I want to create the following effect.
I would like to know if this effect is possible with Unity 3d or should we get our hands dirty by getting into OpenGL...
Any comments/suggestions/help would be really appreciated...

Yes, you can do that in Unity. The only slightly tricky part is getting the text on a cylindrical surface. A couple different ways:
1) Use 3D text, one object for each letter, and rotate as appropriate. See this Unity web game for an example...game over has a line of text in a cylinder shape. Also the beginning has lines of text rotating around a cylinder.
2) Render the text to a texture and use that on the glass cylinder appropriately. (Unity Pro only.)
