Not a good second weekend for Cirkus box office

Key Takeaways:

  • Family comedy Cirkus continues to struggle financially; on its second Friday, it only made $30.25 crore nett, which is less than the $29,25 crore nett it earned in its first week.
  • Drishyam 2 has performed better than Cirkus at many of India’s larger theatres, despite the comedy having more theatres playing it.

On its seventh Friday, Drishyam 2, now in its seventh week, continued its remarkable run at the box office, bringing in about 75 lakhs nett. A total of 224 crore nett has been collected for the Hindi sequel. 

Cirkus, a family comedy, is still losing money; on its second Friday, it only brought in $30.25 crore nett, down from the $29,25 crore nett it made in its first week.

The movie Cirkus, in which Ranveer Singh plays two roles, must have a strong second weekend if it wants to make a $40 million net in its second week. 

The comedy of errors by William Shakespeare inspired Rohit Shetty’s direction in the film. Varun Sharma, Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez, Johnny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, and Siddharth Jadhav are a few other members of the ensemble cast.

A review of the 2021 Malayalam movie of the same name starrer Mohanlal and Meena, Drishyam 2 stars Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, Tabu, and Akshaye Khanna.

As reported by the trade website Box Office India, the thriller brought in more money on its seventh Friday than the week before.

It can surpass Brahmastra’s current Hindi box office record of 230 crore nett if it can draw in audiences throughout the New Year’s weekend.

Furthermore, despite the comedy having more theatres playing it, Drishyam 2 has outperformed Cirkus at many of the larger theatres in India. 

Since its November 18 release, the suspense movie has received positive word-of-mouth and may surpass Cirkus’ earnings over this holiday weekend.

In a review of Drishyam 2, “Drishyam 2 has an advantage over its predecessor and stays on the course thanks to an equally compelling screenplay by Aamil Keeyan Khan and Pathak. 

Characters are filmed in slow motion and up close, maintaining tension. Even though the first half does have a few lulls, the second half picks up the pace, and the final 30 minutes will have you applauding, cheering, and even blowing a few whistles.

You don’t object when Drishyam 2 unapologetically throws fully filmic dialogues at you one after another because they never seem to stop.”
