Uri, directed by Aditya Dhar features Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, Kriti Kulhari and Mohit Raina in important roles. The movie has garnered a mixed response from the critics. While some are calling it propaganda film and criticising the jingoism on which Uri allegedly thrives, others are in love with it for hailing the sacrifices of martyrs.
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap took to Twitter to praise Vicky Kaushal starrer and refused to call it a propaganda film. ''I quite liked Uri for the way it was executed. I went in thinking it will be a propaganda film & it just sticks true to what happened with similar creative liberties most filmmakers take in telling a story,'' he wrote. Anurag Kashyap has earlier collaborated with Vicky Kaushal in Manmarziyaan, Raman Raghav 2.0 and Gangs of Wasseypur.
Uri is expected to set the cash registers ringing as it has only The Accidental Prime Minister as the competitor.
