The trailer of ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’, starring Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam, hit the Internet on Wednesday.
The action-drama is based on the 2016 surgical strikes conducted by the Indian Army in retaliation to an alleged terror attack in the Kashmir region of Uri.
The trailer starts with setting up the scenario for the events in the movie. “On 18 September, 2016, 19 unarmed Indian soldiers were martyred at Uri base came, Kashmir,” the title reads. Vicky’s character is introduced with a scene in which he vows to never let his brothers-in-arms down, no matter where he is deployed. “We will get our revenge for the blood lost with blood,” Vicky Kaushal’s Vihaan Singh Shergill roars in the trailer of Uri.
Kaushal plays the leader of the Indian Army battalion behind the raid, which was in response to a terrorist attack on an Army camp in Uri in Kashmir on September 18, 2016.
Stated as the "the deadliest attack on security forces in Kashmir in two decades," the pre-planned ambush claimed the lives of 17 army personnel. The trailer begins with a funeral where the slain army men are being cremated with state honours. The Indian government responds with “We shall not remain silent, this is a new India.”
We then see a montage in which Vicky trains his chosen team for the operation, and delivers a rousing speech. “Indian Army didn’t start this war, but we will bloody hell finish it,” he yells.
Yami Gautam plays an intelligence officer, who interrogates the terror suspect.
‘Uri’ is directed by Aditya Dhar and stars Paresh Rawal and Kirti Kulhari.
The RSVP production is all set to release on January 11, 2019.
