Uri: The Surgical Strike has been well received by the audiences since it released on 11 January. Featuring Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam, the film has now joined the Rs 100 crore club. It is the first Hindi language film of 2019 to cross this milestone. Though the revenue collected is not the benchmark for success, it should be acknowledged because many mid-budget films have witnessed excellent footfall in theatres for their content, and not for a star-studded cast.

The opening week collection of Uri: The Surgical Strike was higher than that of 2018 successes like RaaziStreeBadhaai Ho as well as Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.

Directed by debutant Aditya Dhar, Uri: The Surgical Strike has been produced by Ronnie Screwvala under the banner of RSVP Movies. The film is based on the Indian Army's 2016 surgical strikes on militant launch pads of 'Pakistan Administered Kashmir' as a retaliation to the Uri attack.

Meanwhile, Emraan Hashmi's social-drama, Why Cheat Indiawhich released on 18 January has not seen much growth in its collection. The film's current earnings are Rs 6.80 crore. Why Cheat India even received the lowest opening among all Hashmi films that have released since 2013, including  BaadshahoAzhar and Raaz Reboot.
