Storyline

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

Quotes

Pooja's Father: For years she's been stubborn about one thing, that she get married to you only.
Jeetu: Why are you cursing her? Since the time she has come to her sense, you have been hearing one thing, that we are made for each other.
Pooja's Father: I agree that we also wanted the same thing, but I didn't know that you would grow up to become such a useless person.

Crazy Credits

In the credits, the character name Rupa is listed twice, once near the top, and once at the very bottom. The one at the top should say Meenakshi Singh Chauhan, as that character's name is not listed. Next to Meenakshi Singh Chauhan should be the name of actress Neha Dhupia as she had played that character, but her name was wrongly switched with that of Rajpal Yadav's, putting his name in her character's spot, and her name in his character's spot.

Not such a good movie by Priyadarshan
27 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I have loved Hera Pheri, Hungama and Hulchul by Priyadarshan because they had the humor that could make me laugh a lot. The jokes in these three movies weren't repetitive and the movie didn't dull down any moment. When I saw Chup Chup Ke with my parents, I kept laughing just because my father was howling in laughter and I fond the movie funny. But when I saw the movie alone again, I did not find it funny at all.

Paresh Rawal got too repetitive in his manners and behavior. Shahid was an epitome of over acting. He looked weird rather than humorous playing deaf and dumb. Rajpal Yadav kept playing his usual role as a side kick who is made to do a lot of silly acts. I liked Kareena's acting as it was natural and, thank god, she did not talk throughout the movie. While the Gujarati family, which had Om Puri and a couple of hundreds of people, really addled my mind. I don't think we have wrestlers in Gujarat who keep fighting. Its normally done in the North. And instead of playing Garbo, the family celebrates singing Hindi songs and dancing as if they are Punjabis. I mean, in the beginning, most of the members of the family are shown as if they do not know any Hindi, and in the second part, all are shown singing in Hindi.

The second half of the movie was terribly dragging as members of the family kept weeping all the time. The film had too many characters and so, it became a complete mess.

Overall, it is a bad movie. So I give it a 4 out of 10.
