Try:

SELECT CONVERT(varchar,+DATEDIFF(hh,time1,time2))+':'+CONVERT(varchar,DATEDIFF(n,time1,time2)) As TimeDiff
FROM yourtable

time2 - time1 will do it if they are both datetimes.
If not you can convert
convert(datetime,time2) - convert(datetime,time1)
then format the result maybe?
convert(varchar(5),convert(datetime,time2) - convert(datetime,time1),108)
