Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Kumail Nanjiani

IMDb: 5.6/10

Description: For years, Men in Black protected planet Earth from alien invasion. However, for the first time they are supposed to crack a sleeper agent who is leaking information.

What do the critics say:

"A world in which humans and aliens live side by side in an uneasy peace is a cute and welcome conceit, if a bit well-worn after four films, a TV series and several video games," says Michael O' Sullivan from the Washington Post.

Rohit Vats from News18 wrote, There's nothing to cheer for and Chris Hemsworth is the only bait.

During investigation, he uncovers the deep and dark end of Indian social status and its effect on the safety of women.

What do the critics say:

Sreeparna Sengupta from the Times of India writes,Anubhav Sinha’s 'Article 15' is designed like a crime thriller. What works for the film is that it’s thought provoking, hard hitting while unflinchingly bringing to light burning social issues.”


The film is trying to make too many points and somewhere along the way, the various threads scatter, writes Anupama Chopra from Film Companion.
