A decision by India's supreme court tests a man's friendships and loyalty. Aarakshan is the story of Prabhakar Anand (Amitabh Bachchan), the legendary idealistic principal of a college that he has single-handedly turned into the state's best. It is the story of his loyal disciple, Deepak Kumar (Saif Ali Khan) who will do anything for his Sir. Of Deepak's love for Prabhakar's daughter, Poorbi (Deepika Padukone), of his friendship with Sushant (Prateik). It is the story of their love, their lively friendship, their zest for life, and of their dreams for the future. Centered on one of the most controversial issues of recent years, with the Supreme Court's order on reservations, the story suddenly becomes a rollercoaster ride of high drama, conflict, and rebellion, which tests their love and friendship for one another, and their loyalty to Prabhakar Anand.

So what if he needs to edit a little, for such a young director he keeps pushing the envelope and engages us in important social topics that need discussing. This is one of them.

Now he was better than 50 Cent in this film but that is defintley not saying much. The only person who did any kind of decent acting was Sharon Stone and she didn't even do all that good. As far as the story goes it was horrible and it made me not eant to watch the movie. And where was the direction? I didn't see any at all. And the scenes where there was violence made me hate this film even more blood effets were horrible and the sound was terrible and horribly put together. So with nothin postive at all to say about this movie. 10%

Grant S (br) wrote: Dull and irritating.Really just a platform for John Wayne (as GW McLintock) to strutaround, showing that he's the boss. The plot and dialogue could nothave been tailored more to Wayne's ego than if he had written ithimself.Everything else seems secondary, and hammy. There is a sub-plot aboutthe rights and heritage of Native Americans, but it is superficial andpatronizing. There is also an initial attempt at, at last, having a strong femalecharacter, the equal of John Wayne. This theme, with Maureen O'Hara asMclinkock's wife, seemed like it had potential but the wholeinteraction between McLintock and his wife seemed contrived, hammy andimplausible. Ultimately, any thoughts that we might see a movie where awoman has equal standing to a John Wayne character is destroyed in thefinal few scenes.So nothing going for this movie. Even the beautiful and vivaciousMaureen O'Hara can't save it.

Anthony I (nl) wrote: Saw this movie recently in a film class. The production value is very impressive for the time it was made. But simply it doesn't hold up. it gets a little confusing and the acting was kind of poor to begin with. Regardless, it's almost so bad it's good, in it's own 80's kind of way.
