83 gets 'underwhelming' start, mints just Rs on Day 1



New Delhi: 

Despite garnering praises from all quarters, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone-starrer ’83’ couldn’t make it big at the box office, grossing only ₹ 12.64 cr on Day 1, as per the figures shared by film critic Taran Aadarsh. 

“#83TheFilm is underwhelming on Day 1… Excellent at premium multiplexes, ordinary in Tier-2 cities, dull in mass pockets… #Christmas holiday should ensure jump in biz… #PVR, #INOX, #Cinepolis [Day 2] Already showing *big profit*… Fri ₹12.64 Cr. #India biz. All versions,” he wrote.

The film’s collection has also been affected by ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, which is ruling the box office with a collection of around Rs 150 crore in eight days of release. However, the numbers are expected to see an increase during the Christmas weekend. New Year’s cheers can also bring film-goers to theatres, which will further increase the film’s profit.

Kabir Khan-directed ’83’, which revolves around India’s historic Cricket World Cup victory in 1983, stars Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev, who was the captain of the Indian team in 1983.

Interestingly, Ranveer’s wife- actor Deepika Padukone will be seen playing the role of Kapil Dev’s wife Romi in ’83’. The film also stars Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jeeva, Saqib Saleem, Jatin Sarna, Chirag Patil, Dinkar Sharma, Nishant Dahiya, Sahil Khattar, Ammi Virk, Adinath Kothare, Dhairya Karva, R Badri and Pankaj Tripathi.
