Amitabh Bachchan as 102-year-old father and Rishi Kapoor as 75-year-old son have been spreading their love and magic with 102 Not Out. The movie has crossed the 35 crore mark at the box office and it has enjoyed a great second weekend.
It started its 2nd week by collecting 1.85 crores on its 2nd Friday and showed growth collecting 3.05 crores on its 2nd Saturday. The movie has soared further and earned 4.30 crores on its 2nd Sunday. 102 Not Out now stands at the grand total of 36.90 crores.
The growth has been great given the condition movie has been facing at the box office. Avengers: Infinity War is still at the box office and Alia Bhatt’s Raazi is also performing well. Despite these factors, 102 Not Out has been making its way to its target audience.
The film, based on a Gujarati play written by Saumya Joshi, revolves around a 75-year-old son and his 102-year-old father, who wishes to break the world record of being the oldest man alive held by a 118-year-old Chinese man.
“It is great to see how our audience is excited about the combination of these two iconic actors (Amitabh and Rishi) coming together. The fact is that our film is a youthful film narrated by an old father-son duo. And we could not have got it better than this… This is the best cast,” director Umesh Shukla told IANS.
“The story would not have been so interesting if pitched between a 40-year-old father and 10-year-old son. Since these old men already lived their lives, it is interesting to know how they deal with old age. The film talks about how one should be a learner all their life and keep the curiosity alive to get rid of boredom and find a new purpose of living life to the fullest,” he added.
