Sadly, the historic match against Zimbabwe was never covered for the generations to witness. The director of this upcoming autobiographical movie ’83, Kabir Khan shared on Instagram: “The match that was never televised… a world record innings that India never saw… this April the world will see how history was made on that cold windy day in Tunbridge Wells…”
However, his movie might help the audience revisit the past and those impeccable innings of Dev. Cricket holds special importance within the hearts of every Indian, whether they are interested in the sport or not. The cricket matches are a matter of pride and in case of a defeat, hurts the sentiments of many.
Hence, this film is ought to bring out many emotions of not just the youngsters but of the people that lived through that period. Kapil Dev was a remarkable and most able cricketer of his time. It’s great to see Ranveer doing the honors of playing him.
