The climax is nice however might have been higher, contemplating all of the actors had assembled and there was scope for some actual insanity.

Varun Sharma supplies in a position help. Pooja Hegde and Jacqueline Fernandez look beautiful and their performances are okay. They’re hardly there; in reality, Siddharth Jadhav has extra display screen time than each the main girls put collectively. Siddharth Jadhav is the funniest actor within the movie and he’ll be liked. Sanjay Mishra comes subsequent and may be very humorous. Anil Charanjeett leaves a mark. Murli Sharma is apt for his function. Johny Lever (Polson Dada) is wasted, sadly.

NY VFXWaala’s VFX is satisfactory. Bunty Nagi’s enhancing might have been tighter.

On the entire, CIRKUS suffers from poor writing and compelled humour, and appeals solely in bits and items, extra so within the second half. One positively anticipated extra from a Rohit Shetty movie. On the field workplace, the movie could reap the advantage of the Christmas and New 12 months holidays.
