Watch 102 Not Out Trailer : The duo is back after 27 years as quirky father and son
There are old people, then there are old people. In the recently released trailer of 102 Not Out, Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor explore the two vastly different sides of being in the last leg of your life. Helmed by Umesh Shukla, this unusual father-son story seems to be a quirky, side-splitting comedy.
It begins with a 102-year-old father, played by Amitabh Bachchan, who is full of life and wants to be the oldest person alive on earth. Rishi Kapoor plays his 75-year-old son who is living a dull life without much to look forward to. Most of the household decisions are taken by the father who has a boisterous and overpowering personality. The son is suffering from an inner guilt, at least it seems so. The twist in the tale comes when the father suddenly announces that he is going to send his son to an old-age home and he is doing so happily.
The trailer is full of light moments that would bring a smile to your face. In fact, there is a love angle involving Rishi Kapoor too. It seems his wife is still alive but they are living separately. Amitabh’s father wants to fill that breach but will he succeed? The trailer is full of slice-of-life moments and the fact that a child will be a child to parents, even if the age is 75.
102 Not Out is an adaptation of a Gujarati play by Saumya Joshi that goes by the same name. While Shukla who previously helmed the Akshay Kumar starrer Oh My God! directs this laugh riot, Joshi has been credited as the writer.
The film is planned for worldwide release on 4 May 2018.
