Story


Aarakshan is a 2011 Indian Bollywood social, drama, political film released on Aug 12, 2011. The film is directed by Prakash Jha, produced by Prakash Jha under banner named Prakash Jha productions.
Succeeding the Mandal Charge report and the SC of India's verdict to preserve a 27 percent registration for Dalits and lesser/backward classes, right-winged party-political establish objections. The Major of Shakuntala Thakral Mahavidyalal, a non-administration university which is exempted from this directive, gets in the attention when it's Principal, Prabhakar Anand, sanctions the choice - much to the anger of the executors as well as the recently selected Vice-Principal Mithilesh Singh, who has advanced Rs.1200 Crores in isolated training classes. Prabhakar rejects to alter his stand and finishes offering his letter of resignation, taking his household, counting his wife, Kavita and child, Poorbi, to stay by Shambhu Yadav's Tabela after they discover their family house being occupied over by Mithilesh's training classes. Efforts to expel Mithilesh's supervise will be in hopeless and will not only end up estranging the family from everybody but Prabhakar will also be bid and feasibly detained for wrecking the grounds of the training class and intimidating it's staff people.
