Plot of the movie
This Nationalist movie is based on the surgical strike of 2016, September.
After Pakistan’s attack on a base camp in Uri and killing many soldiers, this plan became active.
The movie splendidly portrays how the Indian Army counter attacked the enemies and successfully carried out the surgical strike returning to India with zero casualties. Due to the Uri attack 19 Indian soldiers has passed away. The response from the Indian army to the cowardly act was exceptional.
The film readily features that bravery with stunning notes.

Reviews and critical response
The movie won heart of the people getting overwhelming response from all around.
The movie grossed widely earning a huge amount of 289 crores in the box office.
Uri is not only a box office hit but a rare movie to acquire both audience love as well as critics praises with high ratings.
Prominent critic of Times Now News Aman Khanna said, “Uri: The Surgical Strike is a rather mature film. It somehow knows that it is catering to the viewer that is tired of watching the men in uniform who thump their chests to show their love and passion for the country.” He gave the movie three stars out of five.”
“Debutant director Aditya Dhar needs to be patted on his back for his well-researched work before transferring his vision on the big screen. Talking about the performances, Vicky Kaushal is in a terrific form as the man in uniform and proves yet again why he is one of the best from the current crop of Gen-X actors.
Pull this man out of his comfort zone and he never fails to surprise you in a pleasant way! Mohit Raina makes an impressive transition to the big screen and has a commendable screen presence. Yami Gautam’s character begins on an interesting note. However, Aditya Dhar fails to explore more sides to it. Same holds true for Kirti Kulhari who thankfully gets her own ‘bravura’ moment before the climax”, says a review from Times of India.
People did accept this movie with open arms.
The dialogue ” How is the Josh” became so popular that the speech turned out to be a regularly conversed one among people.
