There are movies which are blessed with a trusted star cast, a
reputed director and an interesting subject. Despite this well made
potpourri, they somehow fail to make an impact. Sadly, D-Day belongs
to this category. Owing to its ineffective treatment, it fails to
leave an impression upon you.
D-Day directed by Nikhil Advani starts on a promising note with
four RAW undercover agents about to put the last nail in the coffin
and nab the most wanted man of India, played by Rishi Kapoor
(Goldman). From a moment of crescendo into that high octane action
scene, the movie goes into a flashback to establish the four
characters and Operation Goldman narrated by Irrfan Khan (Wali).
Wali has been living a double life in Pakistan for the last nine
years to keep an eye on Goldman and has a wife with a child. Rudra
(Arjun) is a suspended Army officer who is a mean killing machine,
Zoya (Huma) is on the verge of a break up with her husband and is an
explosive expert, and Aslam (Akash) is disguised as a chauffeur for
Goldman who earlier was a petty thief in India.
When the mission fails, all the agents are left to fend for
themselves and thrive under challenging circumstances. What ensues is
a cat & mouse game between these agents and Pakistan. Thrown in is an
out-of-the-box love angle between Rudra and a harlot (Shruti Hassan).
