Waiting Movie Story/Plot
A good story provides strong foundation to film and from the amount of success the movie has got in UAE; we can say this movie has undoubtedly one of the best and unique romantic drama scripts. But this is not a love story rather a different form of romance between a man and a woman with almost a generation gap. Naseeruddin Shah plays the role of Professor Shiv Natraj, a lively old lad who is hopeful that his wife who has been in coma for 8 months will wake up. Then there is Kalki Koechlin who plays the character of Tara Kapoor, a young, smart and sexy girl who is also upset about her husband’ scritical condition due to an accident.
Professor Natraj, however, manages to stay optimistic and joyful in otherwise grim environment of the hospital. He engages Tara along with the staff with his little irritating puns and jests. Then he invites Tara over to his house where they dance on music leaving his neighbors puzzled who are thinking what has happened to our lazy geezer. Both Natraj and Tara though quite different from each other, enjoy each others company and face various difficulties together. Other members in the cast include Arjun Mathur as Rajat Deshpande, Rajat Kapoor, Suhasini Maniratnam and Rajeev Ravindranathan as Girish. Waiting movie was screened in the 12th edition of Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) on December 11, 2015.
