Julie is an anglo-Indian girl with a loving, but alcoholic father and a domineering mother, a younger brother and sister. She falls in love with her best friend's brother Shashi Bhattacharya, a Hindu boy, and she has a passionate encounter with him, which leaves her pregnant. He goes away to college, not knowing about her condition. Her mother is distraught when Julie tells her about the pregnancy. They don't tell the rest of the family. Her mother thinks about getting Julie an abortion, but a devout Christian talks her out of it. Julie is sent away to have her baby in secret. The rest of the family is told that Julie got a job. When she comes back home, she runs into her Hindu boyfriend and tells him everything. He agrees to marry her, but his mother objects to the mixed marriage, not knowing about the baby born in secret. Julie's mother doesn't want the marriage either, as she and the rest of the family want to go to England

Emily M (de) wrote: I am very surprised to see the medium to low rating here. I loved this movie. It has subtle qualitiies that drew me in and intense undertones and tensions that kept my interest. I really felt a connection with the characters and their dilemas. The humour was silly and natural and appropriate to the entire mood and direction of the film. Many of the scenes were powerful in a quiet understated way and the music was perfect for each scene. So many good things about this film made it come together in a way that by the end I as saying it was one of the best films I have seen. I don't say this often. I am not easy. This film is better than the credit it is getting here. I dare you to give it a chance and I hope you see what I see. You may be surprised.
Manal S (ag) wrote: Usually I'm not into romantic comedies (not to mention futuristic romantic comedies!), but Timer can comfortably be the exception to my rule.The movie poses a silly, yet a deeply philosophical assumption.. what if you can tell exactly who your soul-mate is and when you're going to meet him/her. It's a romantic variation of the never-ending existential argument 'What if you know the future? Would it make you any happier?'The movie was funny, no doubt about it! But what I really liked is the film's foot-on-the-ground development of events and ending. This doesn't mean that the story is entirely realistic, but at least it didn't have the usual fairy-tale, happily-ever-after kind of development. The story starts with a lot of questions and leaves you struggling with even more.Timer is not another chick flick. I guarantee that.

House M (de) wrote: Very smart thriller with a very powerful underlying message about society and media. This is pure action from the first to the last scene, no interruptions. A should see if you are into fresh experiences.

Marcus B (au) wrote: It is impossible not to love this movie - one minute it will make you laugh out loud, only to break your heart in the next and it will make you keep your breath in amazement for all of 88 minutes it lasts. Mother Nature proves once again that it can effortlessly best even the best film directors, if only someone can manage to be bothered with filming the great spectacle of life in the wild. Huge thanks must be given to the Joubert couple for this movie. Oh, and yes, having Jeremy Irons as narrator was a stroke of genius!
