8 / 10

A brutally honest and spine-chilling psychological thriller!

A brutally honest and spine-chilling psychological thriller from R Balki that flaunts a brilliant lead act from Dulquer Salmaan alongside a subtle and memorable cop-act by Sunny Deol !

The narrative by Balki moves in a lethargic pace but has its own beauty and the tight screenplay ensures that the audience is glued to the screens right from the word go!

The interval block and the climax sequences were top- notch and made memorable by haunting music and performances

The references to yesteryear classic 'Kagaz Ke Phool' by maestro Guru Dutt was intertwined cleverly with the narrative and deserves a special mention.

Overall,Chup is an authentic Balki craft that deserves a watch from the cinemas for its novel narrative,stellar performances and beautiful musical score.

Bollywood needs films like this !

Most of us will be aware of what to predict from a psycho-thriller, a cat and mouse game between the killer and the cop, the killer's past and the motive, the climax, and all that. What makes this movie different from other thrillers is that the whole concept which the film try speak itself is something distinctive and never seen before.

On top of all that DQ's performance stands out. One of the good thrillers to be considered to watch in the cinema and won't disappoint anyone, just surprised by the fact that this movie is rated pg15 in UAE with all its blood and gore while it's rated A in India.

9 / 10

Very Gripping and unique

Finally, a movie which deserves good word-of-mouth publicity. Watched the preview show and I am quite impressed with the screenplay and direction.

Background reprised music kept the soul of the film alive. Has one song which I felt should have been avoided to keep the intensity intact.

Performance is good, all supporting casts played their role well.

It was nice to see Sunny and Pooja after so long. Salman's performance looks very natural and impressive.

It's not a typical edge of the seat thriller but is still very gripping which would keep you curious till the end.

The climax felt a bit rushed but overall worth a watch for thriller lovers.

10 / 10

An excellent psychological thriller

Chup is a mind-blowing suspense thriller by R Balki. A severely fair and spine-chilling spine chiller from R Balki that displays a splendid lead act from Dulquer Salmaan close by an unpretentious and critical cop-act by Sunny Deol !

The story by Balki moves in a lazy speed however has its own excellence and the tight screenplay guarantees that the crowd is stuck to the screens right from the word go!

The span block and the peak successions were first class and made important by tormenting music and exhibitions

The references to days of old exemplary 'Kagaz Ke Phool' by maestro Master Dutt was interlaced cunningly with the story and merits a unique notice.

Overall,Chup is a valid Balki make that merits a watch from the films for its novel narrative,stellar exhibitions and wonderful melodic score.

9 / 10

A Cinematic Masterpiece with Thrills!

I don't want to give spoilers but yes every scene in the movie is designed in class and one can be thrilled by seeing the way they have portrayed the murder and every detail has won the heart. The background score is the main protagonist I must say. This film will keep you intact till end.

Such "Story and Screenplay" is something which was missing for a very long time. Witnessing this superb masterpiece through public review was an extraordinary experience in itself. The whole cast and their roles are so magnificently written ..every killer has a story but this story is something which touched my heart! A Must-Watch Film.
