Even Kapil Dev wouldn’t have ever thought that his demeanour and his style could be brought to life in such an exemplary way as done by Ranveer Singh. The trailer of Kabir Khan’s 83 has just dropped. Understandably, Twitter has gone wild. Ranveer Singh, playing Kapil Dev, steps into the shoes of the veteran Indian World Cup-winning captain just perfectly.

83 hits the theatres on December 24 this year. While Christmas is still three weeks away, Ranveer Singh's fans seem to have started the celebrations early.

But first, watch the trailer of 83:

Now, to the trailer.

After playing iconic roles like Alauddin Khilji in Padmaavat or a budding hip hop star in Gully Boy, Ranveer Singh essays the role of Kapil Dev in the movie. “We are here to win, what else are we here for,” the dialogue in the trailer itself tells you that Ranveer has hit the role spot on. The same depth in the eyes, and the way Ranveer delivers the dialogues speaks volumes about his character study. Even non-Ranveer fans will acknowledge the actor's efforts this time, it seems.


Deepika has been missing from the big screen since Chhapaak (2020). 83 marks Deepika's return to the big screen. Padukone plays the wife of Kapil Dev, Romi Dev, in the movie.


Not many know that when the Indian team travelled to the West Indies for the 1983 World Cup, they were without a coach; batting, bowling, fielding coaches; but with a BCCI official, PR Man Singh, who was the manager of the team. “35 saal pehle hum log azadi jeete, lekin izzat jeetna abhi baaki hai kaptaan,” a teary-eyed Pankaj Tripathi says to Kapil Dev in the trailer.

Talking to PTI last year, Tripathi said that going through the script of the movie 83 was a emotional ride for him. There were moments in the script, he said, where he was moved to tears and was really inspired by Kapil Dev.


Perhaps the only thing that sells more than religion in India is cricket. For cricket fans, the game is the strongest emotion. 83 the movie takes us back to 1983, when an underdog team like India won the World Cup and the whole country was proud of it. Going back to those moments would certainly be a delightful ride for all of us. After all, hum World Cup jeete they! Here are some Twitter reactions.
