Aditya Dhar’s Uri Has Become The Biggest Debutant Directed Film Ever Surpassing Kick

Jyothi Venkatesh

Aditya Dhar who made his directorial debut with URI is soaring high on the success of the film, which is now the highest rated Hindi film ever on IMDB.Quiz him on whether he’d like to revisit Raat Baaki with a different cast and he says, “I haven’t figured my next film yet but it will be one of the scripts I’ve written over the last seven years. It could be Raat Baaki which is a fun film. Everybody was sad when things didn’t materialise. I don’t rule out the possibility of another film either. Uri was an exhausting film and I’m on a break right now but will soon return to one of my ideas.”Uri is the most successful film helmed by a debutant, surpassing the previous record holder Sajid Nadiadwala’s Salman Khan’s Kick. Aditya is understandably proud of the feat, he believes records are meant to be broken. “Not in our wildest dream did we think we would get so much appreciation and adulation from the audience. It was a special film as it was a tribute to the army, but the numbers we have earned are insane given it was my debut as a director and Vicky’s first commercial film as the solo lead. I hope, some other debutant breaks my record soon,” he smiles, admitting it’s overwhelming when politicians use lines from his film like “How’s The Josh?” and “Yeh Naya India Hai.”After Uri, Vicky has become a mainstream Hindi actor and Aditya hopes to see his hero scale new heights. “He has reached this position after a lot of struggle and toil. He’s got talent so this thing was bound to happen, sooner or later. It’s just that I recognized his potential as a commercial actor before anyone else,” Aditya signs off with a twinkle.

Yami Gautam takes a cue from Jessica Chastain for Uri!

Yami Gautam will soon be seen in Aditya Dhar’s Uri – The Surgical Strike starring Vicky Kaushal essaying the lead captain who was at the forefront of the real life surgical strike of 2016, in retaliation to the cowardice attacks by Pakistan on unarmed Indian military personnel in Uri, Kashmir. Yami plays an intelligence officer and the actress went through an array of things for  preparation to get into the skin of a character, something she’s never done before. With the zeal to star in a real life Indian army story, Yami even went through a look transformation to give herself the edge to look the part on screen choosing her tresses for a more cleaner, serious look.

Osama Bin Laden became the ground inspiration for Yami for her role in Uri

From what we have gathered in the trailer, her character is a no nonsense thorough intelligence analyst and Yami took great deal of inspiration from the 2012 iconic film, Zero Dark Thirty. The film which has Jessica Chastain in the lead role of Maya, a fictional CIA officer leading the hunt for Osama Bin Laden became the ground inspiration for Yami for her role in Uri. She positively felt that Jessica’s role and her efforts were impeccable and is a great base of homework for any actor essaying a role of armed services professional on screen.
 
Speaking about the inspiration, Yami said, “Zero dark thirty is personally one of my favourite films. Jessica was at her best in that film and the effort the entire team put into the film was beyond. The film definitely deserved every accolades it got. Jessica’s character of an intelligence officer was truly inspirational and did create a good growing for me to just watch it and understand its various nuances the role and the profession demands. Everything from the voice to the body language as an officer, each of these things matter a lot. And Jessica did an impeccable job and it helped me quite a bit when I was to begin shooting for Uri”

Elated with the response of the URI trailer, Aditya Dhar says, “I never thought about it but it feels great to see such a good response. It is an amazing feeling. It is great that many political leaders have shared and liked the trailer on social media but I have made this film for Indian Army and not for any political party. This is least we could do as filmmakers for Indian Army.”
It is noticeable that since the time the trailer is released, it has been trending on social media and received enormous attention from people even across nation. On claims of a lot of Indian fans targeting Pakistani Twitterati and claiming a digital surgical strike on Pakistan Internet, he adds, “I am glad but I want people to come and watch the film and realise that how much our Indian Army sacrifies.”
With much noise soon after the trailer was released, the tension between two rival nations risen. Interestingly, even BJP leaders went onto share the trailer on their twitter accounts and it resulted into a massive hue and cry. When asked about to throw some light on the same, he says, “People will come to know about the reality once our film will be out on January 11th, 2019.”
Saddened by the attacks after the trailer launch, Aditya feels, “It is actually sad but I believe our Indian Army will fight back against them with full power.”
Aditya is absolutely not concerned about his film not releasing in Pakistan. He further says, “I don’t care if URI doesn’t gets a theatrical release in Pakistan. I have made this film for my country, my people and my Indian Army. It would be great if people from Pakistan would see this film since it is not made against any individual but rather terrorism. I am not here to clear misunderstandings.”
