Aarakshan (Reservations) sets out to illustrate the problems in the education system courtesy of the caste system and corruption within India. But it never really manages to fully explicate the issues at hand. Instead, it becomes a film about retribution and new beginnings in the end. If you need any reason to watch Prakash Jha’s film, then watch it for the powerful dialogues and phenomenal performance by Amitabh Bachchan. He is outstanding. The rest of cast does an apt job with Prateik looking completely lost. It manages to make a impact with its solid plot but it misses the target.
