Waqt is a contribution to the popular lost-and-found genre that has been around since Kismet (1943) and Awaara (1951) often shapes the plot structure of Indian films. The film was a huge success and is exemplary of the kitschy color aesthetic that became popular as an expression of wealth in Hindi film, particularly in the 1970s.[1]
