83 Trailer: India In World Cup Thriller

The trailer of 83 dropped on the Internet on Tuesday morning and within minutes, it took the Internet by storm.

The film, which is based on India's World Cup win in 1983, features Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev or should we say the "Haryana Hurricane" - a name he got for his brilliant game techniques.

The trailer opens at India's match against Zimbabwe on June 18 in 1983 at the Nevill Ground in England.

Team India is batting but unable to score well until Kapil Dev enters the game and flips it upside down by leading his team to victory.

For those who don't know, team India won the next game against Australia too on June 20 and played the final with West Indies on June 25.

The following shots show the Indian cricket team being treated poorly compared to West Indies players in England. Indian players practice hard and have some light, fun moments too during the tournament.

Ranveer Singh's wife and actress Deepika Padukone, who has been roped in to play Kapil Dev's wife Romi Bhatia onscreen, enters the frame and steals the show.

The team can be seen joking about Kapil Dev's dedication towards winning the World Cup by defeating West Indies at a get-together.

Cut to the final match shot, team India fails to perform well in the first half of the match and receives criticism from the crowd.

Pankaj Tripathi has been cast as manager PR Man Singh while Ammy Virk features as Balwinder Singh Sandhu, Saahil Khattar as Syed Kirmani and Tahir Bhasin has been zeroed in to play the role of Sunil Gavaskar in the film.

Sharing the trailer on Instagram, Ranveer Singh wrote: "The incredible true story of the underdogs who pulled off the unthinkable!"

'83 will open in theatres on December 24 this year in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
