You have two options here:
1) you can increase the client buffers
According to the documentation:
returns the client request body if it has not been written to a temporary file. To ensure that the client request body is in memory, its size should be limited by client_max_body_size, and a sufficient buffer size should be set using client_body_buffer_size.
2) you can open the file with the client’s request using request_body_file variable (http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_core_module.html#var_request_body_file)
var fs = require(‘fs’);
var large_body = fs.readFileSync(r.variables.request_body_file)
