Review: The Cirkus trailer mixed response

Key Takeaways:

  • Many criticise Ranveer’s obnoxious expression, the slapstick comedy attempt, and the film’s general lack of humour.
  • On December 23, Cirkus is set to make its debut. The movie is produced by Rohit Shetty Picturez and is presented by T-Series.

On Friday, the first trailer for Ranveer Singh’s Cirkus was released, and Reddit has commented on it. Many people disapprove of Ranveer’s exaggerated expression, the slapstick comedy attempt, and the overall lack of humour in the piece. The director of Cirkus is Rohit Shetty.

The Comedy of Errors, a classic play by William Shakespeare, centres on two sets of identical twins who have inadvertently split apart at birth. 

Cirkus is based on this play. Jacqueline Fernandez, Pooja Hegde, and numerous other comedians like Varun Sharma and Johnny Lever are also featured in it.

Following the trailer’s launch on social media, many people expressed dissatisfaction with it on Reddit. Ranveer’s animated faces from the trailer were collected in a Reddit post. 

Not certain if this is a repeat post, but a section of Bollywood still believes that this is what the audience will find appealing in 2022, according to the post’s title. Others echo the sentiments. 

Regarding director Rohit Shetty, someone stated that “the guy is insulting the intelligence of those who spend their hard-earned money on his movies.”

Others concurred that although Rohit’s movies have good box office numbers, they want this one to “flop hard.” “Worst trailer,” read another comment. It’s a circus.

Regarding Ranveer’s acting, one commenter said, “So much for a versatile actor. I’m so mad. I was truly rooting for him.” “I know it’s a trailer, but what a hammering performance he is giving,” one person exclaimed. 

I wish he would collaborate with Vikramaditya Motwane once more, read another comment. Along the same lines, someone else said, “His issue isn’t that he isn’t a good comedic actor. 

He tends to overdo everything, which is a problem. He needs directors who can keep him in check and keep them on solid ground. The directors who did that gave him a good performance.

At the press conference on Friday, Ranveer spoke about the movie and said, “Rohit sir always fulfils my dream; he was the first to present me as a cop, and now he made me do comedy. We made this comedy to make the audience laugh and forget about their problems.

The movie Cirkus is scheduled to debut on December 23. The film is presented by T-Series and produced by Rohit Shetty Picturez.
