New Delhi: When you have power actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor together in one frame, you possibly can't go wrong. Filmmaker Umesh Shukla had the opportunity to direct these two stalwarts of Hindi cinema and that explains why '102 Not Out' turned out to be a winner at the Box Office.
The film has received a positive response from the audiences and the critics alike. Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the latest figures.

The movie is based on the Gujarati play written by Saumya Joshi by the same name. The filmmaker has tapped their chemistry and the love-hate relationship existing between a 75-year-old son and a father, who is 102 and so full of life.
Bachchan senior and Rishi Kapoor have delivered some of the most memorable ventures together such as Kabhie Kabhie (1976), Amar Akbar Anthony (1977), Naseeb (1981), Coolie (1983) and Ajooba (1991).
Besides Bachchan and Kapoor senior, '102 Not Out' stars Jimit Trivedi. Director Umesh Shukla has previously directed classic drama 'Oh My God' featuring Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar in lead roles. The film was widely appreciated by the audiences.
The film faced tough competition from Alia Bhatt starrer 'Raazi' but yet maintained its grip at the Box Office. Both the films have done decent business and continue to hold ground at the ticket counters.
