D-Day Movie Review

D-Day (U/A)

Length:- 2 hrs 34 min

D-Day is based capturing India’s most wanted terrorist and bringing him back to India. Film conveys in-depth reality of the situation that exists in India while fighting against crime. Film is not slow unlike the similar films and it moves with a steady pace except short 15 minutes in the second half. D-Day tries to make predictable drama unpredictable and maintains your curiosity almost till the end.

Wali Khan (Irfan Khan) is there in Karachi for more than nine years as a hidden RAW agent. His wife & son are also not aware about his mission. He is supposed to work with Rudra Pratap Singh (Arjun Rampal), Zoya Rehman (Huma Qureshi) & Aslam (Akash Dhaiya). But soon there plan fails of capturing Goldman/Iqbal Seth (Rishi Kapoor) & they are being searched by Pakistan security force & Iqbal Seth men as well. Will they be able to accomplish the mission or all their efforts go in vain.

A small problem with the film is it throws so many details in terms of location, date & timings that seem distracting sometimes. D-Day cannot be compared with the films like Zero Dark Thirty because of the phenomenon of doing anything that exists in India & US is entirely different.

The action scenes of the film are realistic and intellectually conveyed. The Dark Knight Series action director seems to have done a good job. All the characters in the film are also seems to be properly connected. Also, the film shows a lot of actual places in Pakistan which makes it more realistic and enjoyable. Last Song in the film “Sitaare bhi jin ko”is absolutely stunning.

Irfan Khan again does a job in the film while Huma Qureshi doesn’t get much chance. Arjun Rampal seems to be confident enough while playing his role comfortably. Shruti Hassan has a short part to play & she is good in that. Rishi Kapoor brings reality in his character by his acting & his getup is good as well.

Ratings –    3 / 5 Stars

Verdict - Good
