About Time is a British romantic dramedy film revolving around time travel where a young man tries to change his past to have a better future. Written and directed by Richard Curtis,and starring Domhnall GleesonRachel McAdams and Bill Nighy.

About time is a beautiful film about life.Before giving you an idea about the film, I want to tell you that A film or art is not a perfect thing,well when I go to watch a film, I don't expect it to be perfect,but I want it to be original,original is enough to make any film interesting,an original, a new idea, that can give you new insight about the world and life.

About time is a beautiful film about time travelling,even though,my most favourite film about time travel is The time machine,directed by  Simon Wells,( who is indeed the grandson of  H. G. Wells  ).I loved the Back to the future series,but the appearance of the scientist made his look like he was crazy or something.Its a wrong idea about scientists. Sci-films that portrays the scientists as crazy,they may have not respect for science.It shows, they are only using the name of science in their films to just earn money !!

About time tells the story of a young man named Tim, who can travel in time  but only backwards to the places he can memorise. It was a secret in his family,only the mans knew. 
When he turned into 21,he is told the secret by his father,who was then a retired professor and who have read most of the looks using hat time travelling gift.

But this young man wishes to find girlfriend who did not have girlfriend yet.He lived with his family living a beautiful,even though his family was a bit different in a good wise. His mother was Mary, who was strong, her fashion icon was queen.His father who had always time to read books and spend time with him playing table tennis.His father looked amazing to me. Spending time books,music and family one of the best way to spend time.

There was another member in the family,it was uncle Desmond,who was a simple,loving person, who had his mind on other things.Then there was his sister Katherine,who was loving,cute and was nature thing.

But for Tim Lake, it was always about love.Then Tim moves to London after his unsuccessful love with Charlotte for doing job as lawyer.There in a blind date,he meets Mary,a beautiful girl,with firing in her hair,who worked as a reader. Tim fell in love with Mary.They soon gets married,they have kids,first one is a girl called Posy.Then Tim's father dies of cancer, who had spend an amazing life spending time with family,books and music.There was something peaceful about him.

Tim's father had shared his formula's for happiness.Those were -
1. Live everyday like ordinary people.
2. Live each day twice,first by living it just through the trouble of life and in the second time live the day by noticing the beauty of the life. 

Later Tim achieves a insight on his own about the time of life.He does not travel time anymore,because he lives each day day by thinking that he has deliberately come to that day to enjoy it fully.
He says," We are all travelling through time together,all we can do is do our best, to relish this remarkable ride"


The soundtrack of the film is just  amazing,,they just perfectly fit with the scenes and storyline. My  favorite  soundtracks of the About time are -

  1. Ben Folds – "The Luckiest" (About Time Version)
  2. Jon Boden, Sam Sweeney & Ben Coleman – "How Long Will I Love You?"
  3. Paul Buchanan – "Mid Air"
  4. Groove Armada – "At the River"
