Age Ratings : All Ages Dr. Prabhakar Anand (Amitabh Bachchan) is an upstanding college principal of STM. One of his protégés belonging to the lower caste, Deepak (Saif Ali Khan), gets rejected for a job because of his background. Dr. Anand's daughter, Poorbi (Deepika Padukone), and his good friend, Sushant (Pratiek Babbar), comfort him. Dr. Anand hires him as a teacher at STM. All is well until the Supreme Court gives a verdict which ensures reservation for backward class students. The court's decision is welcomed by Deepak, but not Sushant, who belongs to the general category and is rejected for a government job despite merit. This leads to a fallout between Sushant and Deepak. Dr. Anand intervenes but ends up only aggravating the situation further. Where will this caste divide take the two friends?
