Fashion photographer Abrid Shine is making his debut as a director, with the film 1983, with Cricket as the backdrop.

Nivin Pauly, who is shining bright after Thattathin Marayathu is doing the role of a cricket aficionado who hasn't made it really well in the cricket field. But that doesn't deter him from loving the game.
Anoop Menon plays a coach, who used to play cricket on a professional level. Jacob Gregory of Akkarakkazhchakal fame, Rajeev Pillai and Aju Varghese include the cast.

“Though the main theme is cricket, this story is driven by emotions,” explains Abrid Shine. The search for the heroine is on right now.
Nivin and Rajeev are two of the key players of the Kerala team in the Celebrity Cricket League.
