The much-awaited trailer of URI depicting the reality behind the surgical strike in Pakistan released on Wednesday and has been creating an uproar not just in India but also Pakistan.
The Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam starrer promises to be one of the sleekest action war films of recent times. Providing an insight into the Indian Army's surgical strikes on terror launch pads across Line of Control (LoC), URI traces one of the most significant events of the history of the Indian army. On September 18, 2016, 19 Indian soldiers were killed in an early morning attack by Pakistani terrorists at the 12 Infantry Brigade headquarters in Uri. In response, on September 29, the Indian Army's Special Forces carried out surgical strikes on terror launch pads across Line of Control (LoC).
The power-packed trailer evokes a strong patriotic sentiment amongst the audience based against the backdrop of true events.
URI is one of the most anticipated films and it is the first film of Bollywood to release in 2019.
The teaser featured Vicky Kaushal in a revengeful avatar to avenge the death of his friend and fellow soldiers that laid their lives in the Pakistani terrorist attack. The trailer further provided insights into the significant event.
URI is a film which has an ensemble cast, including Mohit Raina, Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam, and Kirti Kulhari, but the film majorly revolves around Vicky's character.
Produced by RSVP movies and directed by Aditya Dhar, the film is slated to release on 11th January 2019.
