Hyderabad: Zee Telugu is set to take its viewers on a memorable journey this Independence Day, filled with courage and bravery. One such instance of bravery was the ‘surgical strikes’ conducted in 2016 by the Indian army, against militant launch pads in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (POK). This story is depicted in the movie ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ starring Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam. To celebrate our honorary Indian Army on the day of national independence, ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ will premiere in Telugu on television on the-first-time-ever on 15th August at 3:00 PM only on Zee Telugu and Zee Telugu HD.
Aditya Dhar, a debutant directed this film based on the sensational surgical strike of 2016. To begin with, the film has been divided into chapters which ultimately lead to the surgical strikes. Major Vihaan Singh Shergill played by Vicky Kaushal, is a valiant army man who aces in strategic operations. However, when his mother’s Alzheimer’s start progressing rapidly, he bids goodbye to his border surveillance and requests for a transfer to an army base in the Capital so that he can spend some time with his mother. When National Security advisor, played by Paresh Rawal, proposes for a surgical strike in POK, Vihaan comes back to the border and leads the mission.
The movie is produced by Ronnie Screwvala, while the music scored by Shaswat Sachdev adds intensity, especially when it comes to the action scenes in the film. The sound is powerfully composed to be a character by itself in ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’.
