Winner of FEDORA award for the Best Debut Director, Venice Film Festival 2015, Island City is a collection of three comic-dramatic stories set in Mumbai, India.

    Not made for masses but it is a mass connected movie…worth watching…..

    This is the first movie of Ruchika Oberoi and already he has been
    awarded some prizes. One of them is 72nd Venice International Film
    Festival,in that ceremony Ruchika Oberoi won the FEDORA prize for the
    Best Young Director. It is released many festivals in 2015 but in India
    it is released 2nd September 2016. it is very clear that the movie is
    not for the masses and the targeted audiences are only the classes.
    Ruchika Oberoi is a debutant director by this movie and the movie is
    produced by NFDC India. It is a movie of three different stories and
    all are from the island city ”Mumbai”. The theme and the structure are
    a little bit old but quite enjoyable.

    It is a very slow movie from up to bottom and strictly not for the
    masses. There are three different stories, ”Fun Committee”, ”The Ghost
    in the Machine”, and ”Contact”. The second story in this movie ”The
    Ghost in the Machine” is the most enjoyable story. It is the story of
    Sarita who is a housewife and her husband is in a coma. It is a very
    true but awkward realization that without his husband Mr. Joshi her and
    her family’s life will be more delightful. The other two stories are
    not so viable and you can easily skip this. These two stories are very
    common and there is nothing new in that two stories.

    Performance wise Vinay Pathak has done a very good job and Tannishtha
    Chatterjee has done also a fair job for their role. The direction of
    the movie is OK but nothing to shout about. background score is good
    but could have been better.

    It is true that it is a movie of mass life and common people in Mumbai
    city but these types movie are not very appealing for the mass people
    and regular movie goers. It is made for only rewards and prizes but if
    you have a chance to watch this, You can try.

    Movie which made Indian Cinema proud of its intellectual vitality

    The movie has a deep philosophical undertone to it.The movie has the
    courage to ask the audience in the form of stories the deep questions
    of life.

    All the three stories challenged the audience to inquire about the
    nature of reality and its relationship with human senses and brain.
    Some deep question were : What makes us enjoy our life? What makes us
    sad? Can someone enjoy forced fun? Can TV serial story, an imaginary
    story affect a real story of life. Is love true?

    The acting is superb.The background music is very good.The editing and
    photography is superb.
