The date of January 11 is a highly anticipated one, for the Vicky Kaushal starrer 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' will finally release on that date. The movie is based on the real-life stealth mission carried out by the Indian armed forces to eliminate terrorist camps in Pakistan. Since it is based on such a sensitive topic, the makers of the film arranged a special screening for the forces.
The makers of 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' reportedly arranged a special screening of the film's trailer and certain crucial scenes from the film. This program was arranged for the officials of the army, navy, CRPF and BSF among others. What's more, the makers can rejoice for they have received a huge thumbs up from them.
The officials were happy with what they saw and felt proud to relive those moments once again. They were particularly fascinated to see how they fellow comrades carried out this super dangerous mission bravely and the sacrifices they made along the way. They also commented that the events depicted in the film are quite close to reality, which is a big sign of approval for the makers.
It is not altogether surprising, for the making of 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' has been rather meticulous. The director of the film Aditya Dhar, took six months to gather all the minute details and string together a script. Moreover, the makers have also seemed to have stitched actual footage from the strike to provide further authenticity to the film.
Not only that, but Aditya has also clarified that the intention of the film is not to show Pakistan in the bad light but to focus instead on the issue of terrorism. The film is based on the 2016 Indian Army's surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan as retaliation for the attack that happened at Uri base camp which claimed the lives of 17 army personnel.
