Ayushmann Khurrana is known for his extraordinary choice of films along with the finesse and sincerity with which he delivers each performance. His choices range from rom-coms to thrillers to films that hold up a mirror to the society. The last genre is what best describes his latest release – Article 15. The crime drama revolves around Article 15 of the Indian Constitution, which prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth.
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, Article 15 stars Ayushmann in the lead as IPS officer, Ayan Ranjan, along with an incredible ensemble cast including stellar supporting performances by Kumud Sharma, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, and M Nasser.
The movie is scheduled for a worldwide theatrical release on the 28th of June which is tomorrow has already premiered at the 10th edition of London Indian Film Festival earlier this month. The film’s story, stirring performances and direction tied together with its thought-provoking subject received a positive response on its opening night at the film festival too.
Ahead of the film’s theatrical release, Article 15 is also being highly praised by the media and netizens who’ve watched the film. Here are some of the Twitter reactions that are sure to leave you looking forward to the film:
Banksy had famously said “Art should comfort the disturbed & disturb the comfortable”
Article 15 by @anubhavsinha does exactly that. One of the best films I’ve ever watched. After the film got over I took a long silent ride back home just reflecting, that’s how impactful it is.
