Uri: The Surgical Strikes starring Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam released last week and has received great reviews from both audience and critics. The theatres are running houseful thanks to the powerful performance by the cast, but we suggest you better get in (the) line and watch the drama-thriller movie at a theatre near you.
Piracy is a big problem in India and the illegal downloading cause filmmakers to lose out on a lot of money, because these torrents release complete films for free. Same goes for online streaming. In fact, movies and TV shows often get leaked even before they are released. Remember the leaked 'The Spoils of War' episode of Game Of Thrones Season 7? Four people in the country got arrested for this!
So, the makers of Uri have found a hack to prevent such illegal leaks and downloads of the film in their own creative way and you won't see it coming until your torrent notifies you with a 'Download Complete'. Here is what happened when few users put the movie on download.
SPOILER ALERT: "Jab hamari army unki territory me ghus ke aatankvaadio ko maar sakti hai, toh kya hum aapke torrent me nahi ghus sakte?", is what you will hear Yami Gautam say.
When people downloaded close to 4GB of the movie, all they got was this one-minute clip with the movie's opening scene.
Brilliant isn't it?
The filmmakers themselves released this fake clip working on a simple logic that most people would give up on the idea after downloading a file as heavy as 3.8 GB.
