Theatres, where URI has been released, need not put posters outside. The roars of Vande Mataram and Jai Hind by the audience itself is enough to tell you, bhai yaha pe URI lagi hui hai.
Performance: Vicky Kaushal gives such a performance that will haunt your minds for hours or days even after the movie. A mature son, a strong soldier and a caring brother. Man, you mastered all the roles. Though he was outstanding throughout, 2 scenes pinched my heart. One is when his mother is lost and the other when he controls his tears at a funeral. What a class.
Yami Gautam and Kirti Kulhari add the women power factor and very well played.
Screenplay: bhai fevicol lagaya kya? How can you make it so watertight? The screenplay is so engaging and gripping that you end up abusing anyone who calls you in between the movie. Some fevicol on your seats too and you refuse to get out in the interval.
Direction: Totally flawless. Can say, at par with Hollywood. The use of war weapons, the latest technology in the army, the firing of the bullets everything seemed so realistic, thanks to the direction. No scenes introduced to give the jabardasti ka deshbhakti and extra marks for that.
A balanced mixture of patriotism, emotions, action, glamour with a pinch of humor.
Sound: the sound doesn’t reach your brains or heart. It goes straight to your nerves and injects the necessary excitement. No wonders if you come out of the theatres saying, bhai aaj kuch tufaani karte hai.
Verdict: Honestly, URI is beyond expectations. A movie that Bollywood can boast about in the future. Not just any other movie on some mission.
So, how’s the josh? High sir.
What’s the rating? Five sir.
