At first glance, the film looks an interesting, gritty, action-packed spy thriller. It has Irrfan Khan playing Wali, a RAW agent on a mission in Karachi to keep an eye on India’s most wanted man (Rishi Kapoor). Kapoor’s character is clearly modeled on Dawood Ibrahim.
“Duniya mujhe terrorist samajhti hai. Janaab, main toh business karta hoon,” says Rishi Kapoor with a deadpan expression.
Arjun Rampal plays officer Rudra Pratap Singh of Indian Armed Forces, MARCOS unit. Huma Qureshi plays Zoya Rehman RAW Explosives expert and Aakash Dahiya plays Aslam, petty thief from the streets of Mumbai, recruited by RAW to infiltrate Pakistan and join Wali Khan to carry out the mission to bring back The Most Wanted Man in India.
However, things don’t go as planned and the most daring mission to snare India’s most wanted goes horribly wrong.
D-Day stars south actor Nassar as RAW chief. Shruti Haasan plays an important role. Music is by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
