Chup Movie Cast:
Chup Movie Audience Review: Story
The story of the film revolves around a serial killer who targets film critics. The film depicts the pain of an artist who suffers from “wrong criticism”. R Balki brings yet another out-of-the-box movie to the audience. We don’t provide spoilers so we won’t disclose more information on the story.
Chup Movie Audience Review: Direction
While the trailer cut was intriguing, I was worried about how the subject would be handled as such a topic could easily go into the “spoof” genre. But to our surprise, the film is beautifully scripted with logical justifications. At no point, I felt that I have to keep my mind at home while watching this thriller! R Balki is truly a cinema buff & has done a very good job as a director in the film.
Chup Movie Audience Review: Screenplay
Unlike thriller films where comedy is used as a filler in the screenplay, Chup uses comedy in the narrative itself without going “out” of the script. It uses subtle references to the theme & situational comedy which fits smoothly and aids the narrative. As an entire movie experience, the first half is excellent and like all other Bollywood films, it faces the curse of the second half. It felt a little bit stretched especially the last 10 mins “after” the climax which was redundant. Thanks to the gripping screenplay by R. Balki that will keep you at the edge of your seat till the end & you will feel curious that what will happen next.
Chup Movie Audience Review: Music
Special mention to the BGM tune used throughout – which is also present in the trailer. Amit Pant’s background score is impressive and pleasing to hear throughout the film. The songs of the film are passable.
Chup Movie Audience Review: Performances
As far as performances are concerned, Dulquer Salmaan owns the show. His range is commendable especially after watching Sita Ramam. We were pleasantly surprised to watch Sunny Deol on-screen in a character that is not larger than life. We must say his screen presence is superlative and less talked about! Unfortunately, he doesn’t have much scope in the film. The rest of the other actors played their parts well.
Chup Movie Audience Review: Final Verdict
Overall Chup is an edge-of-seat thriller film that should be watched for the impressive performances of the cast & interesting plot of the film. However, the film could have been shortened by 10-15 mins and less stretched in the second half of the film after the climax. The film definitely deserves a watch for its novelty concept & will attract the audience from this genre.
The film will hit the screen on national cinema day and has a bumper advance booking already. The tickets will be sold for Rs. 75 on the 22nd of September at all the leading multiplexes & theaters in the country.
