Sunny’s next film, Chup: Revenge of the Artist, is billed as a psychopathic thriller. The film is said to be a tribute to the late filmmaker Guru Dutt and his 1959 classic Kaagaz Ke Phool. The film, starring Guru Dutt and Waheeda Rehman in the lead, received harsh reviews upon release and was only later resurrected as a classic.

Now, Sunny Deol has explained how critics have a right to say good or bad about movies and actors. “I think they’re doing their job, whatever they have to do, the way we act, and they have a right to say good and bad about us. And like I said earlier, when we go into this area, we get very sensitive and emotional and get angry about it and slowly you realize not to take it seriously,” Sunny told Pinkvilla.

While talking about whether movie reviews by critics have impacted a movie’s box office collections, Sunny said, “I don’t think it’s that important because I think the real (a) cinegoer doesn’t look at the review he sees the trailer and wants to go to the cinema and go out for that drunkenness, and that’s why a viewer watches a movie and not why someone else says it, and that can be measured from the trailer. That’s the beauty of cinema.”

Chup: Revenge of the Artist is an attempt to explore the trauma of an artist, who is judged after presenting a creation in public, according to filmmaker R Balki. In a recent interview, he told the PTI news agency: “For me, (it was) a question of sensitivity towards the artists. Guru Dutt sahab (sir) is one of the greatest artists who suffered from bad reviews. Now the same community, we all call Kaagaz Ke Phool a “masterpiece”. It is ironical. How hurt must that person have been at that time? »
