Article 15 movie review
‘मैं और तुम इन्हें दिखाई ही नहीं देते हैं। हम कभी हरिजन हो जाते हैं तो कभी बहुजन हो जाते हैं। बस जन नहीं बन पा रहे कि जन गण मन में हमारी भी गिनती हो जाए। इंसाफ की भीख मत मांगो बहुत मांग चुके।’
This Dialogue is enough to show the irony and screaming shown in the film Article 15 (directed by Anubhav Sinha) who is also known for his outstanding direction in the movie “MULK”.
Article 15 of the Constitution written by Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar, 69 years ago which clearly states that any citizen of India should not be discriminated on the basis of their, religion, dynasty, race, gender, birthplace or any of these, but this discrimination is still in the society and affected it so horribly that to make realize the status of a class special (Dalits), they (upper class) not only raped their daughter but also hang them on the tree after killing them.
IPS officer Ayan Ranjan (Ayushman Khurrana) is given charge of Lalonga police station in Madhya Pradesh. Returned from Europe after completing his higher studies, Ayan is very eager to come to this area, but talking to her friend Aditi (Isha Talwar) on messages, she tells that a different world exists there in that area which does not match urban lifestyle. Right now, Ayan did not understand the atmosphere of that place he was reported that three Dalit girls working in the factory are missing, but their FIRs have not been registered. Manoj Pahwa and Kumud Mishra, who work in that police station, tell him that this is what happens to these people. Girls run away from home. Then they come back and many times their parents hang them under Honor Killing. Ayan gets the impression that the Dalit girl Gaura (Sayani Gupta) and villagers are unaware that the truth is something else. When he tries to go in depth of it, he sees a mud spreading in the name of caste, in which lots of authority person have included ranging from ministers to the officer of the police station.
Ayan is pressurized to investigate this heart thrilling case of gang rape under honor killing, But he but Ayaan is committed to expose the cruel and dirty face of this social inequality. The biggest trait in the direction of Anubhav Sinha is that he introduced this abominable form of racism in the thriller style and when the layers of the story begin to open with a sense of horror, you get shocked from the real character of these so-called decent, family loving and white collared people.
The scene in the film is shocking when Ayan learns that girls were raped and killed just after demanding more than three rupees a day’s wages. There are many such delusional scenes in the film. The director has kept the film realistic in every way.
Some scenes filmed in Cinematography of Evan Mulligan distract you. Whether it is a scene when girls hanging mouth black on a tree or the worker going inside the drain to clean it.
Similar to the direction and cinematography, some Heart-piercing dialogues are not less flattery. Like Dalit leader Zeeshan Ayub’s dialogue,
“ये उस किताब को नहीं चलने देते जिसकी शपथ लेते हैं।
Ayushman reacts – ‘यही तो लड़ाई है उस किताब की चलानी पड़ेगी उसी से चलेगा ये देश।’
This kind of dialogues forces people to think. The music of Mangesh Thakde is influential. The supporting cast is the cornerstone of the acting film. As a committed police officer for a handsome, fearless and framing, Ayushman Khurana has done a great job at this level of career. His character has been that he has not let it over the top anywhere. Sayani Gupta has acted as a Gaura, Zeissan Ayub leaves the impact despite a small role. The acting of Manoj Pahwa and Kumud Mishra is wonderful. The actress who played the teenage actress has instinctively acted. Isha Talwar has received less screen space, but she has done justice with her role
