Finally, the makers have dropped the trailer of Chup: Revenge Of The Artist, starring Dulquer Salmaan, Sunny Deol, Pooja Bhatt, and Shreya Dhanwanthary. Helmed by R Balki, the romantic psychological thriller is a homage to legendary filmmaker Guru Dutt and his 1959 classic movie Kaagaz Ke Phool.
The trailer opens with Sunny Deol, who plays the role of a cop, saying, “Sir, we have got a new kind of serial killer who is giving stars to people who give star ratings. A critic’s critic.” In the film, he is on a mission to track down a serial killer who carves stars (gives rating) on the forehead of victims’ bodies.
Next in the trailer, we see moments of romance between Dulquer Salmaan and Shreya Dhanwanthary, interspersed with scenes of gruesome murders. Towards the end of the trailer, Dulquer can be heard talking about Guru Dutt’s movie Kaagaz Ke Phool, “Unki sabse personal aur best film ko critics ne trash kar diya.
Depressed hokar unhone koi film hi nahi banayi. (His best and most personal film was trashed by the critics. He got depressed and didn’t make the films after that.” Then, the song Yeh Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye Toh from the movie Kaagaz Ke Phool starts playing in the background, and scenes of Sunny Deol searching for the killer are shown.
Dulquer Salmaan also shared the trailer on his Instagram handle and captioned it as “Are y’all ready for this ?”. Check out the post below.
Revenge Of The Artist is co-produced by Pranab Kapadia and Anirudh Sharma. It is slated to release on September 23.
