Makers of Uri: The Surgical Strike donates 1 Crore to Army widows

If 2018 ended with a bang with the release of the Rohit Shetty directorial Simmba, 2019 began in an equally glorious manner with the release of the film Uri: The Surgical Strike, directed by Aditya Dhar. The film stars Vicky Kaushal in the lead role, with Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam, Mohit Raina, Swaroop Sampat and Kirti Kulhari forming a pivotal part of the film.

The film hit the theaters on the 11th January, 2019. After making such a wonderful film which serves as a tribute to the courage and valour 71st Indian Army Day of the Indian Army, the makers of the film did another wonderful thing. On the occasion of the 71st Indian Army Day, which was on the 15th January 2019, the makers and the star cast of the film attended the parade and they made a donation of Rs 1 Crore towards the welfare fund of Army widows.

The movie is based on the 2016 surgical strikes held by the Indian Army on the terrorist bases situated in POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir). This surgical strike was a bold response to the terrorist attack on a wing of the Indian Army that was based in Uri. The film chronicles the story of Army Major and Head of Special Forces Vihaan Shergill, portrayed by Vicky Kaushal, and how he, in collaboration with PMO bigwig Govind Sir (Paresh Rawal) and Intelligence Officer Pallavi Sharma (Yami Gautam) brilliantly plan and execute a fool-proof surgical strike.

The show is stolen by the stellar performance of a very buffed-up Vicky Kaushal, who retains the sincerity of his character throughout the movie. All the performances given by the actors are par excellence, and perfectly hold together a brilliantly written story. The action sequences seem very realistic with the shaky camera work, and, the background score takes the film several notches up. Uri is a must watch according to us!
