Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5 | 5/10
A middling anthology. Though the story of a woman who lives in a posh flat and a roza-breaking Muslim auto-driver has a predictable arc, starting off with irritation and ending with affection, both Ratna Pathak Shah and Shardul Bhardwaj make us watch ... Full Review

123 Telugu: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Unpaused is an anthology film that has a backdrop of COVID lockdown but does not impress you much. The needed emotions are missing and stories feel incomplete. Except for Abhishek Banerjee and Ratna Pathak Shah’s short stories, this film has nothing great to offer as the other stories are rushed and fail in execution ... Full Review

Mashable: 5/5 | 10/10
It excellently manages to stand out from all the content that’s capitalising on the pandemic by not only accurately showing the health issues, both mental and physical, that have taken center stage but also by generating a sense of hope in a way that’s non-melodramatic and inspirational ... Full Review
