The story goes in this way- One powerful gangster, a few undercover agents and their only mission is to nab the former or kill him in encounter. Over the years, several filmmakers have churned out flicks based on the same concept. But, Nikhil Advani's latest release D-Day is unique and very well-crafted in it's own way. Not to ignore, D-Day repeats the old 'Dawood' formula, yet in such a new and creative manner. Featuring Arjun Rampal, Irfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor and Huma Qureshi in the leads, D-Day is based on the country's intelligence agency RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) and its operations to bring back the most wanted man in India.

Story:

D-Day's story is based on the life of a few RAW agents, who are sent on a mission by the Indian Government. Wali Khan (Irrfan Khan), Rudra Pratap Singh (Arjun Rampal), Zoya Rehman (Huma Qureshi) and Aslam (Akash Dhaiya) gets recruited by RAW, infiltrated Pakistan to nab the dreaded criminal Iqbal Seth (Rishi Kapoor).

D-Day: Movie Review

Everything was going according to the plan till that fateful day. The team carried out the most daring operation and almost got away with it. But, things go haywire and their missions fails. Now the question lies- Will Iqbal ever get nabbed?

D-Day boasts of a decent plot, overpowering performances and some soothing music. From storyline to plot execution, Advani does total justice to each sphere. What makes the movie more believable are the minute detailings and the emotional sufferings of a RAW agent, when he leaves his family in jeopardy for a mission.

Performances:

Over the years, Arjun Rampal has evolved as a great actor and his improved acting skills are visible in D-Day. Irrfan Khan needs no introduction when it comes to his amazing acting skills. Being such a good actress, Huma Qureshi's role somewhere seems a bit half-baked and incomplete. Shruti Hassan is expressionless and fails to do any justice to her role.

Verdict:

On the whole, D-Day is a well-made thriller, with some outstanding performances. The film excels in portraying the dark reality of the underworld, with an impressive end.
