Director R. Balki has given Hindi cinema some out-of-the-course tales to savour. Following atypical stories like ‘Cheeni Kum’, ‘Paa’, ‘Padman’ and others, the unconventional director is back with yet another of his unusual stories with ‘Chup: Revenge of the Artist’.
The psychological thriller is R. Balki’s debut in the genre of blood and kills. It takes the legendary Guru Dutt's last film ‘Kagaaz Ke Phool’ as a reference and takes a sensitive stance to depict the pain of an artist who suffers from wrongful criticism.
After the trailer of the film and the retro vibe surrounding the suspense thriller, Balki released the first song of the psychological thriller ‘Gaya Gaya Gaya’ with a twist of romance and thrill. While the music and the duo – Dulqer Salmaan and Shreya Dhanvantary – are seen giving a romantic layering to the song, the recurring flashes of the murder mysteries during the video keep the thrilling vibe alive.

The song comes from the incredible direction of music director Amit Trivedi and is woven by lyricist Swanand Kirkire.
Balki said: “Amit Trivedi has done a fabulous job. Music score becomes important for any film and most importantly its connection to the film. ‘Chup’ is an unusual fusion of romance and thrill, and its music had to involve the two. 'Gaya Gaya Gaya' aptly includes the enigmatic elements of the film and I am happy with the flow of it.
“The entire score is mesmerising and we are looking forward to releasing them all soon."
The composition is recorded in the melodious voices of Rupali Moghe and Shashwat Singh, and perfectly complements the essence of the mentally stimulating movie.
Trivedi notes: "‘Chup’ is a versatile film and it comes from a one-of-a-kind storyline. We had to compose something that could fall in line with the film's essence and we found 'Gaya Gaya Gaya'.
“We necessarily focused to keep the romantic element of the song alive without losing on the film's enigmatic hint in it. The song is incredibly written by Swanand Kirkire and sung by two talented singers. The entire music score of the film is soon to release and we definitely look forward to it."
