In brief: Peyronies/NO!

A "bad circumcision" should not have any effect on the curvature of the penis.
You may have a more significant problem with a condition called peyronies disease. This is a thickening of a deeper layer of tissue in the penis. See a urologist and get checked out. Perhaps you can have the "bend" fixed and the "bad circumcision" revised at the same time.
