Be it avenging the deaths of fellow soldiers, or going ahead and occupying what is rightly ours; Uri: The Surgical Strike is representative of a Brave New India.

Aditya Dhar the director of Uri said, “I am honored with the kind of love and response that Uri has received since its release. As a team, we would often discuss that if we were able to inspire even a single person to join the Defence Services after seeing the film, we would consider the purpose of making Uri served. I hope the movie continues to inspire young Indians to go ahead and dream big.”

After a successful mission Vihaan wishes to retire from the army life; but soon finds himself torn between serving his ailing mother and his motherland. Govind Bharadwaj (Paresh Rawal), the National Security Advisor appoints Major Vihaan for the highly secretive operation planned under the guidance of the Prime Minister of India (Rajit Kapur). The movie is further divided into five chapters leading to the final one – the Surgical Strike. The film details the operation, showcasing the task force led by Major Vihaan, manoeuvre through the heart of the valley, into the PoK zone which is infiltrated by terrorist camps.
