102 Not Out song Kulfi is an ode to Amitabh Bachchan-Rishi Kapoor relationship
A new song titled Kulfi from the film 102 Not Out has been released and works as therapy for ears. Voiced by Sonu Nigam, the song is a celebration of father-son relationship. In the film, Amitabh Bachchan plays a 102-year-old father of 75-year-old Rishi Kapoor.
102 Not Out marks the return of Amitabh and Rishi in a film after 27 years. Though they have also worked in films like Delhi 6 and Om Shanti Om, but they were seen together in full-fledged roles last time in Ajooba (1991).
Kulfi, composed by Salim-Sulaiman, talks about the happiness of childhood. The word ‘kulfi’ is used as a metaphor for the nostalgia attached to childhood games.
The film is about a man who has already 100-year-old, but wants to make record as the longest living person.
Directed by Umesh Shukla of Oh My God fame, the film’s unique trailers have generated a good buzz around the film, and thus it is likely to sustain its ground in front of films like Omerta and High Jack that are releasing alongside it on May 4, 2018.
Shukla talked about the film at an event. He said, “They (Big B and Rishi) loved it. They were in sync with it. We didn’t want to show two old man sitting on a bench in a garden -- which is the image which comes into the mind of many. Our marketing team worked on the idea and then we showed the presentation to the actors. They loved it and said it is very fresh, new and unique.”
