Uri perfectly blends strong storyline with crisp plot and aptly suited star cast coupled with stellar performances.
We have seen a trend of Indian war based patriotic action films in Bollywood from the 90’s to present day with classic movies right from Border (1997), LOC Kargil (2003), to Rangoon (2017). Where some movies strike the right chord with audiences and film critics and some aren’t able to do that.
We thank Uri for being one such movie resonating nationalism and patriotism deep within every Indian and giving a visually appealing treat and novel experience to all the audiences.

Read Detail Review
The film has been produced by Ronnie Screwvala under the banner RSVP pictures. Uri is based on the Indian surgical strike in the year 2016 by Indian army in POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir). The story and plot is the hero of this film and the actors have literally lived their characters in a larger than life kind of a way on silver screen in the film.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Based on Indian surgical strike of year 2016 the plot of Uri is original, treatment is very solid and crisp, presentation has a wow factor, and executed smoothly. It’s a very relevant yet strongly moulded film with perfectly etched out characters where Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Kirti Kulhari, Mohit Raina and Paresh Rawal have literally stole the thunder and limelight by their mesmerizing acting, bang on dialogues, proper expressions.
It was an amalgamation of a phenomenal storyline with perfectly suited star cast. It actually gave out a strong message that India is not silent and tolerant anymore but is strong and will shut down Pakistan’s mouth by giving them a befitting answer in their language of surgical strike only.
Uri can be termed as a powerful film. It gave the viewers an edge of the seat experience coupled with the goosebumps. Every scene in the film was so realistic and genuine that audiences could really connect and relate themselves to the actual Indian Surgical Strikes that happened in 2016.
There was not even a single moment where we felt the story lost its connect as it kept audiences engaged and entertained with its story and characters throughout the film. It actually stayed true to its core of retelling the real incidents of Indian surgical strike of 2016 in form of a feature film.
Also another important part is that the action and combat in Uri is at par with the action witnessed in Hollywood films like GI Joe, Black Hawk down, and Saving Private Ryan. The story of Uri itself looks very gritty, tight, crisp and fantastically real.
Big hats off to director Aditya Dhar for doing an amazing and commendable job of showcasing and retelling the fable of courage and bravery by Indian army and armed forces with Uri.
Cinematography was very strong where each and every scene in film was looking very genuine, real, raw, aesthetically picture perfect and amazing and each and every detail in the film was given lots of attention by the director Aditya Dhar to make sure the main characters in the film and the story pans out more brilliantly then what was expected by the people watching the film.
Each character was given equal screen space and dialogues were very impactful and just aptly created and fit for every actor playing their part.
In Uri, we could see Vicky Kaushal looking every bit of a determined and strong soldier as Major Vihaan Shergill who could live or die for his country and is a true blue Indian. Vicky Kaushal has literally charmed and floored us with his prolific acting, real emotions and genuine expressions throughout the film.
Paresh Rawal as Ajit Dowal has acted in film with finesse and perfection and this was a hand in glove type of a role for him which he has done utter sincerity and floored us with his iconic dialogues like ‘’Ye naya Hindustan hai. Ye ghar me ghusega bhi aur maarega bhi’’.
Yami Gautam as Central Bureau Officer Pallavi Sharma and Kirti Kulhari as Indian Air force pilot Simar Jeet look truly awe inspiring and have done complete justice with their characters in the film and it feels like these were tailor made roles for both of them and we can’t imagine anybody else pulling it off so smoothly and effortlessly
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Songs are great especially ‘’Challa’’ sung by Romy, Vivek Hariharan, Shashwat Sachdev and ‘’Beh Chala’’ by Yasser Desai, Shashwat Sachdev. The background music in the film has done a perfect role of keeping the curiosity and intrigue level of the media critics and audiences pumped up throughout the entire film.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Uri is a true cinematic tribute honouring the martyrs of Indian surgical strike. Uri is a fitting homage to Indian armed forces resonating a sense of nationalism deep within every Indian.
