“Yeh Naya Hindustan Hai Yeh Hindustan Ghar Mein Ghusega Bhi Aur Maarega Bhi (This is the new India, it will not only enter the house of its enemies but will also kill them)”, utters Paresh Rawal in the recently released teaser of Uri and sets the tone of the film.
Starring Vicky Kaushal, Uri is based on surgical strikes on terror launch pads across Line of Control (LoC).
The clip begins with a bird’s eye view of the attack, carried out by terrorists on the 12 Infantry Headquarters in Uri, that left 19 soldiers dead on September 18, 2016.
After shots of a rain soaked ceremony in which the soldiers are given an emotional send-off by their families, a steely-eyed Vicky Kaushal is seen leading a group of paratroopers in surgical strikes on terror launchpads across the LoC.
The official description of the movie reads, “A defining moment in India’s military history. A moment that paved a path to a new, stronger India. Presenting the official teaser of URI.” Written and directed by Aditya Dhar, the movie is scheduled to release on January 11, 2019.
Speaking about the film, Dhar had earlier said, “This is the story of what happened in those eleven days. It’s an honour and very reassuring to be backed by Ronnie Screwvala and to execute on this vision and what we believe is an engaging and thrilling story inspired by this true-life incident.”
