83 chronicles the journey of the Indian cricket team as they won their first ODI World Cup in England. After being pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic, the film is all set to release this week and stars Ranveer Singh, Saqib Saleem, Harrdy Sandhu, Ammy Virk, Pankaj Tripathi, Jatin Sarna, Sahil Khattar, Jiiva and Deepika Padukone.

The movie captures India's fantastic campaign that is led by Kapil Dev, with illustrious teammates such as Srikkanth, Yashpal Sharma, Mohinder Amarnath, Roger Binny, Balwinder Sandhu, Sandeep Patil and Madan Lal all playing their part in the win.

India had defeated West Indies in the final of the World Cup at Lord's and that apart, among the most remembered and talked about games is the one against Zimbabwe where Kapil Dev scored an unbeaten 175 at Turnbridge Wells. India had to win the game after losing two of the four previously.

India only lost against West Indies and Australia in the World Cup then.
