For its target audience, 102 Not Out is continuing to be in contention at the box office. The film held on well on Tuesday too as 2.83 crore came in. Compared to Monday collections of 3.02 crore, this is a good hold and now it can be safely said that today and tomorrow will bring in at least 5 crore more.
With 22.50 crore in its kitty already, the film is now aiming for a first week billing of at least 28 crore. This also means that a lifetime number in the vicinity of 40 crore is in the sight which would make it a plus affair.
As a matter of fact it is also heartening to see the two veteran actors Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor managing to deliver a success on their own without any support whatsoever from the younger cast members. Big B and Rishi Kapoor had delivered a Superhit each in Pink and Kapoor & Sons respectively but these films had Taapsee Pannu and Sidharth Malhotra/Alia Bhatt/Fawad Khan amongst the younger lot. Here in 102 Not Out, it was just the duo which comes straight from the 70s and 80s.
102 Not Out portrays the relationship between a 102-year-old father, essayed by Big B, and his 75-year-old son, played by Rishi, on the silver screen.
Produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment Films India, Treetop Entertainment and Shukla’s Benchmark Pictures, the film released worldwide on May 4.
The film is about a centenarian who wants to break the world record of being the oldest man alive, which is held by a 118-year-old Chinese man. He plans to do it by putting his son in an old age home.
