India biz. BLOCKBUSTER.#Uri is not going to slow down soon... Should emerge the highest grossing medium-budget film, surpassing the *lifetime biz* of #TWMReturns. #HowsTheJosh
Sharing the film's latest achievement on his twitter handle, Indian film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, "And Uri crosses 100 cr. Sure, 100 cr is not the yardstick to gauge the success of a film, but it should be celebrated when mid-sized films like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Raazi, #Stree, Badhaai Ho and Uri: The Surgical Strike hit a century. Content is king and the audiences are kingmakers!"
The film, which hit big screens on January 11, is based on the 2016 Indian Army's surgical strikes in Pakistan following the attacks in Jammu and Kashmir's Uri town.
While the numbers speak for themselves, the success of the film is evident as the film's catchphrase "How's the Josh" has managed to take the internet by storm. The trend is being followed by everybody from children to The Prime Minister of India.
The film minted Rs. 8.20 crore on the first day of its release. On the first weekend, the collective earnings of the film amounted to approximately Rs. 28 crore. (ANI)
