The movie, which had received positive reviews from critics, follows Major Vihaan Singh Sherghil of the Indian Army, who played a leading role in organizing the 2016 strike. The surgical strike, which had taken place in September 2016 after a terror attack in Uri, was conducted against militant launch pads across the Line of Control in Pakistani-administered Kashmir by the Indian Army.
