A young man named Jeetu finds himself in debt with his father receiving harassing visits from money-lenders. Although his father is scolded daily for his non-progress in their debts, his mother and his fiancée Pooja believe he can successfully fulfill his task and live happily, but burdened with high debt, Jeetu sees suicide as his only way out of the situation (insurance money for the family). Unfortunately for him, taking a plunge off a dock into a placid ocean doesn't kill him. He awakens in a boat with two very interesting characters, Gundya and his servant Bundya. In the cost of putting Jeetu in a hospital and saving his life, Gundya and Bundya believe Jeetu owes them a debt. Already in much debt , Jeetu decides to play off that he is deaf and mute. He then finds himself mortgaged to a wealthy man, Prabhart Singh in return for Gundya's confiscated boat and thus ends up as a servant boy at a mansion in Kolkata. It is here where he meets Prabhart's beautiful daughter Meenakshi and ... Written by Teri Maa

The good news is that Kareena Kapoor doesn't talk in this film. The bad news is that everyone else does…
11 June 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The good news is that Kareena Kapoor doesn't talk in this film The bad news is that everyone else does… the problem is that they don't just talk but shout, scream, shriek, screech and yell.

Chup Chup Ke continues Priyadarshan's stint with loud comedies. The good news is that this Priyadarshani film has a story to narrate (unlike Garam Masala). The bad news is that this time again the story is a Hindi adaptation of a Malayalam film named Punjabi House (unlike Malamaal Weekly that was his only original Hindi attempt)

However the story is interesting enough. Jeetu (Shahid Kapoor) is drenched in debts that he is unable to payback. So he attempts suicide by jumping in the sea only to be caught in the net of fisherman Bandya (Rajpal Yadav). Bandya's master Gundya (Paresh Rawal) in turn has taken heavy loans from Prabhat Singh Chauhan (Om Puri). As a loan security, Gundya keeps Jeetu as a deposit at Chauhan's house, who fakes to be a mute and deaf guy. Chauhan's niece Shruti (Kareena Kapoor) who is actually mute falls for Jeetu. Confusion seeps in the story when Jeetu's ex-fiancé Pooja (Sushma Reddy) comes into picture.

The good news is that Priyadarshan's brand of humor is not as bland or slapstick as David Dhawan's recent films. The bad news is that it's not as credible or tongue-in-cheek as a Hrishikesh Mukherjee or a Basu Chatterjee film, either.

The movie starts with a bang getting straight to the point. The director doesn't waste time in establishment of the characters. Right from the first scene, the story of the film keeps moving ahead, thereby keeping your interest alive. Priyadarshan doesn't experiment with the treatment of humor though, going on with his trademark style of comedy. The characters play out loud and to the gallery. Another problem with the Priyadarshan brand of comedy is that he stretches the humor in a scene a bit too much and doesn't know where to stop, thereby making it repetitive and monotonous at times. However thanks to some well-written scenes and Neeraj Vora's dependable funny one-liners that range from the witty to the corny ones, the film does succeed in making you laugh.

One more bone of contention is that the genre of the film is not just focused at being a comedy. That lasts for the first two hours after which the genre shifts towards drama. After a good dose of laughter in the first half, you don't feel like changing moods with the subsequent on screen emotional outbursts. And while Priyadarshan handles the comic portions of the film in a larger-than-life manner, his treatment of emotions is very much natural. (Not many might remember Priyadarshan as the director of touching emotional films like Gardish, Virasat and Sazae Kala Paani much before he molded himself as a comedy specialist). Conversely, how one wishes it were just the opposite in this film i.e. the comedy to be more natural while one could overlook the heavier side with some passable artificial emotions.

The fluctuating genres very much remind of Priyadarshan's Hulchul that too turned intense in the last one hour. Moreover the family setting and characterizations of Suniel Shetty and Kareena Kapoor seems to be directly derived from Hulchul.

Priyadarshan has a standard team of actors like Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, Om Puri, Asrani, Manoj Joshi and Suniel Shetty with whom he extracts fine work. Paresh Rawal is getting repetitive though you love to see him repeat the act. From being a serious actor, Om Puri has already made a transition into the comedy arena with élan. Rajpal Yadav yet again goes over the top, but somehow in this film, this actor steals the show amongst others thanks to the best scenes and lines that he gets. His timing and expressions add to the effect.

Like his team of actors, Priyadarshan also has a standard team of technicians in his film like cinematographer Tirru and art director Sabu Cyril. Sabu repeats the typical pillars-in-the-garden set design for the song sequences. The white color in costume designs is consistently maintained throughout the film to impart a pure look to the frames.

The good news is that Himesh Reshammiya composes the music of this film. The bad news (for some) is that he even sings some of the tracks here.

Amongst other actors, Shahid is quite efficient. Kareena looks gorgeous and since she doesn't have to mouth a single line in the entire film (not even in a dream sequence), you are saved by her otherwise over-expressive dialogue delivery skills. In fact Neha Dhupia gets more scope and she makes the best use of it. Sushma Reddy is restricted only to some 4-5 scenes. Suniel Shetty is getting typecast in these kinds of roles playing the aggressive and protective brother. Soon he might become a substitute for Jackie Shroff.

Overall, Chup Chup Ke isn't as silent as the title suggests. However despite it's loose (or loud) ends, it still manages to be a good family entertainer.
