And #Uri crosses ₹ 💯 cr… Sure, ₹ 💯 cr is *not* the yardstick to gauge the success of a film, but it should be celebrated when mid-sized films like #SKTKS, #Raazi, #Stree, #BadhaaiHo and #UriTheSurgicalStrike hit century… Content is king and the audiences are king makers!

Uri: The Surgical Strike is one of the first releases of 2019 and also the first movie to cross the 100 crore club. Well the bigger achievement than that is the content of the movie. This makes the movie more deserving. It is the content of Uri that has made it possible for the movie to secure its mark in the 100 crore list.
The critics and audience have been impressed by the performance of Vicky Kaushal in the film. The actor finds himself in the center of all the praises showered upon the movie.
Written and directed by Aditya Dhar, ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ is produced by Ronnie Screwvala. ‘Uri’ was announced by the producer after one year of the surgical strike in September 2017.
