The sports drama 83, directed by Kabir Khan and starring Ranveer Singh in the lead role, premiered in 2021 on the occasion of Christmas. However, a lot of things went terribly wrong with the movie. It was well received by critics but did not see as many audiences in theaters as expected. This turned out to be a losing deal for the creators. Now this film is ready to reach the audience on a large scale. There are reports that the digital premiere of 83 will take place on not one but two giant OTT platforms.
According to a news diary, 83 will launch simultaneously on Netflix and Disney Plus Hotstar. Needless to say, both platforms have the top 5 subscription base in the country. With the film in both places, you will be able to reach a large audience. Ranveer Singh played the role of Kapil Dev in the film. While Deepika Padukone is in the role of his wife. Apart from these two, more than one artist was seen in different roles in 83. These include actors like Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jeeva, Saqib Saleem, Jatin Sharma, Chirag Patil, Dinkar Sharma, Hardy Sandhu, Amy Virk, Neena Gupta and Boman Irani.

The story of the film is based on real events.
83 is a movie based on real events. The story of the film is based on India’s first victory in the one-day Cricket World Cup. The India team was equipped with young players. Kapil Dev was the captain. Although nobody knew that the Indian team would win the title by defeating the two-time world champion West Indies. India was counted among the worst teams in the tournament. But when the tournament started, the India team, going through all the difficult situations, did that feat which not only changed the image of India but also of world cricket. Never in the history of the World Cup has such an exciting victory been seen again.
When will the film be released on OTT?
Netflix reportedly bought the Hindi rights to the film, while Disney has the Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam rights. Kamal Haasan Nagarjuna’s companies in association with Reliance have released Tamil and Telugu versions of the film. Similarly, Prithviraj and Sudeep’s companies have introduced Malayalam and Kannada versions. The sports drama is said to air from February 18 to 25. The film was made in five languages and released theatrically.
Despite the hype he was beaten 83
The hype of the sports drama was seen before the release. The corona epidemic had a great impact on the film and its realization was affected as well as its premiere. It was supposed to be released a long time ago. Later the date of Christmas was fixed. However, 83 did not know how to take advantage of the Christmas weekend. After release, Ranveer’s film seemed to be stalling on many fronts. One, two existing movies did a lot of damage at the box office. The films were: Allu Arjun’s Hindi version of Pushpa The Rise and Hollywood’s Spiderman: No Way Home. The earnings of both films against 83 are staggering. The Hindi version of Pushpa earned 106 million rupees while all versions of Spiderman crossed 200 million rupees. The Hindi version of 83 earned just 102 crores.
Pushpa was also released in many languages. 83, which was released in southern languages, did not have many viewers. The noise from the third wave of Corona also damaged the film. Apprehensions began to surface only after the release. The nightly curfew and established crowd control rules went against the film in every area. Even movie theaters were closed in many cities, including Delhi. Atrangi Re, which launched exclusively on OTT at Christmas, also gave the audience a better option amid the noise of the pandemic. Well, now that the movie is on OTT, then maybe the audience total is over.
