Bringing unconventional cinema to your screen is the upcoming Bollywood rendition of 102 Not Out. Starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor, 102 Not Out is an adaptation of a play of the same name by Saumya Joshi.
The story revolves around a 102-year-old man, played by Amitabh Bachchan, who lives with his 75-year-old son, played by Rishi Kapoor. The character portrayed by Bachchan will be seen trying to break the record of the oldest man alive, which is apparently held by a Chinese man in the film.
The two great actors are reuniting after a long break of almost three decades. After having played brothers in Amar Akbar Anthony, 102 Not Out brings together in them an unusual father-son duo – quite an experiment to begin with. We have seen both actors play old characters with elan. While Bachchan entertained with his crazy old man portrayal in Piku, Kapoor made a cool grandfather in Kapoor & Sons.
Rishi Kapoor took to Twitter to express his elation over the project – “Wonderful to work again with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan. Thank you Amitji, it never felt the 26 years old hiatus. We connected instantly.”
The film will be directed by Umesh Shukla, who has earlier proved his mettle with OMG – Oh My God!. The filming has commenced in Mumbai.
As unconventional as it can get, this father-son jodi is sure to offer a breath of fresh air to the audience, and hopefully would make Bollywood look even more promising.
