    Great film, but....
    Loved this film. A real feel-good movie and as a cricket fan who remembers the brilliant India World Cup win of '83, it was even better. Really good mix of the acted parts with real footage. Only criticism I gave is there are quite a few goofs (probably deliberate) which are obviously trying to present things in a modern style. I certainly don't remember any violent clashes between fans at a cricket match - this is cricket, not football. The 'Barmy Army' did not exist until 1994, and they are about fun, not violence. They appreciate good cricket and would have recognised the huge achievement by a brilliant Indian side.

    Absolute fantastic
    What a movie it its... Rollercoaster of emotions... Tears and smiles...!!! They way the emotions are captured in every frame is just beautiful. Kudos to the cast and crew. Loved it just loved it. Every character crafted with conviction and reality. Ranveer singh is just mind blowing, he is like water takes shape and form of every character he plays. He is perfect fit for Kapil Dev, and all the characters that have been casted are absolute perfect. I have watched the movie thrice till now and this one is on rewatch list. Kabir khan did stunning job on this one like his previous movies all in all its a fabulous movie.

    '83 - a saga relived
    Lost count of the times I watched "83" over OTT

    Countless reasons I could recite :

    1. Although I watched none of the matches over Television, I followed the BBC commentary except, as you guessed right, the Zimbabwe match ! Watching the movie, I could re-live those weeks I spent almost 40 years back.

    2. The impeccable impersonation of Ranveer singh as Kapil, who I revere above Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar.

    3. The camaraderie of the actors who donned the roles of those players, whom I could name without batting my eye lid !

    4. The humorous whining of Pankaj Tripathi (P R Man singh) about money matters, re scheduling flights and his adoration of Kapil !

    5. The mad speech of Jiva (Krish Srikkanth) culmintaing in a moving tribute to his Captain in answer to David Frith's "Rather splendid job" jibe.

    6. The banter of Sandeep Patil, Yashpal, Kirthi Azad, Ravi Shastri, and Ballu AKA Balvinder Sandhu.

    7. The cool and calm demeanor of Saquib Salim (Mohinder Amarnath).

    8. The impeccable swagger by the actor in the role of Viv Richards.

    9. Yashpal's innings during England match.

    10. Ballu's banana inswinger.

    11. Madan lal's pleadings to Kapil to give him the all important over to dismiss Viv Richards.

    12. Kapil, Mohinder, and Srikkanth's free meals !

    13. Kapil's all important team meeting in the Bus and the banter of the players that followed.

    14. Introduction of the team members to Queen Elizabeth.

    15. Kapil's Catch of Viv Richards.

    16. Dismissal of Michael Holding by Jimmy Amarnadh, which was upheld by the umpire in a flash but took 15 seconds on the screen just for the dramatic effect.

    And many many more reasons


    Not in the least

    The Magnificent 175 n.o. By Kapil, against Zimbabwe which I consider to be the pillar of the entire movie and not the dismissal of Viv Richards as depicted in the movie !!

    Excessive and unnecessary melodramatic movie
    Acting and screenplay could've been better, alot of unnecessary melodrama ruined the experience.

    Not every movie is Uri or mission kashmir, leave the over patriotism for war movies. It was movie about winning a cricket worldcup but didnt feel like it.
