URI box-office collection day 1: Vicky Kaushal film takes a solid start

Uri The Surgical Strike’ movie review The action is as slick as the propaganda

He added, "Aditya Dhar, the director and writer of the film, is very passionate about the army, and has made this film as a tribute to the army and nobody else". Directed by Aditya Dhar, the film saw a good opening on the initial day of release on Friday despite competition from Anupam Kher's "The Accidental Prime Minister" and Rajinikanth's "Petta".

Two of the most highly-anticipated films, The Accidental Prime Minister and Vicky Kaushal-starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike, released on 11 January. The Vicky-starrer, therefore, is marching ahead of "The Accidental Prime Minister" which chronicles the tenure of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in office. Vicky also reunited with his Sanju co-star Paresh Rawal in the film, while Yami Gautam plays an intelligence officer.

Both movies are expected to pick up pace over the weekend. With a screen count of just 1,300 across India, it was a good start for the film.

While another trade expert Girish Johar said, "Definitely people are looking forward to seeing Kaushal as a military officer after he delivered good performances a year ago". "Till the film is released, you don't have an idea if it is going to work". According to BoxOfficeIndia.com, the film opened well at the box office earning around Rs 8-8.25 crore on its opening day. The film is based on the surgical strikes carried out on September 29, 2016, by the Indian Army on terrorist launchpads across the Line of Control.

And it is a good number considering the face value the film had. Stay tuned with us for all the latest updates of Bollywood and box office reports.
