The victory of the Indian cricket team in the 1983 world cup is probably one of the most cherishing moments in the history of Indian sports. That incident can be perfectly quoted as a ” Giant Leap Of Faith” over the predictions. India were never the favourites, yet the Indian team dominated the world cup final over the then reigning world champions West Indies. This glory scripted by Kapil Dev and team is now being recreated in the form of a bollywood film starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone as ‘ 83 ‘.
New Faces Shine In The Upcoming Film
Apart from Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, the film stars Tahir Raj Bhasin as Sunil Gavaskar, Saqib Saleem as Mohinder Amarnath, Dhairya Karwa as Ravi Shastri, Jiiva as Krishnamachari Srikkanth, Harrdy Sandhu as Madan Lal, Ammy Virk as Balwinder Sandhu, Sahil Khattar as Syed Kirmani, Chirag Patil as Sandeep Patil, Adinath Kothare as Dilip Vengsarkar, Dinker Sharma as Kirti Azad, Jatin Sarna as Yashpal Sharma, Nishant Dahiya as Roger Binny and R Badree as Sunil Valson.
Pankaj Tripathi plays PR Man Singh, the popular Indian cricket team’s manager, and Deepika Padukone plays Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev. Pankaj Tripathi’s presence in the movie is a cherry on the top with his performance well received by the audience watching the trailer of ” 83 “.
Storyline With A Nailbiting Finish
On 25th of June 1983, the Lord’s Cricket Ground witnessed one of the biggest underdog stories in the history of sports. Fourteen inspired men fought against all odds and orchestrated India’s greatest sporting triumph by beating the twice-over World Champions West Indies! This victory put India on the map again and provided the platform to make India the greatest cricketing nation in the world today. Armed with self-belief and conviction, one man guided the team to a historic victory.
83 is scheduled to release theatrically on December 24, in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. Hopefully this movie will live up to the expectations of the audience and justify the legacy of Indian legends once more. This movie will also pave as a gateway for many budding stars essaying crucial characters in their future projects as a symbol of achievement.
