Waqt is that rare Bollywood amalgam of top stars, a bunch of decent songs and wholesome entertainment.

The film explores the close bond between a father Ishwarchand Thakur (Amitabh Bachchan) and his only son Aditya Thakur (Akshay Kumar).

Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, Aditya is pampered by his rich businessman dad Ishwar who denies him nothing despite the constant admonitions of his wife Sumi (Shefali Shah), who is concerned that the boy is turning into a wastrel without any sense of responsibilities.

Even when Aditya gets married to Pooja (Priyanka Chopra) without informing his parents, Ishwar forgives the slight.

But time is running out fast for Ishwar, who dying of lung cancer desperately yearns for just two things before he reaches his maker - to see his son become a more responsible person and to see his grandson.

So Ishwar takes the drastic step of throwing Aditya and a pregnant Pooja out of the house hoping that the shock would instill a sense of responsibility in his son. However, the move while having the desired effect also causes a serious rift between father and son that widens and widens.

Amitabh's bete noire and Pooja's father Natu (Boman Irani) and the family servant Laxman (Rajpal Yadhav) provide fine comic relief.

Shefali Shah shines as Ishwar's wife while Priyanka Chopra doesn't have much of a role other than to look pretty and alluring, which of course she does eminently.

With Waqt, director Vipul Shah has hit the ball well over the boundary line. This film is inspired by the Gujarati play Aavjo Vhala Fari Malishu. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
