    d-day

    What happens when four Indian agents plan to bring India’s most wanted criminal home from Pakistan?

    Nikhil Advani, the director of romantic-family films such as Kal Ho Na Ho (2003), Salaam-E-Ishq (2007) and Patiala House (2011) churns out a high voltage action thriller this time with an unbelievable and next-to-impossible storyline.

    Arjun Rampal

    Four Indian agents (Irrfan Khan, Arjun Rampal, Huma Qureshi and Aakash Dahiya) enter Pakistan to bring home Iqbal Seth (played by Rishi Kapoor) a Dawood Ibrahim kinda don who is hated for his terrorism activities, which he insists on calling a ‘business’.

    The story unfolds when the hunters becoming the hunted and Nasser, playing Ashwini Rao the RAW director, is convincing as an official straining at the leash.

    Nikhil Advani is a very good Director, but this time he chooses a film which is not convincing at all.

    The camera work and production values are amazing. The editing part is very weak overall.

    The music of the film does not worth a listen. However, the Background score goes with the flow.

    D-Day can be touted as a good time-pass action thriller. Review Scores by Faisal Saif

    Talking about the performances, veteran Rishi Kapoor enacts the part of Iqbal Seth marvellously. His at-ease manipulations, his eyes behind red goggles, which scare the hell out of you, are simply superb.

    Irrfan Khan as Wali Khan is also outstanding. Arjun Rampal looks smashing and pulls off a competent act brilliantly. Huma Qureshi does well as a cutie-pie who can squeeze a knife real bad on the enemy.

    Aakash Dahiya is also good. Shruti Haasan does not look convincing at all as the prostitute. Somehow you feel Shruti is not comfortable in pulling off those lines and the whole act. Nasser as the RAW director is good.

    Nikhil Advani is a good director. But somehow D-Day has its loose ends, especially because of the unconvincing plot. D-Day also drags in many parts. The track between Arjun Rampal and Shruti Haasan looks out of the blue.

    The camera work and production values are terrific. The editing part is weak. On the musical note, there is no song in the film that will last in your head for a long time. The background score is good.

    D-Day can be touted as a good time-pass action thriller. But according to me, D-Day is neither debatable nor patriotic. The film is yet another attempt of targeting the neighbouring country. Despite of the presence of this huge star-cast, the film will have to face a huge opposition.
