This is on Amazon Prime - with a run time of 2 hours 12 mins. Not sure why the films on there are completely butchered.

Hmmm!

Most DVDs are 178-179 min
Moserbaer, mentioned in this thread is 186 min.

Sony MIX channel broadcasts the songs of this film from a remastered source, time and again. Despite this, there's no essence of a restored version of this film.
Shemaroo did Waqt in the past, and the DVD was pseudo-progressive. The other versions, as far as I remember were most likely field averaged (and 4% sped up).
I have never seen this film and have chosen not to until a good-looking scan of the film surfaces online on either Netflix or Amazon Prime.

1-3 years ago, when lots of bollywood blu rays were being released, WAQT was among the upcoming blu rays at the website:
http://bollywoodbluraydvd.com/#

But, just then, they mostly stopped releasing bollywood blu rays. Later on, no new or upcoming bollywood blu rays showing up on that site. Looks like, blu ray business is dead. But, HD (1080P, 4K) films or film songs keep coming out on the internet. Most likely, Waqt HD video is in the cans somewhere. There are many bollywood films on youtube that are lot better than their DVD releases.

(Was pleasantly surprised to find 3 of my fav Rajkumar songs in 4K, while it's DVDs were all crap pq. Many song videos are in 4K on youtube).

To be fair, if you are going to wait for this to surface on Netflix, I think you'll be waiting for a very long time - the only older Hindi films I recall seeing on Netflix are those produced by Eagle Films. Waqt is on Amazon Prime, but is significantly cut.

And Rana ji, with regards to bollywoodbluraydvd - that was Jolly's site - they used to announce anything and everything as releasing on bluray, most of the news from that site was fake!

I relied on that site a lot and obtained almost all Bollywood BRs mentioned as released. Only, in the end, the forthcoming releases never surfaced as the companies put brakes on Blu Rays. I think, the reason was low sales that were partly due to piracy. And now, so much is available on youtube in HD, Blu Ray market is essentially dead.
But, I still prefer Blu Rays and don't find Youtube versions stated as 1080P as good - youtube ones are neither that good nor that complete. For Bollywood content, I suspect, the so called 720P content is mostly sourced from 480i, 1080P from 480P DVDs AND the 4K content is sourced from 1080P Blu Rays. (1080P Blu Ray 40-50 GB and 4K youtube 0.5 GB ??)

I'm still interested in keep acquiring Bollywood Blu Rays but hardly I find the release info in time. By the time, occasionally when I find a Blu Ray released, it's already sold out.
