Earning more than Rs 50 crore at the Box Office through a simple word of the mouth publicity, Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam‘s Uri: The Surgical Strike has become the first hit of the year 2019 and demand for the full movie for free download online is quite high. Looking out for pirated prints of the movie to watch online in 1080p HD, 720p and 480p for free, netizens are massively searching for the war-drama using keywords like Uri: The Surgical Strike TamilRockers, Uri: The Surgical Strike Strike movie download, Uri: The Surgical Strike strike full movie free download, Uri: The Surgical Strike full movie, Uri: The Surgical Strike movie download free, Uri: The Surgical Strike movie watch online, Uri: The Surgical Strike online watch, Uri: The Surgical Strike movie download 720p, Uri: The Surgical Strike movie download 480p, Uri: The Surgical Strike movie download openload, Uri: The Surgical Strike online watch free and more.
In an amazing marketing ploy, the makers of Uri: The Surgical Strike have tricked the users into illegally downloading the movie by having uploaded a torrent claiming to contain the Aditya Dhar directorial. Once the user downloads the 4GB file from a torrent they are in for a shock. While the first few seconds roll out the movie perfectly, the clip then shows Vicky Kaushal talking to the screen and hilariously trolling the users for having come this far only to be fooled. Yami then joins him and reveals that those who could conduct a surgical strike and get secretly into another country can as well get into your screens as you stayed unalarmed. They then announce that the movie should be watched in theatres and not illegally. We can already imagine the bruised feelings of the users who get to lose a hefty 4GB worth of data all for downloading a mere public service announcement.

The critics are calling it a marketing genius as the effort might not discourage piracy but it certainly did make one feel wrong for a few minutes and waste almost 4 GB of their data. Optimistically, someone may get impressed enough to actually turn to a theatre and watch the movie that also stars Mohit Raina and Kriti Kulhari in pivotal roles.
