One of the most awaited movies of the year Chup: The Revenge of the aritist hit the screen. The movie stars Dulquer Salmaan and Sunny Deol in lead roles. The movie is based on the story of serial killer who kills film critics who criticize the movie.
In the recent interview the director of film R Balki opens up about harsh review on his film Cheeni Kum Starred Amitabh Bachchan said, “In those days, there was one very influential reviewer… When I opened the paper, I saw I was thrashed to pieces, that it (film) was rubbish. Nonsense was written. First, I was so stunned that somebody can be so vicious. Why was somebody so angry with a happy film, I could not understand this entire thing. So I just went into actual depression.”
He further added, “There is decency involved, there is writing involved, if you don’t like it there is a way to say it. But it was a vicious attack. I just felt, how can he get away, I thought we should bump them off. Amit ji ( Amitabh Bachchan) started laughing and said, ‘You crazy fellow, what are you thinking, what are you on? What did you drink?’ and we left it at that.”
Chup: Revenge of The Artist tells the story of a disgruntled artiste, who turns into a serial killer after his work is singularly panned by the critics. The artiste in the film goes on a killing spree as he murders the critics and as a signature, leaves a 'star' mark on their bodies resembling the numbers of stars that critics often give to films or shows.
