Film Uri: The Surgical Strike to re-release in theatres on Republic Day

Vicky Kaushal’s Uri: The Surgical Strike will be screened in theatres across 29 cities on Republic Day.

Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike is making its way back to the cinemas on Republic Day. The film will release in theatres across 29 cities including Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, Noida, Gurgaon, Chandigarh, and Indore, among other places.

The movie was released in 2019 and is based on the military actions carried out by Indian army in POK. The film was directed and written by debutant Aditya Dhar. The movie portrayed and captured the true emotions of army and Indian soldiers who sacrifice their life for the nation. The movie was not only liked but praised all over India.


However, this is not the first time that Uri: The Surgical Strike has been brought back to cinemas after its initial release. Back in 2019, the film which has initially released in January made its way back to cinemas in July where it screened in 500 theatres across Maharashtra on the occasion of Kargil Diwas.

In an interview with Firstpost, Kaushal has opened up about his experience while working in the film. “The biggest takeaway from the film for me was feeling very small as a human being after having lived an army man’s life. Vicky Kaushal is like a small identity. When I heard the stories of real-life army men, what they go through every day, our problem feels so small, absolutely nothing.” The film also won the National Awards in 2019 for background music, for sound design, and then for best director and best actor.
