Article 15, Hindi, English with English subtitles, India, 2019. We are delighted to open our 10th birthday celebrations with the World Premiere of Anubhav Sinha's hard-hitting Article 15. India's hottest male star Ayushmann Khurrana (Andhadhun, Badhai Ho) plays a police officer from a privileged urban, international, background, whose very first posting is to rural north India, where three teenage girls have gone missing. His honesty does not sit well with the existing, deeply entrenched corrupt system where, in 2019, a 1000-year-old practice where human beings are divided on the basis of caste continues. Beginning as a riveting police procedural that is a True Detective-like deep-dive into the Indian bayou, Article 15 soon elevates to a gutsy expose of a deeply flawed structure. The film's title is a reference to an article of the Indian constitution that prohibits discrimination on the basis of caste, religion, race or sex. Introduction and Post screening Q and A with director Anubhav Sinha.
