102 Not Out is basic and simplistic, with few layers. The jokes are abundant but it never feels as larger than life as its protagonist, who lives king size.

If you’ve watched the play 102 Not Out, there’s no reason why you’d want to attempt the film. Besides the fact that this could count for a reunion of The living half Manmohan Desai’s macho leading men. Director Umesh Shukla borrows his treatment from the original play and it thematically follows the same philosophy- age doesn’t matter. Casting Amitabh Bachchan (75) and Rishi Kapoor (65), the former plays the latter’s father. Of course, you have to go with the assumption that it is not much of a cinematic liberty that a man 102 years old is in complete control of his motor skills, and can even do a jig from time to time. As the trailer tells us, Dattatreya (Bachchan) wants to send his morose and glum son Babulal (Kapoor) to an old age home because his energy is just so dull and a strange contrast to the happy, shiny and fairly optimistic vibe of his father. Babulal resists and his father relents only on a few conditions – which includes writing a letter to his long gone, dead wife, severing ties with his doctor. 
 
Shukla peppers the tale with happy, shiny, bubblegum, balloon-y cheer, and some pretty mediocre level of humour. So yes, you spirt out those mandatory laughs. Of course, the emotions in the film feel really heartfelt even though it could’ve tipped over to flaky. But when you have actors of the level of Bachchan and Kapoor, your bar of acting is immediately upped. It’s problematic that there’s a major dependence on the actors to up the story, so the legends of the silver screen indulge in the melodrama with such effortlessness that you buy into it. But by design, the film is corny and cheesy especially in its climax, the one you know right when the story picks up pace
 
However, this is one to sit through. For Bachchan, who is a lot less affable than his role in Piku but he is still Bachchan, making everything he is in look better. “I am strictly against dying,” he says as he hopes to break the world century of being the oldest man alive. Your heart will go to Kapoor, who is under the shadow of his father, who never lets him just be sad even in peace. Kapoor nails his part with such finesse, only to make you realise what a joy it is to see seniors perform. They are smooth and fantastic, slipping into characters so easily.

Shukla’s Film is basic and simplistic, with few layers. The jokes are abundant but it never feels as larger than life as its protagonist, who lives king size.

We are going with a 55% on the Pinkvilla Movie Meter.
