Movie Review: Well, we have the first big release of 2019, Uri: The Surgical Strike hitting the cinemas today. There was a lot of buzz surrounding the film. Since it is based on the real story of the surgical strike that took place in Kashmir in 2016, the film had already garnered a lot of attention.
Coming to the story of the film, it is about the revenge that the India army takes when Pakistani militants attack the unarmed army men at the Uri basecamp in Kashmir. In the film, Vicky Kaushal is seen as the army man who heads the surgical strike. Well, the movie keeps you held to the seat, although there are incidences when you would feel a bit stretchy the actions sequences and powerful dialogues compensate for the same.
Some points are a bit difficult to digest like Vicky Kaushal who not only decides the strategy but in some instances we see him outthinking even the intelligence against. In some instances, you would feel that the Indian Army has complete control over the situation. The fight sequences and the army men donning night-googles and paratroopers will definitely make you hear some whistles in the hall. The action sequences are commendable, but at some point, the story seems to lose its grip.
Coming to the performances then Vicky Kaushal outshines and stands out. He is able to perfectly essay the role of an army man, Yami Gautam looks confident and must say a solid performance by Mohit Raina.
The film is decent and one time watch. The songs of the films are average. Overall, it’s a good watch if you are willing to see what happens at the military base camp.
