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 realize 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 ...

Beautiful!!!!
19 April 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I Laughed. I cried.

This movie made me express all the emotions I could possibly express during the film.

What I loved the most about this movie was the Father-Son relationship that had been portrayed. I felt as if I was watching someone acting out the relationship that I shared with my father.

After having seen the movie, I would say that I was educated as to how I could be more nice towards my parents in all possible ways. My dad does love me, and Akki's behavoiur in the film made me realize how I might have hurt him in some way or the other.

Waqt was a great family entertainer....

Less to speak of & more to admire!!!!
