The Tamil remake of Article 15 marks the second directorial of lyricist-singer-actor Arunraja Kamaraj. He made his directorial debut in 2018 with sports drama Kanaa. The movie is Bollywood filmmaker Boney Kapoor’s second Tamil production after the hugely successful Nerkonda Paarvai, starring Ajith in the lead role.
Anubhav Sinha directorial Article 15, which dealt with the issue of casteism, starred Ayushmann Khurrana, Nassar, Manoj Pahwa, Kumud Mishra, Isha Talwar, Sayani Gupta, Sushil Pandey, Veen Harsh and Sumbul Touqeer. In her review, Shubhra Gupta wrote, “Article 15 may have an unsatisfactory element or two, but as a film, it rushes in to reclaim the grounds we have ceded. It is what is needed– a clarion call, a bugle, a calling-out– all rolled in one.”
