Babu Rao, Raju and Shyam, are living happily after having risen from rags to riches. Still, money brings the joy of riches and with it the greed to make more money - and so, with a don as an unknowing investor, Raju initiates a new game.
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.

Please, help me, Father, or else I will have to get myself hanged.
[Father enters the house]
Yes, dear ones. We are not giving you a date. He is paying you the entire money.
[retuning with a rope]
Take this rope, tie it around your neck and hang yourself. Your elder sister is sitting in the house unwed. This house is the only thing left, which we had to mortgage because of you, and you want more help from me. With what will I help you? Go and drown somewhere so that we can save ...

The risk of making comedy is sometimes the director chases his tail and goes overboard. So how does Chup Chup Ke fare then?
Shahid - One word "mediocore".
Kareena - Having missed role of a life-time in Black, I expected her to fight back with stunning performance as a mute girl. "Expectations reduces joy", ah! - I am a wise man now.
BTW - the love track between the two appears force-fit. Is it missing on-screen chemistry?
Sunil Shetty - Makes entry just a couple of seconds before interval and is his usual self.
Neha Dhupia - Wonder how Priyadarshan convinced this glam doll to play second fiddle? Bait: Gets to sing the songs (since Kareena is mute). Nevertheless, meatier and better performance than Kareena.
Paresh Rawal seems undisputed king of comedy and his chemistry with Rajpal Yadav is great. Off-late the latter is being accused of substituting Johnny Lever. With Chup Chup Ke, Rajpal Yadav should silence his critics (how long? my guess is as good as yours!). Other Priyan regulars don't leave any lasting impression which include Om Puri and Asrani. Shakti Kapoor's love-track gets axed on the editing table. Anupam Kher, as usual does his part well as a principled father.
A couple of songs in the movie are good - thanks to the latest craze, Himesh Reshammiya. The downside - a la Hum Aapke Hain Koun!! The promo song "Shab-E-Firaq" should have been incorporated in the end titles.
Off-late the critics are have invented positive statements like "leave your mind at home and enjoy the comedy" which actually means "mindless comedy". Chup Chup Ke luckily escapes this category and scores above Phir Hera Pheri.
The comedy track is in right proportion and blends seamlessly with the backbone of the story.
Finally what was Sushma Reddy thinking when she signed the dotted line?
