Caught up with this movie lately... and tell you what ? Priyadarshan who gave us such wonders as Viraasat, Hera Pheri, Tera Ghar Mera Ghar and Garam Masala, seemed to have everything going right for him even when he made movies with lesser stars like Hungama and Hulchul or non stars like Malamaal Weekly . However with Chup Chup Ke he seems to have completely lost the magic.

The plot itself is mediocre – A small town bum Jeetu (Shahid Kapur) is a total failure at business and now owes lakhs of rupees to moneylenders. The brunt of his failure is heavily felt by his family consisting of a mother, father and a sister. His father (Anupam Kher) an honest school teacher is broken-up. Jeetu who had been engaged to his childhood sweetheart Pooja (Sushma Reddy) wants to break it off because of the situation at hand. He asks her to marry somebody else as he contemplate suicide as an end to his misery, as this would gain the family the huge insurance claims.

With suicide on his mind Jeetu jumps into the sea only to be pulled out by two fisherman Gundya (Paresh Rawal) and Bandya (Rajpal Yadav). They hospitalize him where he fortunately recovers, however he pretends to be a deaf and mute. Gundya who owes large amounts to a Gujarati businessman, Prabhat Singh Chauhan, mortgages Jeetu in lieu of the repayments. Thus Jeetu lands up as a house hand with Prabhat where he meets his niece Shruti (Kareena) who is also mute. Over a period of time the two fall in love and thereafter stars more twist and turns to the story than you can phantom.

Once again there is no magic, no chemistry between the lead pair of Shahid and Kareena, Priyadarshan who supposedly wanted to bank on this has failed. Shahid fails as a serious actor and is no great shake in light roles either.

Paresh Rawal and Rajpal Yadav besides Om Puri are the only three people in the movie who promise to tickle your funny bone. Neha Dhupia has been completely wasted in this film, devoid of character which would perform or glamour up the screen…she has been given a chatter box character which fails to do any good.

Himesh Rashammiya’s music – now I suppose we have more than enough of this guy. The music is mediocre least appealing. There is nothing great on the cinematography to write about.

One can definitely skip this one…unless you have a thing for the main leads…Shahid or Kareena.
