Published: 08th December 2020

Amazon Prime Video has dropped the trailer of Unpaused, an anthology of five Hindi short films filmed during pandemic. Each story revolves around the theme of new ‘beginnings’ and is helmed by a noted Bollywood director. 

The five shorts are - 

-Glitch directed by Raj & DK and starring Gulshan Devaiah and Saiyami Kher 

In these times when people fear human contact, a hypochondriac man meets a delightfully strange girl on a blind date, which turns out to be far more meaningful than he anticipated.

-Apartment directed by Nikkhil Advani and starring Richa Chadha, Sumeet Vyas, and Ishwak Singh

When the owner of a successful online news magazine learns of her husband’s sexual indiscretions, she is left shocked and unable to come to terms with it. Hopeless, she spirals into a dark maze of self-blame and attempts to end her own life. Enter a ray of hope in the guise of a pesky intruder. 

-Rat – A – Tat directed by Tannishtha Chatterjee  and starring featuring Rinku Rajguru and Lillete Dubey

Two women. Four decades apart— one who chose to be alone and the other who is alone because of circumstances, confront loneliness and form an unlikely friendship during lockdown which brings them hope and a new beginning.

-Vishaanu directed by Avinash Arun and starring Abhishek Banerjee and Geetika Vidya Ohlyan

During the lockdown, a young migrant family after being thrown out of their rented house, for not being able to pay the rent, decides to illegally sneak into a lavish sample flat - that is in the same building in which they were working as construction workers. This time, for them, is a dream lived for a momentary period as well as a curse to cope up with their stark reality.

-Chaand Mubarak directed by Nitya Mehra and starring Ratna Pathak Shah and Shardul Bharadwaj

An affluent middle-aged single woman is forced to seek help of a young rickshaw driver to run some errands during Mumbai's lockdown. The woman is stubborn & class conscious and resents the driver’s orthodox views on women. As these two strangers from opposite sides of the track spend three days together, they slowly start peeling away their defenses and form an unlikely friendship based on newfound respect and understanding, realizing they aren’t so different after all.

Unpaused premieres on December 18 on Amazon Prime Video.
