Cirkus: Box Office Report
The film was released in theatres as a Christmas special on December 23, 2022; however, it failed to impress. Reviewers pointed out flaws related to the VFX, story, screenplay, performances, soundtrack, production values, and more. The film’s performance at the box office was also below average. Made at a massive budget of approximately Rs. 150 crores, the film was termed as one of the biggest commercial failures, as it collected only about Rs. 57 crores worldwide, out of which Rs. 38.21 crore was from India and Rs. 19.03 crore was from overseas distribution.
Sharing their thoughts, several critics expressed their displeasure about the film. Film Companion’s Anupama Chopra said, “Cirkus is a mess”, while Taran Adarsh stated that Cirkus “Lacks entertainment and humour you associate with a #RohitShetty film…” The review posted on Bollywood Hungama reported, “Cirkus suffers from poor writing and forced humour, and appeals only in bits and pieces.”
