The makers released a teaser of the movie on Thursday, giving us a sneak peek into the five short films which were shot during the coronavirus pandemic.

Lastly, Nitya Mehra directorial Chaand Mubarak will see Ratna Pathak Shah sharing screen space with Shardul Bhardwaj.
The teaser hints that all the stories have one common thread running – the lockdown and janta curfew announced by PM Narendra Modi in March this year, and how it affected the lives of all the characters who belong to different walks of life and age groups.
Unpaused will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on December 18.
