All hell goes wrong for Prabhakar Anand(Amitabh Bachchan), the principal of an acclaimed yet private college when Supreme Court orders for 27% quota for OBCs in government educational institutions.
The movie deals with aftermaths of the reservation on another side, the teachers. But it also tries to deal with privatisation of the education sector. It explains that though every person in a democracy has equal rights but oppurtunities aren't equal.
The weak point is the high handed Drama that plays hand in every part of its plot. The songs aren't worth listening at all despite being less in number. But practically chances of such a thing happening are dim. Yet Prakash Jha tries to explain the quantum of divide in the nation pre and post reservation.
More socialistic and realistic films awaited Mr. Jha. Keep it up!
- Big B - no one could pull off such a role with such charm and perfection!!
- Perfect casting ... from the leads to supporting cast, they all hold the fort in their role!!
- The first 30minutes were not needed at all. They are just boring, pointless and annoying !!
- The Saif-Deepika romance, another story angle that was not needed in the story at all ...
Overall - not a cinema watch ... but good one to watch at home on DVD with a remote =D
