India, which has a long history of indigenously produced war films reflecting its real world conflicts, has now thrown down the gauntlet for modern warfare action cinema with the film Uri: The Surgical Strike.
While watching Uri, I kept wondering about the point of such a self-congratulatory film.
Uri becomes a cautionary tale of how even an original filmmaking voice can mean little if confined to a time of strategic jingo
Ultimately, though, this dance between realistic terrorist drama and rousing action thriller proves to be too much.
Whichever side of the political divide one may stand, one can't dismiss Dhar's canniness and craft, despite knowing that he is lionising the obvious and providing a one-sided narrative.
As Vihaan, Vicky Kaushal is a big reason why the film works, bringing a vulnerability and strength to his character that makes him the ideal war film hero.
Uri is the more effective - and insidious - of the films. Impressively gritty action sequences bookend moments of sycophancy towards the government.
There's something hugely inspirational about watching a band of brave soldiers take down the bad guys. Give this film a sure shot.
The film is a fitting tribute to the Indian Army conceptually but cinematically, it's not a film without flaws.
The patriotic fervour behind the project can't be denied and better detailing definitely would have added another layer to the film.
