2022’s period comedy hit by Rohit Shetty is streaming on OTT in February. Considered the fifth instalment in the superhit Golmaal franchise, Cirkus is a remake of 1982’s Angoor, which itself is based on Shakespeare’s play The Comedy of Errors. While the box office numbers don’t have much to show for it, Cirkus is the perfect watch for movie fans who love Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh. The movie is crazy – it tells the story of two sets of identical twins who were estranged at birth but meet when they are adults. The movie is set in the Golmaal universe, possibly before the events of Golmaal Again. Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Varun Sharma are superb in supporting roles.
