Actor Vicky Kaushal unveiled trailer of his forthcoming film ‘Uri – The Surgical Strike’ on Wednesday on his social networking accounts.
Uri – The Surgical Stike’ action-drama is based on the 2016 surgical strikes conducted by the Indian government in retaliation to an alleged terror attack in the Kashmir region of Uri. The film stars Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal in lead roles.
The trailer begins by setting up the scenario: “On 18 September, 2016, 19 unarmed Indian soldiers were martyred at Uri base came, Kashmir,” the title reads. Vicky’s character is introduced with a scene in which he vows to never let his brothers-in-arms down, no matter where he is deployed.
Yami Gautam plays an intelligence officer, who is seen interrogating a terror suspect, and like Jessica Chastain’s Zero Dark Thirty character, seen using ‘advanced interrogation techniques’ (torture).
We then see a montage in which Vicky trains his chosen team for the operation, and delivers a rousing speech. “Indian army didn’t start this war, but we will bloody hell finish it,” he yells.
Vicky on Tuesday had shared a new poster for the film, which showed a group of soldiers being parachuted down into enemy territory, presumably to carry out the strikes.
Uri is directed by Aditya Dhar, produced by Ronnie Screwvala, and scheduled for a January 11 release.
