Raja Sen | Hindustan Times: 2/5
Vicky Kaushal leads an efficient but unimpressive attack ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5
The soldiers give up their today for our tomorrow and no words can signify or repay the sacrifices they make for our country. Uri puts a spotlight on the thankless job they do with passion in their hearts and fire in their bellies. ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
A slick war film. Uri on the whole keeps you engaged despite some clunky passages. It’s always good to have movies in which the soldiers look real, even if the action is buoyed by such dialogues as 'unhe Kashmir chaihye, humein unka sar' ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 3/5
Uri The Surgical Strike has many exciting moments. Don’t be surprised if you hear whistles all around when Indian paratroopers blast terrorist camps inside Pakistan ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5
In fact, sketchy writing is a problem that plagues the film as a whole. But for the presence of Vicky Kaushal, whose character desists from overt chest-thumping, Uri: The Surgical Strike would have been a complete washout ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3.5/5
URI: THE SURGICAL STRIKE has a thrilling and a gripping narrative which instills patriotism without getting jingoistic. At the box office, the film will mainly appeal to the multiplex audience ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5
A War Movie Bollywood Can Boast About!. The tension is amazingly carried among the dense jungles of Kashmir which adds those necessary thrills to the plot ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2.5/5
A deadpan take on warfare! Movies, their motives and time of release make me wonder if we'll ever be able to see India as India and not a reflection of its governments ... Full Review

Harshada Rege | DNAIndia: 3/5
Watch it for Vicky’s honest performance and to get a closer look at what happened on the night of the surgical strike ... Full Review

Lakshana N Palat | India Today: 3/5
Vicky Kaushal, who had a golden year in 2018, starts 2019 with a bang. There are no complaints about his acting, though at points you want to see more of Vicky's acting than his action ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 2.5/5
An Unabashed Love Letter To The Indian Army. The dance between a realistic terrorist drama and rousing action thriller proves to be too much ... Full Review

Amman Khurana | Times Now News: 3/5
Uri: The Surgical Strike is a good one-time watch. If not for anything else, watch it for Vicky Kaushal, who brings the right amount of intensity to his role and drives the film from start to finish ... Full Review

Subhash K Jha | Sify: 3.5/5
The war film we've been waiting for. There is a rush of patriotic pride in the product ... Full Review

Ankita Chakravarti | Zee News: 3/5
Much ahead of its release, URI was touted as a hyper-nationalistic film but to everyone's surprise, it has rightly steered cleared from jingoism and useless chest-thumping ... Full Review

Anita Iyer | Khaleej Times: 3.5/5
Although the film is based on a highly-publicised event, the director manages to keep us on tenterhooks, right from the moment the army starts its mission in the second half. Your heart pounds with tension as small teams of army men venture into unknown, foreign territories to take on the terrorists ... Full Review

H Shivkumar | Republic World: 4/5
Vicky Kaushal-starrer A Technically Brilliant Action Film That Indian Cinema Can Be Proud Of For A Long Time ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2.5/5
The action is as slick as the propaganda ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 2/5
At least video games let you skip the cut-scenes. That's a luxury Aditya Dhar's debut feature, Uri: The Surgical Strike, doesn't allow. Certainly, the film boasts some admirable action in the opening, middle and closing sequences: the explosions and muzzle flashes look real ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 3/5
The film is potently packaged and persuasive propaganda ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 3.5/5
Vicky Kaushal delivers top-notch performance in potent war drama. As far as war dramas go, Uri: The Surgical Strike is a confidently made film that comes out guns blazing. And when the guns are not blazing, Kaushal certainly is ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3/5
Sparks Fly, Quite Literally! No better actor to lead this charge than the fully fired-up Vicky Kaushal menacingly calm as a military mind - inspiring his peers, with an infectious energy that is impossible to resist ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 4/5
It's Vicky Kaushal's dedication that compels you to forget the mistakes and watch the film. Channeling his inner Martin Sheen, he method acts to glory amidst the madness and comes out triumphant from the heart of darkness ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | Book My Show: 3/5
Ultimately there’s a lot to admire here, but because it can’t shake off its unmistakably filmi sensibility – which is inherently at odds with the no-nonsense tone it aspires for – it proves thrilling only in parts. The film is too long at nearly 2 hours and 20 minutes and as a result, it runs but never flies ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 4/5
Though it lacks the layered philosophy on wars like RAAZI, it cannot be denied that a time comes when eye for an eye becomes the most befitting reply ... Full Review

Shubham Kulkarni | Cine Blitz: 3/5
Film is promising and heartwarming. To sum up everything, URI: The Surgical Strike is a story we all need to know, and there will be biases about it as always. But the film comes from a real place of dedication to that event and despite some flaws, deserves a watch! ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: 3/5
Uri' is Predictably Patriotic With a Brand New Blood-Lust. What matters to this movie, above all, is military conquest ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 3.5/5
A Faithful, Forceful Film but Occasionally Dry. Do visit “URI” for the story it tells. If you are Indian enough, you will oversee or dismiss the flaws. After all, you will be watching a “new Hindustan” speaking the language of its enemies, and so gratifying your emotions when India reciprocates the repeated insults ... Full Review

Pavni Jain | India TV: 3.5/5
There is no denying that Aditya did his finest job in Uri. From the introduction to the tight frames and use of point-of-view shots during gun-loaded action scenes depicts that the director has successfully brought his imagination on the silver screen ... Full Review

Bhavna Agarwal | PinkVilla: 3/5
Vicky Kaushal's film Uri: The Surgical Strike is a one time watch though the screenplay could have been crisp ... Full Review

Vickey Lalwani | Spotboye: 3.5/5
Uri was not an easy film to make, not an easy film to act in either. You can bet your last shirt on that. The quietly smart Vicky Kaushal turns avenger and raises his voice this time ... Full Review

Ashwin Bharadwaj | Lens Men Reviews: 3/5
Uri : The Surgical Strike is a technically brilliant film in terms of production values and quality of visuals along with perfect sound design. The script here is problematic on many levels, but luckily it’s not a J P Dutta kind of war movie ... Full Review

Priya Hazra | The Statesman: 3.5/5
The film is based on a real incident and thus not much unfolds to surprise the viewers. However, what lacked in the story was in-depth research which left the second half weake ... Full Review

Angel Rani | Deccan Herald: 3/5
Meanwhile, Vicky Kaushal effectively uses his silence to push the Bharat Mata tempo, amplified by a powerful background score. He takes the josh high, but politics brings it a notch down ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre: 3.5/5
Uri is a slick outing, which, at first pass, restrains itself from heightening its jingoism. Vicky Kaushal brings tremendous sincerity to Uri ... Full Review

Behind Woods: 3.5/5
The surgical strike is a painstakingly directed, brilliantly acted and diligently researched action film ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: 3/5
Uri has incredibly persuasive action sequences, but its military reserve can be stifling ... Full Review
