Article 15, which also stars Sayani Gupta, Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Kumud Mishra, M Nassar, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Shubrajyoti Bharat, Ronjini Chakraborty and Zeeshan Ayyub, has been directed by Anubhav Sinha. The film is based on Article 15 of the Indian constitution, which forbids discrimination on the basis of religion, caste, place of birth and others. It revolves around the story of a young IPS officer, who investigates the case of gang rape and murder of two Dalit girls despite the issues he face because of the strict caste system prevailing in the area.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Ayushmann's film 4 stars out of 5 and wrote: "Article 15 punches us in the face with the force and precision of a heavyweight pugilist's fist. The blow sends us reeling because nothing that the gritty, unflinching film tells us is a revelation... Article 15 only serves as a grim and urgent reminder - and a call to action."
