Ranveer Singh starrer 83 crosses ₹100 Crores mark. Kabir Khan, director of 83 called the film a ‘Victim of Pandemic’. He said that this film has been hit hard by Covid.
The movie was released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam on December 24. Reliance Entertainment shared the news on their social media account.
The film is about India’s iconic win in World Cup 1983. While Ranvir Singh looks like a mirror image of Kapil Dev. The epic journey of the Indian cricket team from underdogs to true winners will surely give you goosebumps. The aesthetics were kept very simple and little incidents from players' life were put together to help the viewers to feel their experiences.
The film is greatly appreciated by the audiences. The film did total justice in capturing and delivering all the incidences in a rightful manner on the big screen.
In an earlier interview, the film's director, Kabir Khan, had said: "I can't control a film's fate at the box office. What I can do is to put in as much honest effort in my work as I can."
The resurgence of the pandemic may have stymied '83' commercially, although it is still running in theatres across the country, Kabir Khan can take solace from the fact that film critics across the world have been unanimous in their praise for the film. As The Guardian, reflecting the consensus view of critics, put it: "It is an endearing sports film with just enough awareness of where it stands, now that Britain's imperial legacy is being questioned more than ever, on a larger field."
