The movie on the whole keeps you watching despite some clunky passages. It’s always good to have movies in which the soldiers look real, even if the action is buoyed by such dialogues as ‘unhe Kashmir chaihye, humein unka sar’.

Vicky Kaushal leads an efficient but unimpressive attack. They may well have titled this film based on 2016 Surgical Strikes the Call Of Desi Duty.

Uri The Surgical Strike has many exciting moments. Don’t be surprised if you hear whistles all around when Indian paratroopers blast terrorist camps inside Pakistan

URI is edge-of-your-seat ride through recent history featuring Vicky Kaushal's competent performance at its centre.

Movies, their motives and time of release make me wonder if we'll ever be able to see India as India and not a reflection of its governments

Vicky Kaushal plays a steady hand and delivers the goods to an extent that, at times, seems wasted on it

The soldiers give up their today for our tomorrow and no words can signify or repay the sacrifices they make for our country. Uri puts a spotlight on the thankless job they do with passion in their hearts and fire in their bellies. The film is a fitting tribute to the Indian Army conceptually but cinematically, it’s not a film without flaws.

His slick war film draws a leaf out of Kathryn Bigelow’s gritty movies. “Uri: The Surgical Strike” is shorn of heavy background music, has smart action sequences and the requisite fist-pumping dialogue that are the hallmark of this genre. But try as it might, it also cannot avoid the Bollywood tropes that weigh it down.

Watch it for Vicky’s honest performance and to get a closer look at what happened on the night of the surgical strike.

Uri: The Surgical Strike, the first of the many political films to follow this year, has set the tone of the 2019 elections.

...a story of courage told with utmost honesty. Vicky Kaushal’s disciplined performance and the way of balancing tensions, thrills make this a movie you don’t want to miss.

...has a thrilling and a gripping narrative which instills patriotism without getting jingoistic. At the box office, the film will mainly appeal to the multiplex audience.

No better actor to lead this charge than the fully fired-up Vicky Kaushal menacingly calm as a military mind - inspiring his peers, with an infectious energy that is impossible to resist

What Dhar squanders on the screenplay, he makes up for in the details. Stefan Richter’s carefully designed and executed action scenes, Sashwat Sachdev’s thunderous background score, sound mix, sound design and special effects simulate authenticity. As far as war dramas go, Uri: The Surgical Strike is a confidently made film that comes out guns blazing. And when the guns are not blazing, Kaushal certainly is.

It's shot well, and despite being a patriotic revenge drama it remains soulless.
