Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is one of the most highly respected filmmakers in the Indian film industry. However, his frequent clashes with CBFC and his disdain for the current regime has also been evident. But this time, the filmmaker has proven that he is not motivated by any narrative, as his honest review of Vicky Kaushal starrer 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' has taken the social media by storm.
Taking to Twitter, the 'Gangs of Wasseypur' filmmaker was actually all praise for the Aditya Dhar directorial and said that, " Uri” is not a propaganda film. Any war film about the heroism of its soldiers will be patriotic by default. By that standards “Border”, LOC, Haqeeqat wore patriotism on its sleeve. War movies are either anti-war like “come and See” or patriotic."
He gave clear, logical reasons as to why he enjoyed the Vicky Kaushal starrer so much. He admitted that he went in thinking it will be a propaganda film but that it actually just stuck to the events that happened with some creative liberty.
As for the jingoism factor which many people wondered about ahead of the film's release, he had this to say, "The Jingoism spouted in “Uri” was far lesser than the jingoism I see in American movies or war movies from anywhere across the world. I think we watch everything from the coloured glasses of the time we live in and just don’t trust anyone’s intention."
Anurag concluded his review by saying that the technical flourishes in Uri make it very believable and congratulated the team for this for executing this film.
Well, with even Anurag Kashyap coming to enjoy the film, all the questions of the film having propaganda, jingoism or Pakistan bashing can be safely put to rest.
