‘Uri- The Surgical Strike’ hits double century at the box office in fourth week


Vicky Kaushal starrer ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ finally crossed a huge benchmark and hit 200 crore mark in its fourth week. Several movies were released during its run but none was big enough to give it even a small competition. And with this, it has become the first medium budget movie to go this far.

Meanwhile, the movie has broken several records, created history and emerged as the first blockbuster of this year.

‘Uri’ had a historic fourth week at the box office, as the movie collected a record-breaking amount of ₹18.67 crores. The movie even broke Day 23 and Day 24 records held by the blockbuster film ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’.

Biz analyst Taran Adarsh called it “MONSTROUS HIT” in one of his earlier hits. He even tweeted about the films day to day earning in its fourth week.

He wrote, “ is SENSATIONAL… Emerges highest grossing film in *Week 4* [₹ 29.02 cr], after #Baahubali2 [#Hindi; ₹ 29.40 cr]… #Uri *Week 4* is higher than *Week 4* of #Dangal, #Sanju, #PK, #TZH, #BajrangiBhaijaan, #Padmaavat, #Sultan… Incredible indeed!”

‘Uri’ has beaten every outright Hindi film be it ‘Sanju’, ‘PK’, ‘Dangal’ or ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. The 2009 film ‘3 Idiots’ had the highest fourth-weekend collection a little over ₹9.50 crore net.

According to the Box Office India, the film’s 28-day business is better than some of the last year’s big films like ‘2.0’ (Hindi), ‘Baaghi 2’ and ‘Thugs of Hindostan’.

The film has done a huge business overseas as films made around Kashmir or Pakistan issue tend to be a no show for the huge Muslim audience overseas. But the film had managed to collect ₹273 crores worldwide.

Aditya Dhar directorial has been financed by Ronnie Screwvala and it stars Yami GautamMohit RainaParesh Rawal, and Kirti Kulhari.
