Island City


Dir. Ruchika Oberoi. 2015, 110 mins. In Hindi with English subtitles. DCP. With Vinay Pathak, Amruta Subhash, Tannishtha Chatterjee. A panoramic vision of life in modern Mumbai unfolds through three alternately absurd, funny, and tragic vignettes in this offbeat portmanteau film. From the story of a humorless office worker venturing outside his cubicle for a mandatory day of forced fun to a portrait of an unhappy family drawn into a fantasy soap opera world, Island City explores issues like gender roles and urban alienation with insight, humor, and a touch of the surreal.
