Unpaused Review: Anthology Of Lockdown Stories Is Highly Recommended
Saibal Chatterjee from NDTV.com writes, "As a freewheeling rumination on loneliness, distress and lingering hope, Unpaused, buoyed by a slew of terrific performances, is a pertinent commentary on a pandemic and its depredations. Significantly, at least three of the shorts (Chand Mubarak, Rat-a-Tat and Vishaanu) have the potential to resonate beyond the turmoil unleashed by a deadly virus and the face masks, sanitizers and disinfectants."
Unpaused Review: Hope, survival & aspirations amidst Covid 19, don't miss this heartachingly good anthology
Sanjana Jadhav from Pinkvilla.com says, "In the last few months, the OTT platform has seen a massive rise in a variety of content. However, there's nothing on the streaming platforms like Unpaused right now. A story of survival that humans have lived through, Unpaused pays a great tribute to that spirit and makes us even more aware of our lockdown-induced learnings. Even though all shorts may not be as good as the next one, Unpaused must make it to your watchlist."
Unpaused review: A middling anthology
Shubhra Gupta from The Indian Express writes, "For the past several months, streaming platforms have been awash with post-Covid material dealing with lockdown-related themes of isolation, loneliness, resilience. In its five-part anthology, Unpaused mixes all of the above with news that has made headlines in this terrible virus-laden year, with average results."
‘Unpaused’ review: Amazon Prime Video anthology film finds the rainbow in the Covid-19 storm
Nandini Ramnath from Scroll.in says, "Unpaused has a greater awareness of the horrors that have come in the wake of Covid-19 in India, but only just. The brief this time too is to be upbeat, comforting, apolitical and family-friendly (and therefore asexual). Only one of the directors sticks with the dark clouds rather than to reach for the rainbow."
