Box office: Cirkus underwhelms while Avatar 2 wreaks even more mayhem in its second weekend

Cirkus, a comedy escapade directed by Rohit Shetty and starring Ranveer Singh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Pooja Hegde, and a slew of other performers, was released this past Friday. Cirkus, which drew inspiration from movies like Angoor and Do Dooni Chaar, was eagerly anticipated, with the industry placing a lot of hope in it for its comeback. Unfortunately, Cirkus was unable to post a respectable opening total on its first day of play and was forced to settle for being India’s second most popular option this holiday season.

Cirkus takes a low opening

The industry was completely taken aback by Cirkus’ all-India opening, which made about Rs. 6.25 cr nett and fell far short of films like Ek Villian Returns, which was a far lesser movie than Cirkus. A movie in this genre rarely receives support from the trending community because they have a fixed demographic to appeal to, and if they don’t show up for the premiere, they are unlikely to show up during the rest of the movie’s run. Avatar: The Way Of Water, which is currently on a box office tear in India with a total nett of over Rs. 200 cr nett, is a very strong competition for the movie in that regard.

Based on advance ticket sales, it can be said with absolute certainty that Avatar: The Way Of Water will not only dominate Cirkus but will do so by more than a double margin. On its second Friday, Avatar: The Way Of Water earned twice as much as Cirkus on its opening day. The Hindi film business is in ruins as a result of Cirkus’ underwhelming debut, as this was the movie that both the industry and the exhibition were counting on to bring in the crowds.

Expectations are obviously enormous for a director who rarely fails because Rohit Shetty has been the most reliable Hindi movie director in recent years with an almost flawless track record. Pathaan is the next big gamble for the rebirth of the Hindi film industry, and that movie needs to come out swinging if it wants to regain the confidence of everyone involved with the Hindi film industry in India.
