Since its release in theatres on December 24, Kabir Khan’s 83, which stars Ranveer Singh in the main role, has received a slew of positive reviews from film critics and moviegoers alike. Based on the Indian cricket team’s historic victory against the West Indies at Lord’s Cricket Ground in 1983, the film is set in India. Following a series of coronavirus lockdowns, 83 had to be delayed multiple times before it was finally released on DVD in December of last year.
Now, in an interview with mid-day, director Kabir Khan has hinted that the film may be streamed on an OTT site as a result of the rapid increase of COVID-19 cases in the nation. Several governments have ordered the closure of movie theatres in order to stem the surge of covid cases.
“This project was completed with us 18 months ago,” Kabir Khan said in an interview with the publication. We wanted people to be able to watch it on a large screen because that is how it was intended to be seen. However, such is the nature of the times in which we live. We worked very hard to find a secure location for the film, yet the day of its premiere saw an increase in the number of reported instances. By the fourth day, all of Delhi’s theatres were closed.”

Storyline Of 83 Movie OTT

Director And Production Of 83 Movie OTT

Ratings And Box Office Collection Of 83 Movie OTT
The film did not get a positive reception when it was released in theatres. After spending Rs.270 crore on production, the film earned Rs.192 crore at the box office, making it one of the year’s most disappointing box office disappointment.
There are a variety of reasons why 83 Movie did not garner the anticipated box office revenue as the filmmakers had hoped. The first and most apparent reason is that the film was released at the same time as ‘Spider Man No Way Home,’ which was a huge smash in theatres. Other factors include the fact that the film was released at the height of the Omicron virus outbreak, which resulted in a decrease in the number of people who went to the movies.
The movie may not provide the level of enjoyment that the audience had anticipated. This is one of the secondary explanations. However, despite the fact that the ensemble is very skilled and does excellent work, the film fails to create an emotional connection with the viewer. The viewer is unable to connect with the main storyline, and there is also no antagonist in the film to contend with.
We all knew how dominant the West Indies cricket team was in the 1980s, yet the squad is only given a passing mention in the film. There were several loopholes that contributed to the reduction in the box office collection for the 83 film.
How Can I Watch 83 At Home?

Therefore, the movie is just being exhibited in the theatres so far.
