vsrawat Rated puzzle: Moderate Best completion time: 12:33 Time on first attempt: 1:29:29 Used 'show wrong moves'
couldn't find obvious next moves, so had to resort to trial and error and iterations.

Edited -
Got it.
In Left bottom set of 6, sum of two defined cages 3 and 18 is coming as 21, which is the total of 1-2-3-4-5-6 = the sum for the entire set of 6.
So, the one cage pushing in this set of 6 from outside R5C2, has to be the same number which has to be in the one cell going out from this set of 6 from the cage of 13 R6C3. otherwise the totals of two sets of 6 at bottom wouldn't come to 21.
As the possibility for R6C3 is 256, the same has to be in R5C2.
that helped in solving it quickly.

Thanks for a lovely game.

Vsrawat It gets easier as you learn combinations. Just remember that in 6x6 puzzles
each row or column must add up to 21, as must each 6 unit block. Also use the pencil marks!

Here I used the total in each 2x3 unit is 21; top left and bottom right units give a result and the rest follows straightforwardly. Also useful, of course, in 9x9 puzzle where each 3x3 totals 45. Your deduction about 2 digits having to be equal is also useful, vsrawat, but I didn't have to use it here.
