The year 1983 is an emotional year for every Indian, remembered for the valour of the team of 14 legends, led by Kapil Dev, that won India its first cricket world cup at Lord’s. Post 38 years, Ranveer Singh and his team re-evoked the same feeling within us by giving us the 83 movie trailer.
Directed by Kabir Khan, the 83 movie pictures India’s journey of winning its first cricket world cup fighting all odds and of course, the West Indies. The movie also stars the likes of Deepika Padukone who is playing the onscreen role of Kapil Dev’s wife, Romi Bhatia. The 83 movie trailer was released on November 30; and in no-time took the internet by storm. And it is not just because of the emotional memories it revokes but also for the amazing onscreen portrayal of Kapil Dev and other players by actors like Ranveer Singh, Pankaj Tripathi, Hardy Sandhu, Jiiva and more.
The 83 movie will release on 24 December 2021, and yes it’s way too long for us to wait. However, to keep the excitement intact and prepare you for the Christmas delight, we not only scooped out a secret from Kapil Dev’s horoscope but also the old pictures of the 1983 World cup players to not only remember their valour but also their machoness. Here we go:
After losing two matches in a row, India’s was to play against Zimbabwe in the must-win encounter during the 1983 World Cup. As the match began, India saw itself struggling at 17/5. It was then Kapil Dev walked on the field to play a 175 run knock and win the match for India, keeping our World Cup 1983 hopes alive.
Surely it’s Kapil Dev’s tremendous hard work that needs to be credited here but what else we can give credit to is one of the Mahapurusha yogas in Kapil Dev’s kundli.
For the unaware, there is a term in astrology called Panch Mahapurusha yoga. The panch mahapurusha yoga is formed when Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn gets placed in their own or exalted sign in Kendra and Trikon.
Panch Mahapurdha yoga is a combination of five yogas and even if any one of these five form in your kundli, it can benefit you a lot.
The five yogas are named Ruchak Yoga by Mars, Bhadra Yoga by Mercury, Hansa Yoga by Jupiter, Malvya yoga by Venus and Sasa Yoga by Saturn.
Interestingly, Kapil Dev’s kundli has the Ruchak Yoga. This is a powerful yoga formed when:
Ruchak Yoga in Kapil’s Dev horoscope allows him the assertion, passion, and energy to deal with difficult opportunities like one he faced and conquered back in 1983.
