“How’s the Josh?” “High Sir” “Jai Hind” Every theatre in India is screaming these words for almost a week now. Reason? “Uri: The Surgical Strike!”
It is not a common thing in the theatres that we see everyone from a 6 year old child to an 87 year old, standing for a “Jai Hind” tribute to their nation. But, “Uri: The Surgical Strike” has brought every Indian cinema watcher on the edge of their seats and people cannot leave without feeling overwhelmed with pride for the nation and the army.
“Uri” is based on the true events of the Uri attacks in 2016 and how the Indian Army took the fight to the enemy, in its most successful covert operation till date, with one and only one objective, to retaliate their fallen heroes. The surgical strike was carried out by the Indian Army on seven terrorist launch-pads across the Line of Control on September 29, 2016 as a confrontation to the terrorist attack on army camp at Uri earlier that month.
The film was making rounds even before its release as many decorated persons from India were sharing their excitement about the film.

The film is cashing not only at the Box Office but also gaining praises from dignitaries in India. For a significant example, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal could not even resist mentioning the film in the cabinet.

The performances of the actors and works done by the director and cinematographers are getting applauded from the audiences. The male lead, Vicky Kaushal has been getting flooded with praises for his phenomenal performance in the war drama. Kaushal has also been mentioning his gratitude towards the character from time to time.
It is really astonishing to see the film getting a standing ovation everywhere since its release. The movie has instigated a trend with youngsters yelling “How’s the josshh.. High Sir!’”, being a prominent dialogue. The youth all over the nation hailed the movie, showering patriotism and posting videos over the social media.
Moving one more step ahead, Uri, has also marked a digital strike for the cheaters. Using an innovative and impactful way, “Uri: The Surgical Strike” has said “No” to piracy. In the pirated version, just how they overran the terrorists, the actors from Uri strike on the screens and further condone the act of “chori chhipe illegal download” and urge you to go to the theatre to watch the movie.
With its increasing popularity and the applauses, it is no wonder if “Uri: The Surgical Strike” hits even bigger and better numbers in the coming future.
