Cricket star Sachin Tendulkar has praised cine icons Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor for their movie "102 Not Out". "102 Not Out" is based on playwright Saumya Joshi's well-known Gujarati play by the same name.

In Umesh Shukla's "102 Not Out", Big B is seen as a centenarian father to his 75-year-old son -- essayed by Rishi -- who wants to break the world record of being the oldest man alive. The record is held by a 118-year-old Chinese man.

"Many congratulations to Saumya and Umesh for this wonderful movie and to great actors Amitji and Rishiji along with Jimit Trivedi. I thought it was a fantastic movie," Tendulkar said in a statement to IANS.

"I have grown up watching Amitji and Rishiji. Their acting skill is on some different level, but I will say that in this movie there was a unique engagement in the film with many relevant messages. All in all, I will say that the movie was very good. I enjoyed it along with my friends and family," he added. Produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment Films India, Treetop Entertainment and Shukla's Benchmark Pictures, the film opened on May 4.
