The film received many positive responses from the Instagram as well. Here is a compilation of the same:
This Singh-starrer is a recreation of India's World Cup victory in 1983, a victory that was a watershed moment for Indian cricket, but one that few people saw at the time due to the lack of televisions in the country. For those who were not alive at the time, this film surely serves as a reminder of the historic events, with actors adding drama to the proceedings.
