In my beloved n beautiful India, men martyred at the border r outnumbered by those who die cleaning the sewers n no one mourns for em.

Caste n communal politics by the fascists in India is responsible for the deterioration of my beloved India. The film is beautifully-shot, superbly-acted and has a plot that is very very disturbing. Fans of Marshland, Memories of Murder n True Detective S1 will definitely like this. In rural northern India two underage girls r raped n hanged on a tree while a third one is missing. An honest cop investigates the heinous crime but comes face to face with the brutal realities of caste discrimination. As the investigation leads us among the desolated fields, filthy swamps, between thick trees, through tall weeds and abandoned tannery, the landscape never looks less than beautiful. Yet the makers do not shy away from the ugly reality and there are some truly ugly moments including when the girl's bodies' are found hanging. The film is beautifully-shot, superbly-acted and has a plot that is disturbing but a reality still existing in 21st century. Ayushman gave a restrained but terrific performance. Director Anubhav Sinha (Mulk) shud be applauded for making Mulk n Article 15. He has dealt with relevant issues which is plaguing India which unfounately no other filmmakers in India is bothered about. The cinematography by Ewan Mulligan enhances the viewing experience, with the rural landscapes feeling appropriately desolate. There are some high overhead shots that add to the sense of vastness. Zeeshan Ayyub gave a memorable performance, a scholar turned into a rebel. His lines before the climax is heart wrenching. He says in the film that men martyred at the border r outnumbered by those who die cleaning the sewers n no one mourns for them. Very disturbing that India is the only place where manual scavenging still exists, where poor fellas clean human excreta by their bare hands. This ain't not similar to Mississippi Burning. Devgan's Aakrosh is an unofficial remake of Mississippi Burning with a different subject n much scarier than Article 15.

Must watch movie for Every indian

Anubhav Sinha's 'Article 15' is designed like a crime thriller. And what works for the film is that it's thought provoking, hard hitting while unflinchingly bringing to light burning social issues. The film is heavy on atmospherics, with the top notch cinematography (Ewan Mulligan) and background score adding to the mood. The feel is grim, gritty and grey often bringing a chill to the bone with palpable tension in the air. The images - some provocative and uncomfortable stand out, like the one where a man goes deep into a drain to unclog it and emerges soaked in the filth or the top shot of a group of policemen conducting a search in a swamp with their torchlights. The dialogues leave an impact. And the director brings out subtle nuances through his characters and setting which add to the essence of the narrative. 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. And at times the pace dips. But certainly, the performances by an ace set of actors is one of the high points of the film. Ayushmann Khurana has you hooked instantly, belting out a riveting performance as the sincere, determined police officer. It's an intense, gripping act as he gets under the skin of his character. Other noteworthy scene stealers include actors Manoj Pahwa, Kumud Mishra and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub, in a short but impactful role as Nishad. 'Article 15' is not a light watch, but it is definitely relevant, compelling and a film that will spark conversation.
