Ace director Kabir Khan’s multi-starrer sports biographical drama 83 has recently been released in theaters, a film made on a big scale where the makers and stars put everything to make this a masterpiece.
But the time seems not good for such film, two much-hyped films Spider-Man and Pushpa: The Rise already dominating the Indian Box Office, their Box Office success stat reaches new peak day by day.
Not only clash on theaters, but OTT release Atrangi Re is also a headache for 83 as the film received rave positive reviews and at the time of the pandemic, the moviegoers choose this over sports drama.
Social media flooded with hashtag Boycott 83 where late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s fans slammed lead actor Ranveer Singh for mocking the late soul, their aggression and unity also affected this film a bit.
83: The Film is the widest release post-covid but the opening Box Office number was just 12.64 Crore, the expectation was high as the second day was a holiday Merry Christmas but audiences choose Spider-Man and Pushpa over this film, and failed to show major growth on Merry Christmas Weekend.

This big Budget sports movie is historic but its release time is not suitable, critics and audiences praising direction, acting, Deepika Padukone’s choice as producer, she is also playing the role of Kapil Dev or Ranveer Singh’s on-screen wife.
Merry Christmas occasion release this film is struggling to collect big at Box Office Number. Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey or another sports drama postponed, so this film holds a good number, 100 Cr Nett at Domestic seems possible now but the corona scenario is also back.
