It takes blood about one minute to make one complete circuit throughout your body. But this is only for the major arteries and veins. The average person has enough blood vessels, if you include all the venules, arterioles, and capillaries, to go around the world twice. So, then it would take much longer if included them too!

The blood moves from right ventricle of the heart to the lungs back to the left atrium.

You are talking about the pulmonary circulation. The blood (low in oxygen) is pumped by the right ventricle to the lungs by way of the pulmonary arteries.

It finishes the circle when it comes back to the heart by way of the pulmonary veins into the left side of the heart.
