One of the Bollywood biggies that were kept under cans for a long time due to the COVID-19 pandemic is 83. Directed by Kabir Khan, this sports drama was supposed to release in April 2020 but the pandemic and the subsequent lockdown forced the makers to withdraw their decision. Finally, it is now gearing up for the release on December 24, 2021. This morning, the makers have unveiled the trailer of it and we have to say that it was stunning.
83 is based on the historic World Cup triumph of the Indian Cricket Team under the leadership of Kapil Dev in 1983. Ranveer Singh essayed the role of Kapil in this movie. The trailer showcases how Team India went to England as an underdog with no expectations baggage around it.
Reporters and other teams mocked Indians at the event. Still, the team had beaten all the odds and emerged victorious by defeating West Indies in the final.
