Introduction: When two legends meet, the magic gets created. This is what has happened with the latest movie "102 NOT OUT". Two veteran Bollywood stars are back together after 27 long years in this movie. Yes, I am talking about the millennium superstar Amitabh Bachchan and once a romantic hero Rishi Kapoor. The film is just has released and it gets an overwhelming response from all kinds of audiences. The movie is getting talked about not only for their characters in the movie but acting too. Where Amitabh has a role of a father who is 102 years old and Rishi Kapoor has a role of his son who is 75 years old. The story is all about a jolly father who is so energetic and how the father is trying to make his son understand the meaning of a happy life. 102 NOT OUT is based on a hit Gujarati play, which has written by Saumya Joshi in the same name and has been directed by Umesh Shukla as a movie.
The pair of Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor: In one of the interactions with the public, they were asked as to how they felt when they got the movie story. They said when they got this story, immediately they decided to work. In the same gathering, Rishi Kapoor confesses that they both never felt uncomfortable and found anything different when they came together after a long gap. In his words, it looked like as if the two lost wires were reconnected once again.
The pair has done some wonderful and hit movies in the past. The first movie they came together was "Kabhi-Kabhi" in 1976 and the last movie they did was "Ajooba" in 1991. Apart from that "Amar Akbar Anthony" in 1977, "Naseeb" in 1981 and "Coolie" in 1983 are some successful movies in which they have worked together.
Funny moments of the movie 102 NOT OUT: Since the official trailer was out, this movie was a big hit the way it got a response from all over. No doubt this movie is a big entertainment for every age. Some of the scenes are really interesting. In one scene, he is talking to his son about a Chinese person, who lived 118 years, 3 months and 18 days and he wanted to break his record. "Only 16 more years to go! Yoo" was the reaction from the father Amitabh. When the son Rishi Kapoor says – "I am 75 years old man and I have accepted my old age". The father immediately says- "Yes and this is why I am sending you to "old age home". In the next scene Amitabh was calling to old age home people and saying – 'Arey Bhai, I am a father and want to send my son in old age home why don't you try to understand" and the phone gets disconnected from the other side.
Apart from funny scenes, the movie has very touching moments too. The care of a father when his son gets ill and the dialogue of Amitabh saying – "If the kid is not worthy, they should be forgotten and remember only their childhood", says enough about a relationship of a parent in this movie.
Badumbaaa song: This song is already a hit and sung by none other than both Amitabh and Rishi. Amitabh has been already sung many songs for different movies, but it was the first time Rishi Kapoor has done the singing. This song was an entertaining song where they both are trying to pull each other with their funny acting and dance steps. The music of this particular song is so lively and energetic. This is composed by Amitabh Bachchan himself and written by another Amitabh, Amitabh Bhattacharya.
