Adapted from the Gujarati play 'Aavjo Vhala Fari Malishu', Waqt - The Race Against Time is targeted at the family audiences. It is the story of a man, who has little time on hand and his son, who refuses to shoulder responsibilities. The father is Ishwar [Amitabh Bachchan] and the son Aditya [Akshay Kumar]. Ishwar, the owner of a toy manufacturing company, is extremely generous and large-hearted. On the surface, Ishwar's life seems perfect: A profitable business, a loving son and a caring and dutiful wife, Sumi [Shefali Shah]. Aditya is in love with Pooja [Priyanka Chopra], the daughter of Nattubhai [Boman Irani], and the two get married without bothering to take consent or even informing their parents. Ishwar hopes that the marriage will make Aditya a more responsible man, but he is disappointed. His efforts to turn Aditya into a responsible individual turn futile. One thing leads to another and Ishwar doesn't have an option but to throw Aditya out of the house. Aditya is shocked to see his otherwise doting father behaving like a tyrant. After the initial hiccups, Aditya takes it upon himself to take care of his pregnant wife. Aditya starts working as a stuntman and at the same time, prepares for a star-search contest. Aditya starts turning into an independent man, but the rift between the father and son widens. In the climax, Aditya is chosen to participate in the finals of the star-search contest and this is where the father's genuine intentions come to light. The first half has well executed light moments while the second half is more dramatic, more engaging and has a series of deftly executed sequences that look straight out of life. The director succeeds at making people emotional and reach for their kerchief. It is an Amitabh Bachchan film. The script has been written with him in mind. Akshay Kumar is competent and delivers his lines well, but is thoroughly overshadowed by Amitabh. Priyanka is ok, but does not sizzle. Shefali Shah is very good as well. Boman Irani as Priyanka?s father is adequate. Rajpal Yadav is funny. Music is ok. Cinematography [Santosh Thundiyil] is first-rate. Overall Waqt is totally a family drama that will make you cry and laugh at the same time.
