83 showcases the story of India's iconic win at the 1983 World Cup. The film hit the screens last week in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. 83 boasts of an impressive star cast that includes Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, Pankaj Tripathi as manager PR Man Singh, Ammy Virk as Balwinder Singh Sandhu, Saahil Khattar as Syed Kirmani and Tahir Bhasin played the role of Sunil Gavaskar in the film. Deepika Padukone played Kapil Dev's wife Romi on screen.
The film opened to stellar reviews. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for NDTV, gave the film 4 stars out of 5 and he wrote: "There can be no denying that 83 is the film it is because of the astounding central performance by Ranveer Singh. In fact, it would be inaccurate to call it a performance. The lead actor lives the part and, like Kapil Dev did, leads from the front. There is no pottering around for him. He grasps the role with unbridled passion and meets its demands head-on."
