Unnchai depicts the story of friendship, expectations, and acceptance. The four friends- Amit Srivastav i.e. Amitabh Bachchan, Om Sharma i.e Anupam Kher, Javed Siddique i.e. Boman Irani, Bhupen Bora i.e Danny Denzongpa are all in their 70s and 80s
They share a close relationship. Suddenly Bhupen dies and the remaining three gets distorted and disappointed. Then these three friends decide to fulfill Bhupen's wish. Before his death, Bhupen wished to climb the base camp of Mt Everest with all his friends
Despite their old age and health issues, they venture to reach the base camp of Mt Everest. Shraddha i.e Parineeti Chopra, their trekking instructor guides them to reach their destination.This is what constitutes the main plot of the story but there are several layers of individual backstories in the movie.
The strength of this movie lies in its unique and out-of-the-box storyline. Both its story and screenplay are marvelous. In the Second half of the movie each back story gets unwrapped, layers get unfolded, and as a result, the audience gets delighted
Although the trekking portion of the movie covers a large portion, the audience never gets bored or exasperated. The drama in the Second half of the movie is outstanding. Abhishek Dixit's dialogues bear witness to his craftsmanship
