Article 15: Audience verdict

Article 15 is on a roll

Film distributor and trade analyst Raj Bansal posted on Twitter, "Congratulations @ayushmannk your new release #Article15 is being highly appreciated & is doing good business at Box Office."

Article 15 has received positive reviews. The Indian Express' Shubhra Gupta wrote in her review, "There’s a lot that’s well done in Article 15, even though some of it is too on the nose, like a primer-explainer of ‘rural caste oppression and urban ignorance’. And at places, it feels scattered because there’s too much going on. I found a few strands unconvincing: Sayani Gupta’s Gaura, who plays the older sister of one of the missing girls, has a vivid presence, but is wrong for the part; Zeeshan Ayyub’s rebel Dalit leader’s comings-and-goings take away from the proceedings. The romantic thread between the cop and his activist lady-love (Talwar) is a filler, and the thriller-like chase to-find–the-missing-girl tone feels gratuitous."
