Directed by Aditya Dhar, ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ is based on the surgical attacks of 2016. The plot sheds light on the numerous terrorist attacks that took place on the Indian side of the Line of Control (LOC), which eventually prompted the government to plan the surgical strikes.
We meet a very motivated major Vihaan Singh Shergill played by Vicky Kaushal, actor Paresh Rawal is seen as National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, while Yami Gautam portrays the role of an intelligence officer.
The movie collected around Rs 8 crore on the first day of its release, which also indicates that the movie will mark a good impact over the box office collections on weekends. “Uri had a pretty good opening day of around 8-8.25 crore net. This is a very good number considering the face value of the film though if we compare with the films of last year then the value is less,” stated Box Office India.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted his review on the film by calling it ‘IMPACTFUL’ as a one word review.
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️½#Uri is one film that *should* be watched… Absorbing screenplay, superbly executed combat scenes, efficient direction [Aditya Dhar]… #Uri is thrilling, gripping, instills patriotism, without getting jingoistic. pic.twitter.com/tTkEE1H50u

Kaushal, in the beginning, leads a covert operation across the Myanmar border. He is much loved in his unit and thus his decision to get back to a relatively peaceful life in Delhi headquarters surprises many. We, of course, know that he will be back in the game soon, and the retaliation plan of Uri attacks gives him exactly the chance he was looking for.
Uri: The Surgical Strike has been released along with Anupam Kher starrer The Accidental Prime Minister which will disperse their audience. Simmba featuring Ranveer Singh still going strong and also giving a tough competition to yesterday released movies.
