83, sports drama, directed by Kabir Khan, featuring Ranveer Singh as former cricketer Kapil Dev and Deepika Padukone as Romi Dev, earned ₹47 crores in its opening weekend. A renowned Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the figures on Twitter and expressed disappointment with its box office collection so far.
“#83TheFilm disappoints… Biz witnessed slight growth *outside metros* on Day 3, but not enough to cover lost ground… The jump on Day 2 [#Christmas] and Day 3 [Sun] had to be massive since #Christmas is one of the best periods, but it was missing,” he wrote on Twitter.
He added in the same tweet as the thread that “The non-performance of #83TheFilm has sent shockwaves since it comes with a big price tag and bigger expectations… Plus, the extensive screen count [3741 screens; all versions], so it had to deliver… Fri 12.64 cr, Sat 16.95 cr, Sun 17.41 cr. Total: ₹47 cr. #India biz”.
Who does not know the plot of this movie? Based on the legendary feat achieved by our Indian cricket team in the 1983 World Cup. We beat West Indies against all odds to lift our first cricket World Cup.
India became the second team to lift the World Cup trophy, and it was just as magical as you are thinking. And this movie somehow recreates that exact scene that my father used to tell me. 83 is an experience that all of you should witness at least once.
Why 83 Movie failed even after having a great response from the Audience

#Boycott83 trending on Twitter
SSR fans are not happy with Ranveer Singh. The commercial, which was meant to be comical, sees Ranveer seen dealing with nosy elders by using complex physics terms in a gibberish sentence. While several found the ad funny, it didn’t go down well with SSR fans. SSR claimed that Ranveer had mocked their idol, Sushant Singh Rajput.
Criticizing Ranveer and his wife Deepika Padukon’s silence over the injustice after Sushant’s death, fans demanded a complete boycott of Ranveer Singh’s latest movie, 83. #Boycott83 became one of the top trends on Twitter.
“Ranveer Singh has mocked Sushant multiple times. Would you please show our unity and make his film super duper flop? SSR An Incredible Human Being #Boycott83,” wrote one of the fans. “Guys, please boycott 83 as Ranveer is challenging MS Dhoni film and all the media will start belittling our beloved SSR., so Pls pls boycott #Boycott83,” read another post.
So these were some of the reasons behind the failure of 83 Movie. All these reasons collectively affected the business of 83. TamilRockers, Filmyzilla, Mp4moviez, Filmywap, Moviesflixleak leak, Omicron, and #Boycott83 have shown their effect on the collection of 83.
