Patriotism and nationalism are running hot and high in and around multiplexes today, owing to the release of two of this year's most anticipated movies. 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' and 'The Accidental Prime Minister' have hit the cinema screens across the country today, and enthusiastic movie-goers have been queuing up outside cinema halls since early morning.

Certainly, as per the recent norms, Twitter has been kind enough to bombard other interested film enthusiasts with their personal reviews. We decided to do a round up of the initial Twitter verdict on Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam and Paresh Rawal starrer 'Uri', based on what Twitter users have to say about it.
For the uninitiated, 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' is based on the surgical attacks of 2016. The plot sheds light on the numerous terrorist attacks that took place on the Indian side of the Line of Control (LOC), which eventually prompted the government to plan the surgical strikes.

Vicky plays the role of Major Vihaan Shergill, Paresh Rawal will be seen as National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, while Yami Gautam will portray the role of an intelligence officer.
As per the initial reviews surfacing on Twitter, the general verdict is that the movie manages to recreate the incidents leading up to the surgical strikes, while the characters stay true to their character and don't go overboard volleying around their emotional baggage. The audience has appreciated the movie's screenplay, and vouched for its patriotism instilling storytelling and well-executed combat scenes. Some have even hailed the movie as one of the best war-movies since 'Border'!
