The OMG — Oh My God director presents an interesting premise in which the 75 year old Bachchan plays a 102 year old father to the 65 year old Rishi Kapoor, who is 75 years old in the film. As confusing as these numbers are, they are a non-issue to Bachchan's sprihtly character who aspires to be the oldest man alive ever.

His son, Rishi's character, however, feels he is too old for his father's childish wish and wants to get himself admitted to an old age home. Both of them share a unique bond that merry-go-rounds from irritation to concern to joy to betrayal.

As far as dialogue is concerned, Amitabh does the heavy lifting in the trailer, though his overbearing accent may be too difficult to comprehend for many. On the other hand, the otherwise vocal Rishi restrains himself on the dialogue front and lets his diverse, and often hilarious, expressions do the talking.

The best part of the trailer is that the two screen legends are not only in form but also in character.

102 Not Out is produced by Sony Pictures India and is slated to release on 4 May.
