Anurag Kashyap is all praise for Anubhav Sinha’s directorial Article 15 that released on 28th June. Starring Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead, the film has an ensemble cast of Kumud Mishra, Sayani Gupta, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and Manoj Pahwa who are all being appreciated for their performances.
The film is also doing quite well at the box office. In the opening weekend, it collected over Rs. 20 crores and continues to engage audiences in cinemas across the country.
Article 15 has also been reviewed favorably by critics all across the country.
Recently, filmmaker and producer Anurag Kashyap took to social media to praise the director for the film.
He wrote on his official Twitter handle, “Envy Anubhav Sinha to have pulled off ‘Article 15′ that he has,”Great performances and storytelling topped by such incredible cinematography, music, sound. A perfect slow burn of a thriller much like ‘Mississippi Burning’. Congratulations to all involved.”
Further adding that despite the great film that it is, the song in the endtitle should not have appeared. He wrote, “Ayushmann, Sayani, Gaurav Solanki, Manoj Pahwa, Zeshan Ayyub, Vineet, Kumud Mishra and everybody whose name I don’t remember. Bas end title mein gaana nahin chahiye tha. (Just didn’t want song in the end).”
To which Anubhav Sinha responded that he knew the song would not go down well with some people and yet added it as part of conscious choice at the same time apologizing that he would not repeat it again.
” I always knew some of us will not like the song in the end… They would want to leave sombre… but I wanted them to break in to ‘action mode’. That was an informed choice I made.. Sorry.. Agli mein nahin dalunga.
