It sucks you into that year… that World Cup , that team, that political climate, that mad fandom frenzy… I saw myself rooting for every member of that historic team… Laughing and crying with each one of them … I saw myself rooting for Kabir Khan and his maestro ability of storytelling…. Taking an arduous task and perfecting it like a mega methodical master! Salute!”

Karan further praised Ranveer for his development and desire to play Kapil Dev in this famous film. He penned, “I saw myself believing that @ranveersingh had transformed into the Legend Kapil Dev with the ease and genius of a bonafide veteran! He is so so good that’s it’s almost unbelievable at so many points! Restrain and power all at once! He has hit it out of the stadium! My hugest congratulations to the entire cast, crew, and all the proud producers of this magnificent movie!”

Deepika's reaction after seeing 83 for the first time was disclosed by the film's director, Kabir Khan. In the film, Deepika plays Romi Dev, Kapil Dev's wife. “She was not being able to speak, she was choking up,” he said. Deepika was overcome with emotion after seeing 83 for the first time, according to Kabir.

Many celebrities have praised 83, describing it as a "true reconstruction" of India's 1983 World Cup victory. "Went to watch @RanveerOfficial in #83," actor Suniel Shetty posted on Twitter, praising the film's stellar cast. He was nowhere to be found. On the screen, there was only #KapilDev. Amazing change. I am completely taken aback. A cast that may have walked away from Lords. I got gooseflesh as if I were reliving the year 1983. "The artwork and emotions have left me stunned and teary-eyed."

Deepika Padukone, Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Harrdy Sandhu, Neena Gupta, Ammy Virk, Jiiva, Boman Irani, and others also star in the film.
