Talking about the movie, our in-house film critic Sreeju Sudhakaran wrote in his review, "There is no doubt that Uri will catch the attention of the viewers with the terrorist attack and the retaliation still fresh in our minds (and if not, there will be factors linked to the upcoming elections to remind you of that). Vicky Kaushal is very effective as the leading man. Uri, however, needed a surgical strike on its writing, as most of its effectiveness is lost in the balance between jingoism and realism."
