Lyricist Prasoon Joshi has written the lyrics for the songs and also composed the music of the title track of the film, Kaun si Dor which has been sung by Pandit Chunnulal Misra. Aarakshan is the story of Dr. Prabhakar Anand, a utopian college principal and a non-believer of casteism. But turn of events lead to him being labeled as a casteist by all including his favourite student Deepak Kumar played by Saif Ali Khan. Deepak is also in love with Dr. Anand’s daughter, Poorbie, essayed by Deepika Padukone. Misunderstandings come in between the young lovers when Poorbie finds out that Deepak, who is a dalit is also pointing fingers at her father. About his character, Amitabh Bachchan said, his character does not believe in casteism but also feels that reservations are meant to be opportunities to weaker sections to move forward. The film also broaches the subject of how opportunities for education are becoming increasingly commercialized.

Saif Ali Khan who plays a major role in the film says that the movie Aarakshan has changed his perspective towards reservation policies. He says he was strongly against reservation but after playing a Dalit in the movie and knowing the deeper realities of the poor people from that cast, he now believes reservations should exist.
