102 Not Out is an ageless comedy starring the two Bollywood icons — Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan as father and son. Dattatraya Vakhariya is a 102-year-old man who lives with his 75-year-old son, Babulal. Dattatraya lives like a free bird youngster and has a secret mission to change his son’s attitude towards life.

Critics: “102 Not Out is a sweet watch and it is Amitabh Bachchan-Rishi Kapoors partnership that warms your heart. But the film remains fairly one dimensional and turns preachy towards the end,” said Kriti Tulsiani, News 18.
