Went to watch @RanveerOfficial in #83. Couldn’t spot him. There was only #KapilDev on screen. Incredible transformation. I am stunned beyond. A team cast that could’ve walked off Lords. Got gooseflesh like I was reliving ‘83. Still shaken & teary-eyed at the artistry & emotions. pic.twitter.com/IW8zGYNsyc

Overall with some ups & down #ThisIs83 turns out to be a GOOD film with fabulous ending that makes you forget all the weakness in the film, I strongly feel that this film has potential to touch ₹120cr in worst case scenario and ₹150cr if audience showers love…. #83Review

After watching #83, I came back and watched Kapil Dev’s old interviews. And I think I’m bowled over (once again) by how brilliantly @RanveerOfficial
has played the part! Also, hats off to @jatinsarna @JiivaOfficial @AmmyVirk and the full team – it really does take a team!! 💯
