102 Not Out is an upcoming Hindi-language Indian comedy-drama film directed by Umesh Shukla[3] and starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in the lead roles. The film is based on the running eponymous Gujarati play written by Saumya Joshi.

The film is slated for worldwide release on 4 May 2018 and the trailer is attached to the release of Pad Man[4] and Aiyaary.

Buzz generated when it was announced that Bachchan and Kapoor were coming together as then Kapoor had just publicly accused Bachchan of not giving credit to co-stars for his success but only directors and writers. Kapoor also revealed that in their early years relations were not well between them. Rishi Kapoor stated that the reason for their soured relations was that Kapoor bribed an official for his Filmfare Best Actor Award for Bobby and Bachchan may have found out about this secret, realizing he lost due to this unfairness not because the Filmfare judges felt he gave a lesser performance in Zanjeer.[5]

However, when speaking about the film, both legends have said they enjoyed working with each other again after many years and praised each other’s work, putting a rest to the rumors that there was still tension between them.[4]

The film will be seeing Bachchan and Kapoor reunite on-screen after 27 years. They have been paired in many beloved classic films together such as Kabhie Kabhie (1976), Amar Akbar Anthony (1977), Naseeb (1981), Coolie (1983) and Ajooba (1991).[6]

Plot[edit]

The film's plot is based on a Gujarati Play by the same name. Amitabh Bachchan will play a 102-year-old man and Rishi Kapoor will play his 75-year-old son.[3] The film story revolves around the 102-year-old man trying to break the oldest person record in the world, which in the film is held by a Chinese Man.
