Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam starrer ‘Uri’ has recently hit the internet. While the trailer gives you a sneak peek of the action-packed performance of Vicky Kaushal and receiving lot of appreciation, it has already started being looked upon by some as an ‘anti-Pakistan’ film.
‘Uri’s plot is based on the 2016 surgical strikes on Pakistan after the Uri base camp of Jammu & Kashmir was attacked. Kaushal essays the role of an army officer who leads the covert military operation.
The trailer opens with a brief introduction to the film’s basic story line— “On 18 September, 2016, 19 unarmed Indian soldiers were martyred at Uri Base Camp, Kashmir. And with this, soon Vicky Kaushal’s character is introduced. He vows to take revenge for the Pak-attack on Indian soldiers and asked his senior to send him anywhere to they want to, so that he can take the revenge of killing unarmed Indian soldiers.
Director Karan Johar reviewed the trailer and praised the performance of Vicky Kaushal whom he directed in his recent web series ‘Lust Stories’.

Yami Gautam can be seen essaying an intelligence officer and in the trailer she is seen interrogating a terror suspect.
The trailer also introduced the characters of Paresh Rawal, Kirti Kulhari and Mohit Raina, who makes his Bollywood debut with the film.
‘Uri’ is helmed by Aditya Dhar who is the writer of films like– ‘Kabul Express’ and ‘Boond’.
While the trailer is getting lot appreciation, the debutant director Adiyta Dhar said that his film has not shown Pakistanis in poor light, hoping they too will appreciate the film.
During the film promotion in Mumbai on Saturday, while Aditya was asked ‘whether his film would be released in Pakistan’, he said: “It doesn’t bother me. I have made this film for our country, citizens of this country and our Army. If Pakistani audience trusts us and if they will watch the film, they will realise that we haven’t spoken anything negative about Pakistani citizens.”
“Whatever statement we have made in this film is about terrorism. If they realise that we are only fighting against terrorism and not against any country or its citizens, then they will really appreciate the film,” he said.
‘Uri’ is produced by RSVP movies and is slated to hit the screens in early month of next year, 11 January, 2019.
