Former New Zealand cricketer Richard Hadlee sent a poignant email for cricket star and India's pride Kapil Dev recently, congratulating him on the success of '83' and how the experience of seeing the uplifting sports drama impacted him entirely.
Kapil Dev took to social media to post Hadlee's email, saying,
"Thank you for your nice thoughts, Richard. I'm delighted you liked the movie. This is a genuinely unique message from you."
'83,' one of the most popular and well-received films in recent memory, was praised by critics and viewers alike throughout the world. The magnum opus directed by renowned director Kabir Khan made ripples not only in India but throughout the world, as moviegoers celebrated India's win in theatres.
The amazing sports tale battled against all difficulties, including the global epidemic, like the Indian squad in 1983. '83' cruised to victory across India and key outside markets, despite an increase in the number of Covid-19 cases.
"The sort of love that's coming out for '83' is astounding," Kabir Khan said at the time. It's a film that will be remembered for years to come and will be one of my career's defining films."
According to the reviews, '83 is not just a film, it's an emotion,' therefore the sports drama commemorates India's greatest sporting achievement and is more than simply a box office success.
Kamal Haasan’s Raajkamal Films International and Akkineni Nagarjuna’s Annapurna Studios joined hands with Reliance Entertainment to present the Tamil and Telugu versions respectively of the film. Prithviraj’s production, and Kichcha Sudeepa’s Shalini Arts presented the film in Malayalam and Kannada versions.
