Taran Adarsh
By Taran Adarsh (3.5/5)
Uri is one film that *should* be watched… Absorbing screenplay, superbly executed combat scenes, efficient direction [Aditya Dhar]… Uri is thrilling, gripping, instills patriotism, without getting jingoistic.

The Indian Express
By Shubhra Gupta (2/5)
That a film about a solider fighting to keep his country safe will be full of valour and 'desh-bhakti' is a given.
