The success story of ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ is unprecedented. A movie without any so-called A-list superstar doing the business it has amid the unanimous love throughout from audiences would have been considered impossible before its release. But the action film has managed the unbelievable feat of sustaining at the box office for more than 50 days and has now completed two successful months. The movie’s lead actor Vicky Kaushal conveyed his gratitude to the nation for the love they have showered on the war drama.
‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’, which released on January 11, completed two months on Monday and Vicky wrote, “#Uri marks 2 months of successful run in theatres today and continues to receive so much love from you all. Thank You India!”
Coming to its box office collections, the movie is the biggest hit in recent times after ‘Sanju’ in June last year, crossing Rs 240 crore. Even in its ninth weekend, the war drama earned over Rs one crore, taking the total to Rs 242.27 crore and establishing itself as an 'All-time Blockbuster.'
While a venture lasting at the box office for two-three weeks and maximum one month is considered an achievement in today’s times, the Aditya Dhar directorial enjoying nine weeks at the box office is unparalleled in recent times. Even Taran Adarsh, who tweeted the figures, called it a ‘rarity’ as it continued to receive footfalls despite reduced shows because of new releases every week.
‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’, also starring Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, Mohit Raina, among others, is produced by Ronnie Screwvala. The movie is based on the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army over terrorist camps in Pakistan in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri in 2016.
