Slightly weary of films set in Mumbai with its underworld, mixed with slums and chawls, dance bars, Ganpati or Dahi Handi processions and the film industry, Island City turned out be a very welcome, refreshing and a poignant tale of the city, which is built on islands and rampant reclamation.

Produced by NFDC and written and directed by Ruchika Oberoi, the film has three stories, all dealing with loneliness and monotony and the unbearable but inevitable grinding routines of urban lives that leave no room for emotions or their expression.
