"Chup is hands down THE BEST hindi film I’ve seen this year. It was thrilling, engaging and had a very unique concept which is also very much relevant in today’s time. #DulquerSalman absolutely steals the show with his power-packed performance. #ChupPublicFreeView. Kudos to the makers for the initiative of holding free public previews which shows that more than that of critics, it’s the audience’s feedback which matters the most. Everyone do not miss it at any cost! Go see it at the theaters and support good cinema,” read a thread.
