The R. Balki-directed film will be available on OTT two months after its theatrical release.
R. Balki's psychological crime thriller Chup: Revenge of the Artist is all set for its OTT release. Two months after its theatrical release, the film is all set to stream on ZEE5 starting November 25, 2022. The movie is produced by Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, Jayantilal Gada, Gauri Shinde, and Anil Naidu. Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, and Shreya Dhanwanthary are the movie's lead actors, with Pooja Bhatt and Saranya Ponvannan playing supporting roles.
Talking about the plot of the movie, film critics who provide dishonest or prejudiced evaluations of movies are being brutally murdered by an enigmatic serial killer who is on the run in Mumbai. Arvind Mathur, the Mumbai inspector general, is looking into the matter. The investigation also involves a florist named Danny, a reporter covering entertainment named Nila Menon, and a criminal psychologist named Dr. Zenobia Shroff.
Without giving too much away, Sunny Deol urged the audience to watch the film because it will leave them in awe of the deception and suspense. He said that portraying the character of IG Arvind Mathur was a tremendous experience and was more like solving a jigsaw puzzle.
Dulquer Salmaan said that the narrative delves into every layer of a criminal's mind, challenging the viewers' psyche and morality in the process. He shared that stepping into the shoes of a twisted serial killer like Danny had been the most experimental role to date. Identifying with someone who wreaks havoc across the city murdering critics, the mere thought is frightening. Chup: Revenge of the Artist is not one's typical detective drama and relentless and heart stopping thriller will amp.
According to Shreya Dhanwanthary, Chup: Revenge of the Artist is a love story of cinema. A love story of two people who find each other in a world of blood and gore, and a love story with Guru Dutt. She also said it's a love story about finding art in murder. The rousing turn of events and the twists and turns will keep one begging for the climax.
Guru Dutt, whose best work, Kaagaz Ke Phool, was harshly criticised, the film failed, and he didn't make a film after that, is at the top of the list of sensitive artists, according to the director, R Balki. While tearing art apart, few think about the sensitivity of the artist. Chup is a story that looks at the insensitivity toward an artist's work as well as the flaw in the artist's reaction to it.
