Chup Chup Ke is a remake of Punjabi House. To be honest, you expect a lot from director Priyadarshan, but the film belies your expectations. It is like a ship with a hole.

Jeetu is engaged to Pooja (Sushma Reddy). He is tragically unlucky in every moneymaking enterprise he ventures into. Overburdened by debts, scorned at by his father-in-law, Jeetu decides to commit suicide so that his father (Anupam Kher) can settle the debts with the insurance money.

But Jeetu fails even in this endeavor and is fished out of the sea by two quirky fishermen Bandya (Rajpal Yadav) and Gundya (Paresh Rawal), who mistake him to be a rich guy after finding a slip in his pocket. Jeetu conveniently pretends that he is mute and deaf.

Gundya decides to use Jeetu and Bandya to settle his old debt to a Gujarati businessman. He sends the two to do household chores in the house of Prabhat Singh (Om Puri).

In this household, while Bandya goes about the daily chores, Jeetu develops a rapport with Prabhat Singh’s niece Shruti (Kareena Kapoor) and her cousin Meenakshi (Neha Dhupia).

When compared to the director's previous accomplishments, Chup Chup Ke pales on both the levels – script and music. The story of the film is as old as the hills and the screenplay does precious little to elevate the situation.The first half of Chup Chup Ke has its share of light sequences, which are thoroughly enjoyable. The Rajpal-Shahid-Paresh track is breezy, while the ' kusti' scene is simply hilarious. The interval point holds a lot of promise, but the post-interval portions do not live up to the expectations.

Director Priyadarshan has opted for a script that is monotonous and which embarks on a lot of cinematic liberties. Even the climax does wee little to perk up matters

Himesh's musical score is also a downer. The tunes are cyclical and identifiable, although it must be said that the picturisation of the songs is commendable. Yet, the placement of songs towards the second half is improper, for they look forced in the goings-on.

Director Priyadarshan leaves an impression in a couple of sequences, not entirety. A fraction of the flick does have the by-now-famous stamp of the accomplished director, but after a point, the weak plot overpowers the director completely.

Neeraj Vora's comedy punches are brilliant. Cinematography is passable.

Shahid goes through his role with earnestness. Karina does her part with fervour.Neha has a brief role, but he registers a strong impact. Paresh is as usual. Rajpal Yadav irritates.

On the whole, Chup Chup Ke has a dull script, which will limit its prospects significantly. It will have a bumpy journey at the box-office.
