Critics have praised Uri, especially actor Vicky Kaushal's performance in the movie. Uri: The Surgical Strike is clashing with Anupam Kher's The Accidental Prime Minister as both films were released on the same day, 11th January 2019. Uri: The Surgical Strike has managed to surpass Anupam Kher's film that has made Rs 13.90 crore at the domestic box office collection. Vijay Ratnakar Gutte's The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the real-life events of former prime minister Manmohan Singh's tenure.
Vicky Kaushal, while talking to reporters after the opening of Uri: The Surgical Strike, said, "Till the film is released, you don't have an idea if it is going to work. But since yesterday, the kind of reaction we have received is really overwhelming. It's a surreal feeling that the audience has accepted our film with open arms."
Vicky Kaushal plays the role of Major Vihaan Singh Shergil, who vows to seek revenge for both his country and brother-in-law. Mohit Raina is in the role of Vicky's brother-in-law, who is among the martyrs of Uri army base attack. Ronnie Screwvala's production house, RSVP Movies, has produced the movie.
