Uri: The Surgical Strike

Uri: The Surgical Strike


At his wedding reception, young IFS officer Gautam (Mohit Raina) passionately recounts how he met his wife Ira (Diana Penty). He says, "Kyunki tum meri kismat ho," adding, "If I hadn't met you in London, it'd have been in Paris or Amsterdam." He is fully aware of how corny it is. However, it is the kind of speech a groom is expected to deliver.

 However, the na├»ve college student Jaggi (Sunny Kaushal), who crashed the wedding, failed to grasp the significance. He takes the message to heart and makes it the guide for his life. He meets NRI girl Kartika (Radhika Madan) in a sports camp three years later. She is a swimmer competing for a spot on the Indian squad, while he plays hockey.


But there's a problem. In three months, she will marry in London after already getting engaged. He begs her to cancel the nuptials. She claims that it's just hormones talking since she is more realistic. Separation will lessen their passion, and if, after three months, he does end up in London, she might call it off. 

He accepts her word for it and, a la Raj from DDLJ, sets out to court his Simran. The similarities stop there, though. He chooses to immigrate illegally because he lacks the wherewithal to get to London legally. He succeeds in to France, but the authorities apprehend him. Gautam, whose own marriage to Ira is in trouble, is none other than his Indian case officer.

We are all made fools by love, it is said. What is stupidity to one man is passion to another. And he only thinks about the object of his desire because of that intensity. That effectively sums up the history of Shiddat.

 It's an unbalanced narrative that only mirrors Jaggi's agony and pain. On the premise that Kartika loves him just as much as he does, he sets out on an expedition. Although there were two people who were deeply in love, the movie makes references to traditional love stories like Sohni-Mahiwal.

 The fact that Kartika hasn't even maintained in touch with him all these time demonstrates her incredible practicality. When he calls her from Paris, she assumes he is playing a practical joke. He is meaningless to her.


He is nothing more to her than a warm memory to cling to on chilly evenings. The main issue with the movie is that she isn't blazing with the same fervour as him. Her father drags her into her room and asks her to get married to the man he has picked out for her, just like the standard '90s love story. For now, that is an even bigger issue. Our sensibilities have not altered in the slightest throughout time. 

Girls have grown more liberated and independent over this time. Where is she rebelling now? Why isn't she joining him by swimming the English Channel like he does? She might have succeeded if she had been a champion swimmer. Why does she push herself so hard to find a place in India's you?


It is obvious that the authors were out of date. Mohit Raina and Diana Penty's love story, which was the catalyst for everything, is put on hold in order to support one man's mission. She is a liberal bleeding heart, whereas he is a career diplomat. However, their dispute isn't depicted in enough detail, which would have made for an intriguing thread.


Some powerful performances help to balance out the flawed writing. It was a very wise casting decision to pair Sunny Kaushal and Radhika Madan. It's a new coupling that unquestionably has a hot connection. Naturally talented performers Sunny and Radhika clearly love sparring with one another.


The movie moves along smoothly as long as they are on screen together. We are interested in learning more about them and watching how they develop their relationship. However, the DDLJ-obsessed filmmaker decided to cut that strand short for other reasons. 

Congratulations to Sunny and Radhika for giving their characters everything they had to offer and for bringing the film to life with their performances.

 Mohit Raina and Sunny's bromance is also on point. He gives the impression of being this jaded, cynical elder brother who has given up on love and finds Sunny's antics amusing. The movie gets a lot of needed seriousness from Raina. He also gets along reasonably well with Diana Penty. She is barely visible in the film, and we desire that

We regret that this brilliant actress doesn't have more to do in the film because she is hardly ever seen.

As previously stated, Shiddat is a film that is best suited for ardent romantics. The filmmaker Kunal Deshmukh also addressed the issue of illegal immigration in it, but just for cosmetic effect. 

This was done to make it seem more authentic. The major cast's performances have been credible thanks to him, though, and that is definitely a benefit. If only he had put in more time and effort on the script as well...
