Overall Word of Mouth (Critics) - Mixed! 

1. India Today -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Chup's true beauty lies in the fact that it manages to deal with three distinct aspects or subplots rather competently. None of these tracks feel undercooked. Chup is a highly watchable and layered thriller that may 'silence' its critics, courtesy of its refreshing concept.

2. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 2/5
The mix of menace and romance starts and stays uneasy. This Dulquer Salmaan film, about dream-makers and those who destroy those dreams, is less satisfactory than it should have been.

3. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Dulquer Salmaan gives in his best to play a loner and a lover. One can see the actor’s struggle in juggling his complex character and he does a satisfactory job of it. Sunny Deol makes a smashing comeback. He plays the smart and dedicated investigating officer quite well with the required restraint.

4. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Balki has the framework for a terrific argument if only it wasn't so oblivious to publications and their politics, controlling the narrative and a thriving star rating system -- one that the film industry equally enables across triumphant posters when the odds are in their favour.

5. Gulf News -

Rating Score -> 3/5
‘Chup: Revenge of the Artist’ led by Dulquer Salmaan strikes hot and cold. R Balki shines the spotlight on a dark and twisted mind in his sobering thriller ‘Chup’

6. Khaleej Times -

Rating Score -> 3/5
A movie may be a director’s baby, but as much as it belongs to all the artists involved, it also belongs to the audience and that includes the critics. Chup may not be the right vehicle to silence critics but there are learnings to be taken away by both parties and chief among them being the fact that movie watching is a highly personal act and while everyone is entitled to their own opinions, maybe a little bit of kindness won’t hurt anyone.

7. News 18 -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Is Chup a watchable film? It is. It’s better put together than a lot of the films we see releasing today, and definitely strongly acted, but ends up so, so much less enjoyable than it deserved to be.

8. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
R. Balki’s direction is fair and one also gets to see glimpses of his brilliance at times but the fact remains that his choice of subject is so dull that the narration also loses impact. Amit Trivedi’s music and Swanand Kirkire’s lyrics are of a fair standard but the songs are not of the popular variety.

9. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Chup is a muddle but certainly not of monumental proportions. That it ventures into uncharted territory is undeniably commendable. But it needed something more to elevate itself above a mere idiosyncratic concept.

10. The Hindu -

Rating Score -> n/a
Chup is less of a whodunit and rather makes us wait for the motivation behind the gruesome murders. When the backstory doesn’t match the punishment meted out to critics, the climax is reduced to a charade. When the primary conceit doesn’t hold, the smart wordplay and topical observations start feeling superficial.

11. The Week -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Chup is a film which seems like an cinematic exercise undertaken by Bollywood which is intent on showing film critics their place. Shreya Dhanwanthary is as real as it gets. In the character of a film-loving journo who dares to put her life on the line to achieve her goal she is every bit likeable and nuanced. Dulquer Salmaan gives out an easy-going charm, but somehow fails to frighten us as a murderer, even as he carries the film on his shoulders.
