Movie Review: D-Day

D-Day takes you to the world you haven’t been before. While you have seen many thrillers, this one is different from those, it uses references to many real life instances. The film is about four leads, Arjun Rampal (Captain Rudra Pratap Singh), Irrfan Khan (Wali Khan), Huma Qureshi (Zoya Rehman) and Chandan Roy Sanyal all with varying back stories who come together in Pakistan to bring back India’s most wanted terrorist Rishi Kapoor (Iqbal). It explores the foursome’s journey, choices, loss, and victory While on this mission, everything that can go wrong, does.

Story of D-Day is written brilliantly. Direction of the movie is very good. Screenplay could have been better according to me. They’ve failed to hold the flow of the movie at some places in the first half. The film carries few dull moments too. Length of the movie is a bit long. But anyhow, story will hold you during the movie. Performances of all leads are very good. Arjun Rampal, Huma Quireshi and Irrfan Khan have given excellent piece of acting. I didn’t like comic image of Rishi Kapoor which is playing the most wanted terrorist in the movie. First half has two songs which are unnecessary, just lengthening the script. Second half is very good and a bit unpredictable. I loved the climax a lot. It caters the Hope of New India!

Background score is average, music is good. Alvida song is composed and directed brilliantly! I am giving half entire star to this song.


9 years ago Wali Khan (Irrfan Khan) was sent into Karachi, Pakistan by the Chief of RAW Ashwini Rao (Nasser) to report the activities of The Most Wanted Man in India. 9 days ago Rudra Pratap Singh (Arjun Rampal) Indian Armed Forces, MARCOS unit, Zoya Rehman (Huma Qureshi) RAW Explosives expert, and Aslam, a petty thief from the streets of Mumbai recruited by RAW, infiltrated Pakistan to join Wali Khan and carry out the mission to bring back The Most Wanted Man in India. The man who was going to break all ISI protocol and security and attend his own son’s wedding. The man who could on that day be abducted and brought back to India to face justice. 1 day ago everything went according to plan until it all failed. The team sent in to bring The Most Wanted Man in India, did the unthinkable – they carried out the most daring operation and almost got away with it. Almost because, something went horribly wrong.


Brilliant story, very good direction and the climax caters Hope of New India. It’s a highly recommended movie from for all action thriller lovers. But if you are lover of comedy movies or love stories, this one is not for you!
