Article 15 review

Story of the movie:

Ayan Ranjan (Ayushmann), an upright IPS officer is given charge of the Lalgaon Police Station in the rural heartland of India. In the village of Lalgaon, three teenage girls go missing. Ayan’s colleagues, (Manoj Pahwa and Kumud Mishra) tell him the girls will turn up. But the next morning, when two of them are found hanging from a tree, it confirms that something horrible has happened to them.  In the dreadful situation, Ayan confronts caste disparities and uncomfortable truths about the people of the society. Will he able to prevent these caste-based crimes and discrimination?

Star Performance:

Ayushmann Khurrana as IPS officer has delivered a brilliant performance in the film. Sayani Gupta as Gaura speaks volumes with her messed up hair and ragged dresses. Another brilliant performance is by Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub. This man, even in an extended special performance, leaves a mark. While, others like Manoj Pahwa and Kumud Mishra have done justice to their roles.

Music Direction:

The film’s music is good.

Direction: 

The film’s direction is good. The film is shot in the outskirts of Delhi, and cinematographer Ewan Mulligan has evocatively captured the spirit of these places. Dialogues are worthy. The film’s storyline, interspersed with powerful and poignant moments leaves you with goose-bumps. The narrative definitely keeps you on the edge, but there are times when it feels a tad overstuffed as the layers, political intricacies and a multitude of characters seep in. 

Watch Or Not:

Go and watch this film!
