Storyline

Wagt the race against time is the story of a father and a son between whom there is a special bond. 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 ...

Good film with powerful emotions
10 July 2005 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

Amitabh once again delivers a power-packed performance! He never fails to impress me and just gets better with each film. Akshay, who is also delivering hit after hit, does a terrific job. I liked the combination of Amitabh and Akshay much more in this film than in Ek Rishtaa. The two talented actors created magic on the screen while delivering their dialogues straight from the heart. The story sinks deep into your heart making this film a real tearjerker. On the other hand, the fantastic duo of Boman Irani and Rajpal Yadav create sidesplitting comedy! Shefali Shah also gives a brilliant performance. Despite being so much younger, she did full justice to her role as Amitabh's wife. Priyanka didn't have much of a role, and she doesn't suit the role of the stereotypical Indian housewife. The only thing that bugged me about this movie is how Priyanka was treated. For crying out loud, a pregnant woman shouldn't starve!
