Review this movie
Jul 20, 2013DDAY got some clicks, but the acting and pro- direction by Nikhil Advani is great and the pace keeps up like Black Hawk Down and other war movies. The fact is DDAY is more of an adult drama than an war movie. A mission impossible forms the crux of Nikhil Advani's D-Day. But the film's treatment of the story of derring-do, desperate measures and doom remains firmly within the realms of the possible. The director deserves full marks on that score.
D-Day is as far removed in terms of spirit and substance from Advani's debut feature and biggest success, Kal Ho Naa Ho, as any film could ever be. At any rate, it represents a marked improvement on Salaam-e-Ishq, Chandni Chowk to China and Patiala House. D-Day is a well-researched, purposefully executed film. Much of the action takes places in 'actual' Karachi locations the red light district of Napier Road, the busy thoroughfare of Empress Market and the environs of Qasim Port, among others. D-Day is replete with such unusual touches. It is another matter that all of them do not eventually come together to make a cohesive whole. Yet, for all its flaws, this is a film good enough to merit a trip to the multiplex.… Expand
