Great concept, strong performances and fantastic dialogues make this one a must watch
Last year Anubhav Sinha came up with the film Mulk that spoke about the prejudice towards Muslims. Now this year, he has come up with a movie that talks about the inequality that happens in our country with Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.

Read Detail Review
Anubhav Sinha loves the genre of social drama. While we all would remember him for directing a love story like Tum Bin, this man is coming up with hard-hitting social dramas back-to-back. After Mulk, now it is Article 15. Sinha has very well narrated the film and has tackled the issue of inequality quite well. But the problem is that the movie has too many sub-plots and Sinha fails to get them all together and sum it up well.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Article 15 is about IPS officer Ayan Ranjan (Ayushmann) who has been posted in a town named Lalgunj, UP. As soon as he enters the district he sees the discrimination in the castes in the villages. On the second day of his posting it self, two girls from the SC are hanged on the tree and killed. While people around him tell him it is honour killing, he goes deep into the case and a lot of things are opened up.
The basic plot of the film about how SCs are still treated in the interiors of our country is fantastic. But as we said earlier there are too many things happening because of which the main plot goes haywire in between somewhere. However, from the interval point the movie picks up once again and how.
Ayushmann Khurrana has given a brilliant performance. It is clearly one if his best performances of his career. Sayani Gupta is outstanding and proves that she is one of the bests we have in Bollywood. Kumud Mishra and Manoj Pahwa leave a mark. Nassar doesn’t have much to do.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
There are no songs in the film apart from the rap track that comes in the end credit. The track has some really good lyrics. Even the background score is quite good in the film.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Anubhav Sinha comes up with an interesting social drama with Ayushmann Khurrana’s performance as the highlight.
