Avrodh Will Take An Indepth Look At The Uri Strike



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 pauses.

 The cast helmed by  reliable actors  like  Neeraj Kabi,  Anant Mahadevan and Amit Sadh  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.
