Avrodh Trailer Review: It Revisits The Uri Strike!



Avrodh Trailer Review: It Revisits The Uri Strike! 10

We had a riveting feature film   on  the Uri surgical strikes in 2018 . Bluntly titled Uri the  film directed by Aditya Dhar  was  a  comprehensive  war epic. But  in many ways  it  was  unable  to  bring out the more elaborate  details that went   into  the planning and execution of  the surgical strikes.Two hours  is  not enough to tell a story so epic in its sweep .

The webseries  Avrodh : The  Siege Within  produced by  Applause Entertainment for SonyLIV   will  delve into  the entire  episode of   the Uri  surgical strike with  as much candour and conviction as the  streaming  platform  permits.Sources  say the  series   based  on  the  book  by   Shiv Aroor  and  Rahul Singh will spare  us none  of  the details.

The trailer of Avrodh brings across  a document  of  fortitude in a language that is racy and  frantic.  But authenticity never seems to be compromised here. None  of the frenetic  peccadilloes  or the  derivative distraction  of the recent  action film   Extraction  here.

Apparently  the producers  have spared  no expenses  to ensure Avrodh comes across as  a polished  product . In the the trailer  the production values are  of the  highest order, with  the  cuts and pauses in  the narrative effectively  navigating a story that really has no room for  respite.

The cast helmed by  reliable actors   knows  they are in this not just for the bucks. There is  far  more at stake here than entertainment.  But nonetheless, the trailer  suggests a series that will have us watching eagerly as  the blood and bullets explode  at  the  battlefront without glorifying the  act of military aggression.

Avrodh, produced for Applause Entertainment by Irada Entertainment, is a gritty and realistic account of India’s surgical strike, based on a chapter from Shiv Aroor and Rahul Singh’s book, India’s Most Fearless. Avrodh depicts the story of how the Indian Armed Forces displayed inimitable courage and operational precision in one of country’s landmark missions. 

Directed by Raj Acharya and with Samar Khan as the Show Runner, the show has an ensemble cast of very talented actors including Amit Sadh, Neeraj Kabi, Vikram Gokhale, Darshan Kumar, Madhurima Tuli, Anant Mahadevan, Pavail Gulati, Mohit Chauhan, Arif Zakaria. The show has been written by Harmanjit Singha, Sudeep Nigam, Abhishek Chaterjee and Aadhar Khurana.
