Article 15 impersonal film or tapsee pannu plays a hindu lawyer who defends her muslim father-in-law against charges of terrorism towards the end she asks in court who decides what is terrorism ya untouchability terrorism here in article 15 on above establishes that untouchability is in fact terrorism and perhaps it's more dangerous because it's a daily lived reality that dictates people's jobs living conditions where they worship how they eat and much more, article 15 of the indian constitution prohibits discrimination on the grounds, of religion race caste sex or place of birth but in much of India caste,continues to constitute identity article 15 is that rare thing a mainstream Hindi film that confronts this horror for that alone it deserves applause in article 15 an above and co-writer Gaurav solanki structure a social cause as a police, procedural we're told that the film is fiction though it's obviously inspired, by the notorious 2014 banana gang rape and murder case in which two young girls, both minors were found hanging from a tree ayushman Khurana is ayaan a cop who leads the investigative team to unravel the heinous crime in Largo a small town somewhere noopy ion describes it as the wild wild west ion is a stand-in for, people like us urban educated about last Indians he's a cosplay Saint stiff and educated Brahmin...

Whoso westernized that his girlfriend calls him Frankie in one of the film's best scenes he attempts to understand the various divisions in his team and is told that even within the most suppressed there's a hierarchy he explodes at the absurdity of it thank you, Marcus - macula not love never mind the same irony me sir what Carnac experiment ever subject of a little absurd you buddy this is a world of horrific oppression and dop Ian Mulligan envelops it in a gloomy darkness he scenes take place at night the fog of Lies is literal as mist and clouds of dust swirl a fellow cop, pleads with ion not to disturb the Sun Tolan of balance but wants to do exactly what he wants to shatter a comfortable believe that in the 21st century India casts no longer matters so would see close-ups of the limp bodies of the dead girls, which is followed by a routine conversation about how to loosen the ropes and lower them to the ground I know?? Bob wants us to understand exactly what injustice looks and feels like subtlety is not his strong point but honor, Bob has a real talent for staging drama aided by an effective background score by monkish third K our Naboth keeps the narrative grim and gripping in places through the messaging seems to overwhelm the storytelling the film is trying to make too many points and somewhere along...

The way the various threats scatter article 15 is of course about the brutality of the caste system but it's also about ions journey to find himself he's a reluctant IPS officer in one scene his girlfriend says don't you hold her tongue wound up in each other but their relationship isn't fleshed out enough which is also the case with Mashhad played by Mohammed's Ishaan Ayub angora played by shayana Gupta Mashhad is a firebrand leader described as Dalit Anka Robin Hood but the writing doesn't do justice to his character Kumud Mishra and Manoj power who both play cops bring much more heft both are such skilled performers it's a real pleasure to see them spa much of the load is on Irishman who's well cast in the role of a decent man who becomes an alien in his own country his anger and frustration has real conviction especially good in a scene in which he's explaining to a CBI officer why it's important to do the right thing but I have to say that the film seems to stumble on his stardom article 15 wants to establish him as the savior hero so we get the spread to perfection hair and slow motion walk hush man is also saddled with some clunky dialogue him one scene he says it's messed up and I will unmask it in mark an above gave us a more intimate story of a family that we could emotionally invest in article 15 doesn't allow for that but on above succeeds in showing us that the heart of darkness isn't in some far-flung corner of India it's within us because at the very least we've supported this inhumane, year old car system with little things like keeping separate dishes for the house set in one scene a man enters a gutter to unclog it and emerges changed in filth his work keeps our life sanitized literally and figuratively article 15 compels you to recognize this and that is a considerable achievement for more reviews like this subscribe to film companion and don't forget to check out our website film companion dot in.
