Director R Balki previously shared in an interview how he had felt when he read the first review of his 2007 feature film debut Cheeni Kum. He recalled a top critic from the time the film was vandalized, sending him into a “deep depression”, despite the film being otherwise well received and friends telling him that one person’s opinion didn’t matter. “It mattered to me and somehow that thought hit me that how come you? [the critic] can say what you want, and get away and I’m accountable to you, but you’re not accountable to me,” Balki said in a conversation with Variety. “I found that unfairness in the whole relationship depressing at first and then very fascinating. ”
The director, who made Paa (2009) with Amitabh Bachchan and The Pad Man (2018), is now working on Chup, a thriller in which a serial killer brutally murders Bollywood film critics and carves star ratings on their foreheads.
Chup is co-written by Balki, Rishi Virmani (“Ki & Ka”) and film critic Raja Sen, who is known for his often harsh reviews of Bollywood films. Before starting the film, Balki, who hadn’t read any reviews of his work after that first review, went back and read them all to “drive all those demons out of my head.”
Balki, Variety added, led Sen to gain some perspective and balance from a critic’s point of view, rather than being a one-sided conversation, and also to understand the difficulties and frustrations critics experience.
“I realized after I called Raja that he destroyed me the most, so it was beautiful to sit with the person you really want to kill,” said Balki, who now has a “deep bond” with Sen and a “fascinating friendship” that grew during the film.
Chup also pays tribute to Indian author Guru Dutt, who was known for Pyaasa (1957) and Kaagaz Ke Phool (1959). The commercial failure of the latter, produced, directed and starring Dutt, never saw him officially direct a film again and he was finally found dead in 1964, at the age of 39.
