Audience Reviews for Waqt: The Race Against Time

Ishwarchand Thakur has always indulged his only son, Aditya, in almost everything he's ever asked for even if that meant disappointing his wife, Sumitra. Sumitra believes that allowing Adi to do whatever he wants, and whenever he wants, would only further enable acts of irresponsibility and immaturity. Adi believes that his father and mother will continue to provide for him in any means necessary. With his young bride in tow, Adi does not wish to carry on with the family business. A sudden illness overcomes Ishwar, and he begins to realize that his son will not change. With a small amount of time left, Ishwar and Sumi decide to initiate the changes within their son so he can assume some adult responsibilities. As he becomes more accountable for his actions, he slowly begins to realize why his parents did what they had to. Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Rajpal Yadav, and Shefali Shah stars. Worthy!

A father-son movie about pushing an adult son to grow up. I might have had a hard time watching this is the theater, as a few of the songs seemed like lengthy and pointless intrusions even by Bollywood standards. But the main thrust of the plot (and the comedy routines, which were nominated for prizes) were wonderful. The comedy/drama blend (in chunks like stew) will seem a little odd for those whose tastes are formed by Hollywood, and the first part drags a bit. But I greatly enjoyed this family drama.

Akshay overacts the entire movie. I've seen Amitabh in far better movies. Priyanka is as beautiful as always.
