URI: The Surgical Strike: Competition to Peers
URI is Vicky Kaushal’s first movie as an actor in the lead role and he has left spellbound with his acting skills as always. The film made its way to the theatres on 11 January and since then it had been able to capture the attention of the audience. Every since the film released, it gave a tough competition to movies such as Why Cheat India and The Accidental Prime Minister. Moreover, the movie proved to be great too. In its first weekend only, the movie was able to collect Rs 35 crore.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh stated that URI is the first superhit film of Bollywood. URI is the story based on the surgical strikes that the Indian Army carried out as an answer to the URI Attacks by the terrorist in 2016. The movie was produced by Ronnie Screwvala as per the RSVP Movies banner.
URI: The Surgical Strike: On the verge of beating Raazi
Uri is on the verge of beating the lifetime collection of Raazi. In Raazi, Vicky Kaushal played the role of Pakistani Army officer married to the character of Alia Bhatt, an Indian spy. However, his role in Uri is a totally contrasting one, playing the role of an Indian army official. Although there are mixed reviews for the film, it has completely received appreciation from the people.
The film entered the Rs 100-crore club within 10 days. With such a higher income, the film has become the blockbuster for the year. It is expected that the movie may slow down with the release of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi of Kangana Ranaut and Nawazuddin’s Thackeray.
