Vicky Kaushal's Uri: The Surgical Strike clashed with Anupam Kher's The Accidental Prime Minister. The film opened to mixed reviews at the box office with praises for Vicky Kaushal's performance. In his review for NDTV film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote, "For the presence of Vicky Kaushal, whose character desists from overt chest-thumping, Uri: The Surgical Strike would have been a complete washout."
Uri is based on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army in Pakistan following the 2016 terror attacks in Uri base camp. Apart from Vicky Kaushal, the film also stars Yami Gautam, Kirti Kulhari, Paresh Rawal and Mohit Raina.
