      Review Good Article 15

      Genre:Social/Crime

      When I was slogging it out for the UPSC for a period of 1 year, I was required to mug up all those various articles,amendments and the like present in the most important book in our country. Despite my bureaucratic career being nipped in the bud, I still had the words present in the constitution embedded somewhere in the back of my mind. But my actual experience with discrimination and casteism arose when I was plucked and planted right into the cow belt for my sorry excuse of a job. Eating from separate bone china plates, being asked for my surname and where I would be present in the caste hierarchy by educated polished youth too made me disillusioned about the cluster**** that is the Hindu Caste System.

      Article 15, the movie made me realise that I had not exactly got the bad end of the bargain. In the movie, 3 Dalit minors are raped, 2 are hung by some upper caste miscreants. The investigation is being fronted by a Brahmin IPS dude who is so unaware about the viciousness of caste politics that he faces insurmountable obstacles in booking the culprits. It’s a straightforward police procedural story.But what makes it stand out is the daring shown by all the makers in not pulling any punches, A scene wherein the cop tries to make sense of where he lies between Dalits,Chamars,Thakurs,Mahants,Brahmins and Kayasthas is played out for laughs. But the social commentary is so biting and incisive that beneath all the laughs we realise how rotten our system is.

      The supporting cast comprising of names like Kumurd Mishra,Manoj Pahwa,Isha Talwar,Sayani Gupta,Mohammed Zeeshanand Nasser are magnificent, The sepia tone and the way the whole movie is shot(The cinematography in the initial portions resemble a horror movie, and as the movie moves towards and optimistic conclusion,the fog dissipates from the screen). But Ayushmann deserves a pat on the back for showing the guts to be the leading actor for this flick,

      As I write this,the movie is getting unofficially banned in several parts of the cow belt. It is a grave reminder of the fact that even if India takes a giant stride towards the moon, our other foot is still caked in cowdung
