Debutant Aditya Dhar is on heights of his career as a director with the success of Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Yami Gautam starrer war movie, Uri: The Surgical Strike. Although the movie received average foot-fall on its opening weekend but recent stats prove that Uri is a hit.
Uri has crossed Rs 100 crore mark on the 10th day of its release. Based on the first-ever surgical strike of Indian army as a result of attacks on Uri camp base Kashmir, the movie has become the first blockbuster of 2019.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took it to his official Twitter account for postin about the same. Taran wrote: “And #Uri crosses Rs 100 cr... Sure, Rs 100 cr is *not* the yardstick to gauge the success of a film, but it should be celebrated when mid-sized films like #SKTKS, #Raazi, #Stree, #BadhaaiHo and #UriTheSurgicalStrike hit century... Content is king and the audiences are king makers!.”
In a yet another post, Taran mentioned that Uri has crossed 100-crore mark faster than Tanu Weds Manu Returns. “Days taken to reach Rs 100 cr by medium-budget films...
#UriTheSurgicalStrike: Day 10
#TWMReturns: Day 11
#Stree: Day 16
#Raazi: Day 17
#BadhaaiHo: Day 17
#SKTKS: Day 25
Nett BOC. India biz,” wrote Adarsh.
On a related note, Uri is the first solo movie of Raazi actor Vicky who has successfully created a space for himself in the industry as an established actor. Co-star Yami also shared her views on the success of Uri.
“Very happy with the kind of response that the film has earned and is continuing to have a great run at the box office. I’m very grateful to the team behind the film, everyone has truly worked very hard. Its amazing to have producers like Ronnie who believe in their content and invest in people like us.
