The men unleash the brutal side and battle it out to win their lady love.
Here 'it' does not refer to 'brutal side'.Am I right?
It is difficult to root for the characters even as the actors score.Tiger's back flips may make you cheer and his stunts have gotten dishier since Heropanti, but that's about it.
