How’s The Josh? High Sir!

Posted: January 15, 2019

Uri: The Surgical Strike is a movie which would instill you with pride and respect for the Indian Armed Forces. 

This is the feeling you carry with you when you come out of the theater after watching the movie, ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’.

Based on the the historical surgical strikes, Uri is the tale of how the Indian Army gave a befitting reply to the terrorist attacks. I am really glad that I gave in to my son’s request and went to watch ‘Uri’. This movie is all about patriotism, pride and lots of adrenaline pumping moments.

Every Indian knows about the events that led to the surgical strikes, but watching it on screen makes you think how difficult is the job of our soldiers. Like any other war movie, it makes you think about the deep emotional turmoil, the loss and the suffering the military families endure. There are the unsung heroes.

For ordinary citizens like me, this movie takes us out of our comfort zone, it makes you think, how you can contribute to your country. You also understand about how much planning goes into strikes like this. You understand the power and the limitations of the government.

There  was a dialogue in the movie, ‘Indian army ne ye jung shuru nahi kiya, But we will bloody well finish it’. I heard claps, whistles and cheering.

All the actors did a great job, but my favorites were Vicky Kaushal and Paresh Rawal. Vicky owns the film, as he laughs, cries and shouts in anger making you feel everything he feels. Paresh Rawal deserves a round of applause for his nuanced performance as the NSA.

The pride of being an Indian is what every viewer will carry out. Some will display it publicly, like how I am doing it now, some will keep it in heart of their hearts.

I unabashedly proclaim that our armed forces are the best.

How’s the josh?  Very very high.
