 Films like ‘102 Not Out’ are best enjoyed with the family. The ease with which the film portrays the bittersweet relationship between its characters is fantastic. Such films are like soft serve ice cream on a sparkly Sunday afternoon. They make you happy. There are parts in the film where emotions run high, but it’s never too overbearing. It’s just a happy and healthy entertainer that tells you that living in the moment and making the most of everyday of your life is all that matters. And age of course, as they say, is just a number.

No doubt it’s great to see a film about two old people with unseemly paunches, bad hair, heavily wrinkled faces, dressed in slept-in clothes and not doing much, as all old people, if lucky, should get to do. But we have seen both Bachchan and Kapoor in that avatar in better films (Piku especially, and in Kapoor & Sons) before this. Here, they are used first to underline the point about living life to the fullest, and then to double-underline how mean sons who migrate to the Big, Bad West can be. But there are no middle grounds, no grey areas, no medical scares, no money issues, and even very little tension as the 102-year-old Dattatraya (Bachchan) threatens to send his 75-year-old, pessimistic son Babulal to an old-age home. The alternative is for Babulal to fulfill a series of tasks that Dattatraya sets out for him to do, all of which involve him shedding things he has gone used to or fond of or dependent on over the years.

It’s nice to see an old Bachchan picture on the wall, circa Abhimaan, just as it is fine to see a photograph of a Khel Khel Mein Kapoor teaching his son math. Yet despite Bachchan and Kapoor – and young Jimit Trivedi, who plays the enthusiastic domestic help with infectious enthusiasm – the film relies too heavily on prosthetics, with liver spots being used either for laughs, or instead of character details. All we ever know about Dattatraya is his decrepitude. For a film about living a full life, that feels rather toothless.

 102 Not Out’s heart is firmly in the right place. The film knows its territory and the emotions it wants to evoke. It’s just that a few important characters don’t get enough play and they are sacrificed to make space to Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor.But are the two veterans worth it? Definitely. They form the soul of 102 Not Out and its youthful exuberance. Rishi Kapoor has an upper hand though.The film’s 101-minute duration is enough to convey its high spirits and liveliness. Its message is loud and clear though it comes at the cost of some unnecessary villainy. What a joy to watch two fantastic actors working in tandem in a performance-oriented film!

 What’s Good: Not a single dull moment throughout, proper mixage of humour and drama, full of life performances by Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor & Jimit Trivedi.What’s Bad: Even if I live for 102 years and watch this movie 102 times, I’ll not be able to pull out anything bad from it.Loo Break: Not a loo break, but many a times you’ll feel to take a break from heart-melting emotions going on-screen.Watch or Not?: The moment I met my dad after watching this movie, I asked him to reschedule whatever he’s having on Friday because we’re watching this together!
