The imperative form of the verb молчать ‘be silent’ is молчи (sg.) / молчите (pl.).
You can use this form, but more commonly, it is used with a prefix:
замолчи(те) — literally: ‘start being silent’, or
помолчи(те) — literally: ‘be silent for a while’.
You can also use the infinitive form without prefixes: молчать!
 
All these phrases are quite direct requests—neither polite nor too rude.
