D-Day Cast: Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan, Arjun Rampal, Huma Qureshi, Shruti Haasan, Sriswara, Aakaash Dahiya, Nasser and Chandan Roy Sanyal
D-Day Director: Nikhil Advani
Nikhil Advani's 'D-Day' is a taut thriller that works at all levels. While his take on the Dawood like Don and his reign of terror is credible, the script is engaging and emotional drama heart-wrenching, making the film flawless.

D-Day story: 'Ye kahaani hai unki, jinhe bhoole dono jahaan,' Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's rendition plays out the underlying theme of the film. It's an ode to all those nameless agents working in the foreign land and belong nowhere when they need their country with them the most.

Four Indian RAW agents set out to arrest the most dreaded Don of Pakistan Iqbal Seth ala Goldman (Rishi Kapoor), who is the catalyst behind the series of terror activities happening in India. The character is loosely based on Dawood Ibrahim. Wali Khan (Irrfan) has made Pakistan his home and his fake world is made adorable by his wife and a son. Then there is Rudra Pratap Singh, (Arjun Rampal) who believes in 'no strings attached' kind of existence. His passionate involvement with a prostitute without even knowing her name shouts out the mystery of his existence. Zoya (Huma Qureshi) is the third angle while Aslam, who takes refuge in Don's kafila is the fourth wheel of this coup preparing to kill the Don.

D-Day doesn't give you even a single dull moment and there's not a loo break either. The script engages you and the well etched characters played by seasoned actors make you a part of this action thriller.

Having said that, D-Day makes an emotional connect too. Wali's pain while making a choice between his family and his duty touches you, Rudra's turmoil and his relationship with nameless prostitute played by Shruti Haasan is the most heart touching. 'Baat karu ya seedha kaam pe lagu,' asks Shruti to her detached client Rudra. But there's more to their relation than just detachment, which you come across in ‘Alivida’ song' when Arjun relives Shruti's dying moments without even being physically present there. The song chokes you and the impact is enormous thanks to the fine editing and cinematography.
Usually films loose out in the climax but in 'D-Day', the ending is equally charged and you are satisfied as you leave the theatre.

Performances in D-Day: Talk about performances and 'stellar' is the word that comes to mind. Rishi Kapoor as menacing and powerful Goldman is highly impressive. The man has finally arrived in his second innings. After playing Rauf Lala and now Iqbal, it won't be wrong to say that the loverboy of the 70s is the new Baddie to watch out for in Bollywood.

Irrfan Khan is on the top of his act yet again. It's a treat to watch an array of emotions expressed by the man in one film. Arjun Rampal is first grade as ruthless Rudra and Shruti leaves an impact in the small role. Together they have one of the most heart-wrenching, passionate and emotionally draining track.

Chandan Roy Sanyal as mean and evil nephew to Iqbal Seth makes you hate him.

Music of the film gels with the haunting theme of the film.

Verdict: All in all, D-Day is one of those rare films that grow on you - one of the best films of the year so far.

D-Day Rating: 4/5
