THE UNSOUND is a classic case of a movie looking good on paper but making a mess on screen.
A good story by writer/director Alok Shrivastava gets random casting and an amateur treatment. Even the camera angles used are amateurish. A majority of the shots are close-ups of the four prominent characters. There's even a low camera shot of a visiting card being exchanged which makes it look more eerie than formal.
The story is about Dev Oberoi (Shadab Khan) who suffers from multiple organic psychotic disorder. Apparently, we learn that it's a condition that makes his behavior extremely unpredictable and at times, even violent.
His wife separates from him, taking along with her their five-year-old daughter. She also refuses maintenance. Immediately, even before she can reach home, he has fallen in love with a hostess from the restaurant they just had lunch at. The hostess is madly in love with him.
Dev has a doctor friend, who has introduced him to another female doctor friend of his who treats Dev for free.
So the film is all about Dev.
With this film, the male lead has gotten himself a rocking acting demo video.
What about the viewers? I don't think anyone cares about that!
