1. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 4/5
Ayushmann Khurana has you hooked instantly, belting out a riveting performance as the sincere, determined police officer. It’s an intense, gripping act as he gets under the skin of his character. 'Article 15' is not a light watch, but it is definitely relevant, compelling and a film that will spark conversation.

Rating Score -> 4/5
Starkly photographed and crisply edited, the film is 130 minutes peppered with diverse relationships and more important has a gripping beginning-middle and end. Bravo Anubhav Sinha and proud of you Ayushman Khurana for your choices. I rate Article 15 with 4 stars.

Rating Score -> 4/5
Article 15 is remarkable in that it does not pontificate. It merely holds up the mirror to a society still entangled in age-old caste politics that absolutely overrides the modern ideals of liberty and equality. After Masaan, Article 15 is that rare film which articulates the existential angst of the ‘Others’- the unprivileged castes in contemporary India.

Rating Score -> 4/5
ARTICLE 15 by Anubhav Sinha is the resilience of one man triggered by a tragedy faced by a particular community which in fact reminds the horrors and inhuman behavior of a certain section of humans towards a certain section of humans since centuries. It’s a reminder how the cruel caste and religion divide has resulted in countless souls beaten down, literally and metaphorically. Powerfully painful & soothingly healing, an empowering piece of cinema that offers hope and salvation that is so necessary in today’s time. Very highly recommended.

Rating Score -> 4/5
When Ayan Ranjan gets inside the police headquarters for the first time, there are portraits of Ambedkar and Gandhiji hung on the wall. Anubhav Sinha pays respect to both these legends, first by focusing on the Article 15 clause near the interval. Then towards the end, we get to hear 'Vaishnava Jana', Gandhiji's favourite song in a very lovely scene. Article 15 not only is a tribute to what these leaders represented, but also holds a stark, sturdy mirror to what we are becoming. Brilliantly written, brilliantly performed, Article 15 is impactful beyond measure!

6. Deccan Chronicle -

Rating Score -> 4/5
Overall, 'Article 15' is a gripping social thriller anchored by excellent performances and a strong script that's rich in social commentary. With Anubhav Sinha's straightforward and unflashy directorial style, the film proves to be an effective drama. It may be devoid of spectacle, but it is still full of zeal and warrants a must watch.

7. Hindustan Times / Raja Sen -

Rating Score -> 4.5/5
Article 15, Anubhav Sinha’s searing new film about the indignities endorsed by the caste-system in modern day India, does not play it cool. Inspired by the real-life Badaun killings — and paying stirring tribute to Alan Parker’s 1988 procedural thriller Mississippi Burning — this film about discrimination features policemen hushing up the murder and gang-rape of three 15-year-old girls because they belong to a ‘lower’ caste. Us, and them. It is a grim, unrelenting and essential film, one throwing up things we choose not to think about.

Rating Score -> 3/5
Anubhav Sinha’s film is thought-provoking, hard-hitting and brings light to the burning social issues in the country. Sayani Gupta as Gaura plays the character right. She plays a headstrong women from a lower caste. Another outstanding performance is by Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub. This man, even in an extended special performance, leaves a mark. Isha Talwar, who plays Ayushmann’s love interest doesn’t have much to do in this film, but her onscreen chemistry with Ayushmann is amazing.

9. Mid-Day -

Rating Score -> 4/5
With super crisp editing and screenplay, Ayushmann Khurrana outshines as the cop. With a thick moustache and dressed like an Englishman, the actor justifies his character in every scene. The Bareilly Ki Barfi actor has time and again proved that he can don many hats. From a sperm donor to a cop transferred to Lalgaon in Uttar Pradesh, he's every bit the character he's attempting to portray.

10. Mumbai Mirror -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Caste-based crimes in India have been around since the beginning of time – even though the Constitution prohibits discrimination of any form on such grounds. Article 15 serves as a bitter reminder of the disdainful atrocities that befalls those who are profiled. The film, however, gets a bit tiring in parts when the message seems to be incessantly hammered down. It also takes the lazy route of literally slipping what it hopes to convey, in the dialogue.
