D-Day, the movie

Saw this movie with wifey today morning at 10.00 a.m. show when the prices are down. Surprised to see not more than 20 persons in the theatre despite it being a mini theatre in a multiplex. Well, Indo-Pakistan rivalry and Dawood Ibrahim have given many a script to Bollywood to fantasise about and every one is different. This one looks at a covert operation to flush out the operative from their soil and bring him to our soil. The film is taut and narrative is fast paced and does not slag in between with slo-mos or the mandatory item songs or skin shows, – there are about 3 songs but they are well interposed with the story line. There is a beautiful ghazal sung by Rekha Bharadwaj composed to music by Shankar, Ehsan Loy which is mesmerising. Of the cast Shruti Hasan stands out for her brilliant acting as the nautch lover of the Indian infiltrator. The girl has the looks and the acting genes to go places provided she chooses her roles well in future. This one lass to watch out for in future. Of the other characters we have come to expect nothing but the best from Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor and they provide that as well but Arjun Ramphal is the one who impresses the most with his angst ridden role of an Indian soldier. Not revealing the plot too much this movie is a must watch for those who have just viewed Bhag Milkha Bhag because it carries the Indo pak rivalry one step further. It is also a primer to the Indian intelligence on how to infiltrate and usurp the most wanted one!!
