and romance story.
