In his review for GalacticGaming, the film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film 4 stars (out of 5) and writes: “A convincing and corrosive police procedure which exposes the harsh reality of caste and gender oppression in the sticks of Uttar Pradesh, from Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15 hits us in the face with the force and precision of a heavy pugilist’s fist. The blow makes us tremble because nothing that the grainy and unwavering film tells us is a revelation. Haven’t we always known what kind of people we are and what kind of denial we live in? Article 15 only serves as a grim and urgent reminder – and a call to action. “
The film has won numerous awards and distinctions, including the Filmfare Award for Best Actor (Critic) for Ayushmann Khurrana.
