Highlights

  1. 'Article 15' has collected Rs 7.77 crore on its third day
  2. Anubhav Sinha has directed the film
  3. It's based on Article 15 of the Indian constitution

Ayushmann Khurrana's Article 15 managed to collect Rs 7.77 crore on its third day, which brings its overall collection so far to Rs 20.04 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who shared the film's box office performance, wrote: "Article 15 has a healthy weekend... Ample growth on Day 2 and 3... Metros strong, driving its business... Kabir Singh wave + #INDvENG #CWC19 cricket match [on Sunday] restrict overall growth... Weekdays crucial... Friday 5.02 crore, Saturday 7.25 crore, Sunday 7.77 crore. Total: Rs 20.04 crore. India business." Article 15 also surpassed Ayushamann's other films such as Andhadhun, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan in opening weekend business (more on that later). First, take a look at Article 15's performance as shared by Taran Adarsh:

In a separate tweet, Taran Adarsh shared the opening weekend collections of Ayushmann Khurrana's other movies. His last year release Badhaai Ho topped the list while Article 15 followed it at second position. The third, fourth and fifth positions were held by Andhadhun (2018), Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2017), and Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) respectively.

In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the Ayushmann Khurrana-led 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. Haven't we known all along what kind of people we are and what sort of denial we live in? Article 15 only serves as a grim and urgent reminder - and a call to action."

Directed by Anubhav Sinha, Article 15 is based on Article 15 of the Indian constitution, which forbids discrimination on the basis of religion, caste, place of birth and others. It showcases the story of a young IPS officer, who investigates the case of gang rape and murder of two Dalit girls.

Other than Ayushmann Khurrana, the film also features Isha Talwar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra, M Nassar, Ashish Verma, Sushil Pandey, Shubrajyoti Bharat, Ronjini Chakraborty and Zeeshan Ayyub.
