The military drama, starring Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal, is based on the September 2016 Uri attack and the subsequent surgical strikes by the Indian Army. Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Movies released the teaser of Aditya Dhar’s Uri on Friday.
The teaser elaborates on the military strategy of a “new Hindustan”, described as a more assertive country that will retaliate when provoked. “India, in its history, has never attacked any country first,” says Rawal’s character in the clip. “This is the opportunity to put fear in their hearts...India will not stay silent now.”
On September 18, 2016, 19 army personnel were killed and many others injured after four militants attacked an Army base in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri. The Indian Army announced on September 29 that it had conducted retaliatory surgical strikes across the Line of Control with Pakistan and claimed that it had dismantled “terror launchpads” in the country.
2 years after the surgical strikes, bollywood is ready with a film on it with Kaushal playing the leader of the Indian Army battalion behind the raid.
