URI The Surgical Strike All Critic Reviews & Ratings

  • 1Films | Review By - Aditya | Rating-4/5
Uri is a carefully created film, and is very much successful in its intentions and landing at exactly where it wanted.

The film is a fitting tribute to the Indian Army conceptually but cinematically, it’s not a film without flaws.

  • News 18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-3/5
Ultimately there’s a lot to admire here, but because it can’t shake off its unmistakably filmi sensibility, it proves thrilling only in parts.

Uri: The Surgical Strike is slickly made, and on the whole keeps you watching despite some clunky passages. It’s always good to have movies in which the soldiers look real.

Uri is a decent looking film, and while the action is convincing, the proceedings are unmistakably dull.

An unabashed love letter to the Indian army. If you want nuance or insight into the hearts and minds of brave men and women who willingly put themselves in the line of fire, you won’t find it here.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-2.5/5
The build-up to the military strikes are accompanied by swelling background music. The action sequences have a brutality and realism that has rarely been seen in Hindi cinema.

Director Aditya Dhar is tuned in to the action scenes and manages to get the VFX, and most action sequences on point.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-3/5
Some of the combat sequences are sensational. Sparks fly, quite literally; even as sentiments are firmly in place, to keep you engaged with the characters, and their emotional motivations.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-2.5/5
It's just run-of-the-mill revenge. Despite slick visuals and solid acting, Uri fails to make this distinction.

  • News 18 | Review By - Rohit Vats | Rating-3/5
Vicky Kaushal has hit all the right notes, to say the least. Grim yet determined, he charges with vigor. Uri totally belongs to him.

  • First Post | Review By - Udita Jhunjhunwala | Rating-3.5/5
As far as war dramas go, Uri: The Surgical Strike is a confidently made film that comes out guns blazing. And when the guns are not blazing, Kaushal certainly is.

URI: THE SURGICAL STRIKE has a thrilling and a gripping narrative which instills patriotism without getting jingoistic.

  • Filmfare | Review By - Devesh Sharma | Rating-3/5
The problem is with the screenplay. Instead of watching a patriotic film, you get the feeling you're watching a revenge drama.

Overall Average Rating - 2.9/5
