      Default █ ►102 NOT OUT◄ █ - My Review

      Date : 11.05.2018
      Theatre : CineRoyal, screen 5
      Location : Dalma Mall, Abu Dhabi
      Time : 5.20pm
      Status : 20 people

      '102 Not out' says the story about a 102 year old man Dattatraya (Amitabh Bachchan) and his son 75 year old Babulal (Rishi Kapoor) who lives together in their ancestral property. While Dattatraya is a cheerful happy-go-luck chap enjoying his life Babulal has a very reserved and boring personality who thinks of himself as very old and is living the life just for the sake of it. Babulal's son Amol had gone to US 30 years ago and has never returned after marrying there. Babulal's only connection with his son is the occasional phone calls he receives from Amol during his birthday or other special occasions.

      The films talks about Dattatraya's ambition to break the world record for most years lived in earth which is currently held by a Chinese man who lived till 118 years. So Dattatraya is hellbent on living those extra 16 years to break the record. But he understands from the Chinese man's life secrets that if you are living together with boring and uninspiring people you will not be able to live long. This puts Dattatraya's plans into jeopardy as Babulal is exactly what that will not allow him to break the record. Dattatraya finally finds a solution which is to send Babulal into old age home. Babulal initially thinks of it as a joke but when he realizes that his father is serious he becomes very angry and agitated. Dattatraya tells him he has two choices, one is to go to old age home or else Babulal has pass certain conditions put forward by Dattatraya. Babulal reluctantly agrees to fulfill the conditions put forward by Dattatraya.

      The question is....is Dattatraya making Babulal do all these weird stuffs just to make him better so that Dattatraya can achieve his goal of breaking the record or does he have any other mission that is far far more greater....? This forms the rest of the movie.

      The film moves at a brisk pace with lot of comic elements in the 1st half. But the 2nd half deals with a lot of emotional turmoil that happened in the life of Babulal which explains why he has become the way he is. There are a few scenes in the 2nd half that really touches your heart. The pre-climax scene involving Rishi Kapoor is a fitting finale to this movie that gives a very strong message about the relationship between parents and children.

      Director Umesh Shukla has done a stellar job in re-creating the play written by Saumya Joshi and he has extracted towering performances from Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor. There is not even a single female character in the movie (apart from a servant character shown in a couple of scenes). Another notable performance is by Jimit Trivedi who tags along with Dattatraya like a sidekick of sorts.

      A very relevant theme in this day and age told in a brilliant way.

      My rating :- 4/5
