How to address the important issue and how to create issues while addressing them, in Article 15.
The writer and director Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15 does look like reading a formal government paper. It is informational, important, serves a purpose to the society that we live in, but that is it. Nothing beyond in. As far as the trajectory of these characters or even the plot. The way it enfolds remains standard and progresses in the opposite direction. And I say the opposite direction for it doesn’t actually progresses in a consistent or any pace. There are multiple scenarios in the film where the camera insists on sticking with these characters more than necessary. And what is oddly unsettling is that the editing, cinematography and the background score frames it as these two opposing ideologies pitting against each other which didn’t work on paper and is dependent a lot on the actors when it comes alive on screen. P.S. I love the hero since he doesn’t feel heroic at all.
