Set and filmed in the times of covid-19 lockdown. An anthology that brings together 5 unique creators of hindi cinema featuring stories of love, new begnnings, second chances and a hope.
Anthologies can be erratic in tone and overall storytelling. When you have multiple directors calling the shots on multiple sets of actors in standalone stories, it is hard to find cohesion of quality. The parts that make up the entirety are often never consistently good or bad. Unpaused, with five stories that attempt to define the mood of urban India during lockdown, suffers from that problem. The film starts off on a high note, hits a slump immediately after that, and somehow manages to recover in the stories that follow.
