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.
D-DAY tackles a knotty issue and it's imperative that Nikhil stays close to authenticity. The demanding plot and the edgy, gritty and raw situations, besides the ambience [recreating Karachi], makes this espionage thriller so different from the gangster films we have witnessed on the Hindi screen thus far.
On the whole, D-DAY is what a well-made thriller ought to be -- taut, transfixing and spellbinding, with an astounding finale. Don't miss this high-octane thriller!
And make no mistake, Nikhil Advani's sixth feature film is an acutely accomplished work of art. It's a thriller, yes. About the enforced extradition of a Dawood-like gangster.
So what is it we are looking at here? Go find out for yourself. With this one film, Advani joins the ranks of the most accomplished young filmmakers of Hindi cinema and by far Karan Johar's Dharma Productions proudest product.
Nikhil Advani dares to touch the unthinkable with his precious work of art into the presentation of unsung heroes who battle it out for an impossible mission.
With minute attention to the portrayal of each and every activity, Nikhil shows maturity as he understands his accountability to authenticity. He never misses a frame without perfect timing and detailing.
I’ll go with three stars for Nikhil Advani’s D-Day.
