“Yeh Naya Hindustan Hai!
Yeh Hindustan Ghar Mein Ghusega Bhi…….Aur Maarega Bhi”
Paresh Rawal utters these words in the recently released teaser of Uri- The Surgical Strike and sets the tone of the film. Uri is based on surgical strikes on terror launch pads across Line of Control (LoC) by India.
On September 18, 2016, 19 Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistani terrorists in an early morning attack at the 12 Infantry Brigade headquarters in Uri. The world was stunned to see the brutality of the cross border terrorists. In response, on September 29, the Indian Army’s Special Forces carried out “surgical strikes” on terror launch pads across Line of Control (LoC).
In the teaser, we see Vicky Kaushal gunning down terrorists in an operation and his intense gaze makes signifies the depth of the film. The intense paramilitary training which the actor went through for the movie shows in the teaser and leaves one wanting more.
In the Official description of the film by RSVP Production says, “A defining moment in India’s military history. A moment that paved a path to a new, stronger India…..”
Vicky Kaushal, the lead actor of the movie had earlier said, “When this film came to me and we had this discussion. I was really thrilled and kicked about it because this is one story that I feel that everyone needs to know. One of the fantastic army operations that the Indian army has conducted and with great efficiency. I also feel it is a great opportunity and also a responsibility for all of us to portray this story.”
The movie will be released on 11th January, 2019. Aditya Dhar, the director of the film earlier said, “This is the story of what happened in those eleven days. It’s an honour and very reassuring to be backed by Ronnie Screwvala and to execute on this vision and what we believe is an engaging and thrilling story inspired by this true-life incident.”
