• Vikas Bahl’s Super 30 delivers by excessively leaning on Hindi cinema’s oldest formula — detailing an underdog who strives to rise above his circumstances and even helps those less fortunate achieve ultimate glory.

  • 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.
