It’s all about content-based films this May. Fans were eagerly waiting for Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor starrer 102 Not Out, and the flick managed to surpass all expectations with its simple but relatable storyline.
The Umesh Shukla directorial, which hit the silver screens on May 4, opened on a positive note and minted Rs 3.52 crore on Friday. The comedy-drama film witnessed a solid growth of 57 per cent on the second day and raked in Rs 5.53 crore, to take the total collection to Rs 9.05 crore.
Bollywood critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office collection of the ‘Ageless comedy’ on social media. He said that strong mouth of the word publicity has helped generate good business.

The film based on the bond between a father and a son has been successful in winning the hearts of both critics and movie buffs. Fans seem very excited to see the dynamic duo of Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor on the silver screen after 27 long years.
While Big B plays the role of a quirky 102-year-old father, Chintu Kapoor plays his boring 75-year-old son in the slice-of-life drama.

102 Not Out with its perfect dose of love, emotions and laughter has pulled the audiences to the theatres. The flick, based on the Gujarati play of the same name by Saumya Joshi, has held its ground despite competition from Avengers: Infinity War.
It won’t be wrong to say that 102 Not Out is one of the most promising and well-made films of the year. A big shout out to the entire team for giving us a film like this.
