Uri is based on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian army after 2016's Uri terror attacks. Vicky Kaushal plays the officer in charge of the operation. In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "But for the presence of Vicky Kaushal... Uri: The Surgical Strike would have been a complete washout. It gets two stars - one for its technical sheen, the other for the male lead."
