Uri Is The Film You Can Watch For Vicky Kaushal And For Indian Army
URI is based on the true events of India’s Surgical Strikes in 2016. The Surgical Strike was conducted by the Indian Army after the terrorist attack on Army Headquarters in Uri. It was a huge accomplishment for the Indian government.
Direction and Screenplay: Aditya Dhar
Cast: Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Paresh Raval, Kirti Kulhari, Mohit Raina
The film is written and directed by Aditya Dhar. Vicky Kaushal is playing the Indian commando Major Vihaan Shergill who leads Indian Army in a strike operation in Manipur. He leads another operation against Nagaland Militants with commander Major Karan Kashyap, played by Mohit Raina.
Vihaan’s mother diagnosed with Alzheimer so he settles for a desk job in New Delhi to take care of her. During his job in Delhi, four militants destroyed Uri Army Headquarters and killed few Indian soldiers including Vihaan’s brother in law Karan Kashyap.
After the militants attack, Indian Army plans a Surgical strike which is guided by military advisors Paresh Raval. Major Vihaan leads the operation to take the revenge of killed Indian soldiers.
Uri is a patriotic piece with a stunning performance from Vicky Kaushal. He lifts himself on top to play Indian commando. He nails in the role of Major Vihaan Shergill. Mohit Raina in the role of Karan Kashyap is too impressive. I want to see him more.
Yami Gautam played an intelligence officer but she had nothing more to do. She had a good scene when she tries to take the information from the militants. Kirti Kulhari is seen as an Indian Air Force officer who plays an important role in the complete operation but wasted in a small role.
The technical team of Uri has roared with their efforts to show us the realistic things smartly. The military operations and army activities look so realistic and evoke some patriotism. Shashavat Sachdeva’s background score is terrific.
The film is divided into four chapters including a final chapter (Surgical Strike) so the audience can easily understand the story. Aditya Dhar has really done a good job in his directorial debut.
Screenplay somehow focuses more on Major Vihaan so ultimately Vicky Kaushal gets big screen appearance in the film. Other actors are just part of the film.
The first half is more gripping than the second half. After the intermission, Indian army plans the surgical strike and in this half, we see some government activities. Rajit Kapoor as PM Modi And Manohar Parrikar’s lookalike was the highlight. The film takes speed in the operation part. Cinematographer Mitesh Mirchandani grabbed the intensity of this entire surgical strike very brilliantly including the night scenes.
Uri is a decent action drama film. There are few unnecessary subplots in the film which affects the realistic theme of the film. The screenplay also needs a surgical strike. It could have been better.
Uri is the film you can watch For Vicky Kaushal and for Indian Army who conducted the successful surgical strike two years ago.
