Chupchaap

By Bilal Hasan with 6.9

drama · Short Films

The short film opens with a beautifully poignant poem that will stay with you for a long time. It takes you into the life of a housewife who wants to get her poems published with the help of her husband who works in a publishing house.

For a film that starts on such a lovely note, it sure catches the viewer unaware with the dark turn the story suddenly takes. Above everything, Chupchaap is a film about how men who have the power to help women often force them into silence because of their own skewed ideologies. Thus, it compels the viewer to ponder upon the isolation of women in a world where they are not only deprived of a space of support and protection, but are often also blamed for misdeeds committed by others.
