Island City - Movie Reviews

But fact is, this film is not meant for everyone. You need to have an appetite for Isaac Asimov kind of sci-fi coupled with a taste for fine cinema. Else you’ll find yourself a little lost in the detailed and very dystopian world of this film. It’s a real mind bender but also not for the average joe.

This one deserves to be watched for its riveting take on love, longing and loneliness
The Times of India
Three stories, tenuously tied in a presentation that is so amateurish, you wonder why NFDC would back this film school type story-telling. Thankfully one story stands alone and puts a smile on your face. This should have been released on YouTube.

Sara Arjun’s charm is eclipsed by bizarre messaging
Island City is an artistically woven and absurdly intertwined narrative that gives you a simulated feel of life in Mumbai. Wrapped with cynicism, fatalism and moral ambiguity, the film is a satirical take on how people lead their lives in this claustrophobic city
Sify
Island City' has a very modern theme on how automation has taken control of humanity in a big city like Mumbai
PipingHotViews
Island City should not be missed
REDIFF
Watch it for some gritty stories narrated very realistically by all actors, especially the three leads
BookMyShow
Hapless and weak, rather than strong and optimistic

Thankfully one story stands alone and puts a smile on your face. This should have been released on YouTube.
Now Running
While this core idea is strong, the representation of it and the cinematic tonality is inconsistent
