Unpaused (2020) Review: Refreshing, Life-Affirming Anthology

Unpaused amazon prime

Each story in Unpaused is beautifully designed, minimal and effective in rendition, affirming a singular, universal truth about life with sensitivity and refreshing insights.

A hypochondriac with a voice bot as a companion falls in love with a virus warrior. Dialectics at work.

A woman on the verge of suicide decides to stand up for women preyed on by her celebrity journo husband.

A cantankerous senior woman bonds with her young neighbour in wake of a rat invasion in the latter’s home and teaches her important life lessons.

A migrant worker gets caught in the lockdown and finds refuge in a sample flat of an under construction building, living the good life until…

A reclusive, upscale, single woman who survives on canned food forms an unlikely bond with a Muslim auto driver and gives him a gift.

These five stories rise from the depths of the lockdown rabbit hole and go on to affirm life. Life that remains unputdownable and unpaused.

Each story is beautifully designed, minimal and effective in rendition, affirming a singular, universal truth about life with sensitivity and refreshing insights. I like all of them for the sheer quality and economy of their unfolding. Perhaps the weakest is Apartment because it is predictable and a tad forced but it does keep you engaged.

For me, Gulshan Devaiah, Lillete Dubey, Ratna Pathak Shah shine like bright stars in this lockdown anthology which is well composed by a medley of directors.
