After much waiting, Island City finally has a release date in India and it will hit the theaters on September 2. Talking about the process, director Ruchika Oberoi said that the film has had a journey worldwide but they couldn’t be more excited for the film’s release in India. Collaborating with Drishyam Films, the makers of the film hope to reach out to audiences with substantial theatrical presence.
Directed by Ruchika Oberoi, Island City connects three stories- two black comedies and a tragic-comic tale of love that focuses on an ever-changing city in a time of uneasy transition. It also stars Amruta Subhash and Chandan Roy Sanyal in pivotal roles.
