D-DAY REVIEW RATING * * * *

 

Wali Khan (Irrfan Khan) is a barber in Karachi. His family consist of his wife Nafeesa (Shriswara) and a son Kabir (Divji Handa). He was sent into Karachi, nine years ago from India by the Chief of RAW Ashwini Rao (Nasser) to report the activities of India’s most wanted fugitive Iqbal Seth (Rishi Kapoor). Rudrapratap Singh (Arjun Rampal), Zoya Rehman (Huma Qureshi) and Aslam (Aakash Dahiya) join Wali Khan for a mission that all but fails.
The story written by Nikhil Advani, is based on the lives of RAW agents. Performance-wise, Arjun Rampal, Aakash Dahiya and Irrfan Khan are brilliant. Huma Qureshi and Shuruti Hassan put in good acts. Rishi Kapoor, Nasser, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Sandeep Kulkarni, Nissar Khan and K.K.Raina are alright. Rajpal Yadav who appears in a song, is okay.


Though the script has been handled well by the director, what he did not realize perhaps because he was working from his own script was the fact that the film was too dark and bloody and therefore there could be nothing novel to be achieved using hackneyed treatment, patterns or clich├ęs. The dialogs by Ritesh Shah and Niranjan Iyengar are average. Musically, Shankar Ehsaan Loy stays with the mood of the film. Lyricist Niranjan Iyengar’s Alvida song is good in the film. Action by Tom Struthers and John Street are passable. The cinematography by Tushar Kanti Ray is superb. Aarif Khan and Unni Krishnan’s editing is brilliant. Production values are good. Technically, the film is sound. The publicity was average.
At the box office, the film has opened during Ramzan when a major chunk of the audience is away and will not succeed unless there is a huge upsurge of word of mouth publicity.

LOOTERA REVIEW, RATING : * * *


In 1953, an archaeologist Varun Shrivastav (Ranveer Singh) arrives in Manikpur and he meets the local landlord Soumitra Rai Chaudhury (Barun Chanda). Varun impresses the Soumitra and his daughter Pakhi (Sonakshi Sinha). There is a romance between Varun and Pakhi, but Varun must move on.  Varun disappears. Pakhi struggles to move on with her life. When they meet again, they are still in love. When Varun realizes that Pakhi will die soon, he comes up with a plan to sacrifice his life to save Pakhi.
The story is inspired from O. Henry’s THE LAST LEAF.  Vikramaditya Motwane  has made modifications to the story in his screenplay. Anurag Kashyap and Bhavani Iyer have written good dialogues for the characters. Performance-wise, Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha are first rate. Barun Chanda and Vikrant Massey are good. Arif Zakaria, Adil Hussain and Shirine Guha are brilliant. Divya Dutta is super in a cameo.
Director Vikramaditya Motwane meticulously paints the picture of a yesteryear romance and manages to extract the best out of his actors. The music by Amit Trivedi is good. The cinematography by Mahendra J. Shetty is fair. Production values are good. Technically sound. The publicity was good.
At the box office, the film is targeted at the multiplex audiences and is expected to pick up bu word of mouth over the weekend.
