Someday!!! We wish Someday!!!
22 July 2013 | by akshay kunderSee all my reviews

D-Day is a kind of step taken by Bollywood , wherein it shows nailing of the most wanted criminal of India. Perhaps, since it never happened so the movie makes you feel will this ever happen?

The story telling of the movie is very gripping, somehow the length(2 hrs 35 mins) is kinda draggy but its OK as the movie keeps the audience at the edge of their seat till the end. Its a welcome return of director Nikhil Advani whose last couple of films have met drowning ends. Technically , D-Day is one of the brilliant movies to come in recent times.

Music is at its place as the timing of "mast kalandar", "Alvida" and "Dhuan" is perfect and make you feel the situation.

Performance wise Irffan stands out as Wali Khan. Rishi Kapoor enacts role of 'Goldman' Iqbal in a confident way and we feel that he is transforming even today. Arjun is superb as rough Rudra. Huma qureshi's performance is great as usual. Akash Dahiya as Aslam is a performer to watch out too. Shruti Hasan does great justice to the cameo kind of role in the movie. Chandan Roy Sanyal as nephew of Iqbal is flawless. Nassar and Sandeep Kulkarni in their brief appearances are solid.

D-Day will appeal to the kind of audience who like watching movies made with realistic approach. Its a blend of all in one. A movie which deserves a watch.

Rating : 9/10
