102 Not Out is an ageless comedy that brings together Indian Cinema’s two biggest stalwarts – Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor – after 27 years with the two legends playing father-son duo for the first time. 102 years young, Dattatraya Vakharia (Bachchan) lives life to the fullest and wants to break the record of oldest living man – that’s held by a 118 years old Chinese. Dattatraya wants to live a stress free life in order to become the oldest living man. However, there is only one hindrance – his 75 year old son Babulal (Kapoor) who has resigned himself to a life of old age stuck in drudgery. Dattatraya now must find means and ways to change Babulal’s sad and grumpy demeanor so that he doesn’t become a deterrent in breaking the record. Little do they realize that this roller coaster ride filled with comedy, emotion and commotion, will change them and their relationship forever.
