As the song BADUMBAAA from 102 NOT OUT is making waves about the bonding between the icon for the icons Amitabh Bachchan and Bollywood ‘s first teen pin up sensation Rishi Kapoor, a nostalgia from the 80’s haunts us and make us more in awe for the bonding between the awesome twosome Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan dating 37 years back..
While the upcoming 102 helmed by OH MY GOD fame Umesh Shukla starring the megastar Amitabh Bachchan and the retro love icon Rishi Kapoor is about an unusual father-and-son love story, based on playwright Saumya Joshi’s well-known Gujarati play by the same name, this clip from Manmohan Desai’s 1981 blockbuster NASEEB that starred Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Shatrughan Sinha talks about an emotionally charged adage on the bonding between two brothers.
This factory Manmohan Desai product celebrated the lost and found theme and bhaichara (brotherhood) with the known crowd pleasing flavor. Interestingly, in reality Mr. Bachchan who is known for essaying his drunken acts in one take and regarded as the best in this department ( the iconic scenes from AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY, SATTE PE SATTA, MUQADDAR KA SIKANDAR etc are proven testimonies), will never do this and Rishi Kapoor who is known for his fondness for drinks won,t be playing a sober teetotaler!. But that’s the power of cinema and great performers who convincingly infuse real emotions in fictional settings and come triumph.
Similarly, in reality Mr. Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor won,t let the situation depicted in 102 NOT OUT happen in their real life where a 102 year old father played by Mr. Bachchan is a sprightly character bursting with optimism, while his on-screen 75 year old son - Rishi Kapoor is a character whining about old age as both Mr. Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor are self confessed ‘conservative’ fathers.
But if we go by the trailer and the song BADUMBA, we are sure the duo will win hearts one again by playing father and son in this most unusual story between a father and a son. And why not, they have enthralling us with their awesome acts since decades..
