Uri, directed by Aditya Dhar, is based on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army in Pakistan after 2016's Uri terror attack.
"For the presence of Vicky Kaushal, whose character desists from overt chest-thumping, Uri: The Surgical Strike would have been a complete washout," film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote in his review for NDTV.
Yami Gautam, Mohit Raina and Paresh Rawal also play prominent roles in Uri.
Uri: The Surgical Strike clashed at the box office with Anupam Kher's The Accidental Prime Minister. Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui's Thackeray released last Friday.
