A film that urges you to think on your outlook on things. A plot that will make you wonder, how is the country, with the second largest population in the world, working with disobeying one of the biggest rules of the Indian Constitution.
I love it when unusual and unspoken topics come out in the open to gain exposure. Anubhav Sinha, brings us another one of his master stories covering one of the biggest topics in India and probably in the world too, discrimination.
Article 15 speaks about the law of the same name in the constitution of India. It is a tale which describes the immense measures of filth which are used against people who are considered of a lower caste.
It is based on a couple of true incidents in India from the years 2014 and 2016. The way it has been portrayed by Sinha (writer and director), Gaurav Solanki (writer) and Ewan Mulligan (cinematography) is worth watching in the theater, at least once. A great combination of crime, drama and thriller genres along with a remarkable background score makes sure that the chill in your spine remains for a long time. There is hardly any musical videos displayed because of the intense script. Not that it was needed.
Some say that Ayushman Khurrana is always being overrated. But I’d say that he is doing what most big stars deny doing because of their “reputation”. He is working hard and it shows. In this one too, in fact, obviously in conjunction with a few incredible performers, Kumud Mishra, Manoj Pahwa, Isha Talwar, Sayani Gupta, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Akash Dhabhade, Ashish Verma, Veen and Ronjini Chakraborty.
