The movie that came out after that, Jayeshbhai Jordaar, was met with criticism for both its story and its acting. Ranveer has now had three films in a row that have been unsuccessful at the box office.

What’s the story of Cirkus

The birth parents gave their children the names A square and B square, but their adoptive parents later changed their names to Roy (Ranveer Singh) and Joy (Varun Sharma). The twins were later adopted by two separate couples. Therefore, inadvertently putting in place a recipe for disaster and confusion that is destined to play out when these four boys grow up and run into each other as a result of the recipe being in place. That is exactly the one-line story (if we can call it that) of this Rohit Shetty picture that is supposed to be a comedy of errors but is abysmally poor on that element. However, the film is a comedy of errors.

Cirkus OTT release date

Cirkus is a film that is set in the beautiful green hills of Ooty and features colorful and unreal set pieces that were painstakingly created to look like they belong in a theme park. Cirkus is based in the late 1960s or early 1970s, and the filmmakers have made a valiant effort to pay tribute to the cinema of the era in this film. The only thing that is louder than the performers’ outfits from yesteryear is the actions they do, which is accompanied by several great Bollywood numbers that play in the background at any occasion that presents itself. The problem is not that it is an all-out slapstick comedy because Bollywood has seen countless films in that type that have brought the audience along for a joyride. The problem is that this particular film does not do that. In addition to that, it features a few movies from Rohit Shetty’s stable.

Cast & Crew of Cirkus

Ranveer Singh played two different characters for the first time in his career in the film that Rohit Shetty directed. In addition to him, Varun Sharma appeared in two different roles throughout the film, and Pooja Hegde and Jacqueline Fernandez took the primary roles of the two female protagonists. The supporting cast includes Sanjay Mishra, Johnny Lever, Ashwini Kalsekar, Siddhartha Jadhav, Vrajesh Hirjee, Tiku Talsania, Murali Sharma, Nikitin Dheer, Brijendra Kala, Anil Charanjeett, Sulabha Arya, and Vijay Patkar among others.

Jomon T. John has been in charge of the cinematography, and Bunty Nagi has been the one responsible for the editing. Amar Mohile is the one who contributed the score for the movie. It has been announced that the film’s distribution rights have been acquired by Reliance Entertainment.

Ranveer Singh puts in a valiant effort in each of the roles that he plays, but unfortunately, neither of them are played with sufficient conviction. A highlight that provides a welcome break from the monotony is Deepika Padukone’s cameo appearance in the song “Current Laga Re.” The comic timing that Varun Sharma possesses is severely underutilised in this scene, and in the end, it is up to the ever-reliable Johny Lever (in the role of Polson bhai) to bring in some much-needed organic laughs. Even though he only has a few minutes of screen time, the master comic manages to create more hilarious situations than the rest of the ensemble combined.

Pooja Hegde shines brightly despite the sombre nature of her character, Mala, Roy’s wife. As Roy’s girlfriend, Jacqueline Fernandez immediately raises the level of glitz and glamour in the situation, and she succeeds in doing so. Sanjay Mishra once again sacrifices himself for the good of the team by taking on a role that isn’t humorous; yet, the actor makes up for the absence in the writing and the missing punchlines, which is a repeating problem with this unfunny mess.
