Waqt: The Race Against Time (Hindi: वक़्त, Urdu: وقت, translation: Time) is a Bollywood movie, released in India and the United Kingdom on April 22, 2005.

Based on the play Aavjo Vhala Fari Malishu, Waqt: The Race Against Time is loaded with family drama and comedy. It has its comic element in the form of the bumbling servant Laxman, who misunderstands the most simple requests made of him in a style reminiscent of certain Shakespearian comic relief characters. The drama comes from the conflict between the father Ishwarchand and son Aditya. More comes from knowing critical facts that other characters don't know which would completely change their perspectives.

The movie had an average box office run at home in India, but an outstanding run overseas. It was one of the top grossers of 2005 in Bollywood, laced with great performances by the two main stars and excellent direction. [1]



Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Ishwarchand Thakur (Amitabh Bachchan) and Sumitra Thakur (Shefali Shah) are a married couple who run a toy factory together. They have a son called Aditya Thakur (Akshay Kumar) who does not have any interest in responsibility or what he wants to do in life. It gets even worse when he elopes with his girlfriend (Pooja, played by Priyanka Chopra), the daughter of Natu (Boman Irani).

When Pooja gets pregnant, both Ishwar and Sumitra decide to make Aditya realise his responsibilities, as he will have to take care of his wife and child. Both take drastic measures and even chuck Aditya out the house along with Pooja. The farce becomes so bad that Aditya begins to hate his father and they do not speak to each other for a long time. At the same time Aditya becomes aware of his role in life

However Ishwar has done all this for a reason and is hiding something from Aditya. Ishwar is trying to make sure that his son is secure but for what reason...he is suffering from lung cancer and he wants his son to be responsible. Aditya does success in becoming a responsible man and also finds out the truth about his father when his father comes for his performance on the stage. He does step on the stage but instead he asks the audience to pray to god to give a minute of their lives to keep his father alive until his son's birth. His father is alive until his son is born and he also name the baby boy 'Ishwar' and he dies.

Spoilers end here.
