Talented Vicky Kaushal starrer ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ is riding high on Josh and has now crossed the 100 crore mark.
The movie has impressed a large amount of audience and the box-office numbers are proving it!
Sharing the film’s latest achievement on his official twitter handle, Indian film critic Adarsh wrote, “And Uri crosses 100 cr. Sure, 100 cr is not the yardstick to gauge the success of a film, however, it should be celebrated when mid-sized films like Raazi, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Badhaai Ho,#Stree and Uri: The Surgical Strike hit a century. Content is king and the audiences are kingmakers!”
And #Uri crosses ₹ 💯 cr… Sure, ₹ 💯 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!

The film, which released in theatres on January 11, is based on the 2016 Indian Army’s surgical strikes in Pakistan following the attacks in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri town.
While the numbers speak for themselves, the grand success of the film is evident as the film’s catchphrase “How’s the Josh” has managed to take the internet by storm. The trend is being followed by everybody from children to The Prime Minister of India.
‘Uri’ earned Rs. 8.20 crore on the first day of its release. On the first weekend, the collective budget of the film amounted to estimated Rs. 28 crore.
