Uri: The Surgical Strike

Critics Review


The Nation Seems To Love It

Aditya Dhar makes a confident debut as filmmaker with Uri and is ably supported by his leading man, Vicky Kaushal. The film could have worked well as a superb war film from India, but falls well short of being so.(more)

Vicky Kaushal takes Pakistan head on in this military drama

Uri: The Surgical Strike is clear from the word go as to which political party it caters to, and makes no secret of it. Modi and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval (Rawal) is seen in practically every scene and is part of every meeting that involves discussions on the surgical strikes. The timing of this film couldn't have been more perfect.(more)

Uri: The Surgical Strike is a fitting tribute to the Indian Army conceptually but cinematically, it's not a film without flaws.

The soldiers give up their today for our tomorrow and no words can signify or repay the sacrifices they make for our country. Uri puts a spotlight on the thankless job they do with passion in their hearts and fire in their bellies. The film is a fitting tribute to the Indian Army conceptually but cinematically, it�s not a film without flaws. (more)

Vicky Kaushal delivers a top notch performance in a potent war drama

What Dhar squanders on the screenplay, he makes up for in the details. Stefan Richter's carefully designed and executed action scenes, Sashwat Sachdev's thunderous background score, sound mix, sound design and special effects simulate authenticity. As far as war dramas go, Uri: The Surgical Strike is a confidently made film that comes out guns blazing. And when the guns are not blazing, Kaushal certainly is.(more)

A slick war film

he movie on the whole keeps you watching despite some clunky passages. It's always good to have movies in which the soldiers look real, even if the action is buoyed by such dialogues as 'unhe Kashmir chaihye, humein unka sar'.(more)

An Unabashed Love Letter To The Indian Army

All of which is designed to create a sense of urgency but by this time, the narrative has lost its grip. I think a shorter running time would have served the story better.(more)
