Gear up! Your journey with the ‘Baap cool, Beta old-school’ is about to begin, with the release of 102 Not Out’s first song ‘Bachche Ki Jaan’.
This upbeat number, sung by Arjit Singh and composed by Salim-Sulaiman, gives us an exciting look into what to expect from the film and the baap-beta duo.
Director Umesh Shukla stated that Singh’s voice was “fitting with Mr Bachchan’s character in the film, who believes in living life to the fullest”. Watching the video, this is more apparent than ever; Dattatraya (played by Bachchan) has a childlike innocence which is evoked through the song.
We also get to see more of ‘old school beta’ Babulal (played by Kapoor), who is quite the opposite of his fun-loving father. Whilst 102 years young Dattatraya tries to break the world record for the oldest living man, 75-year-old Babulal has already resigned himself to old age and misery.
The film’s soundtrack has sparked the audience’s interest for multiple reasons; it was previously announced that Bachchan has recorded two songs for the film, one being a rap. During his time in the studio, Bachchan posted on his blog “Music music music .. the soul, the essence, the softness of life”. Judging by this peppy number, the soundtrack and film are sure to both make you laugh and warm your heart. So get ready to evoke your inner child for the 4th May, with the release of 102 Not Out!
102 Not Out releases in cinemas from 4th May 2018.
