Island City (2016)

A collection of three comic-dramatic stories set in Mumbai. The first is about a diligent office worker who wins the office ‘Fun Committee Award’, which entitles him to a whole day full of fun. He is most reluctant to leave the safety of his cubicle but he has to. Prescribed fun modules have to be completed and non-compliance is not an option. After he starts his journey into his forced fun day, his package gets exchanged with a terrorist, who was given the instructions to kill everyone in the mall! But Vinay Pathak received those instructions and in the process kills everyone in his office. The second story begins with a domineering head-of-the-family, Anil, who is on life support. Seeking some relief, his family decides to buy a TV, which Anil had banned. Now every night the family plugs into a popular soap whose hero, Purshottam, is a man ideal in every way and they are smitten. Then suddenly, comes the news that they will have to choose whether Anil lives or dies, as he is on life support. His family chose to let him go and the end scene of this story is all the family members, except Anil watching their idol Purshottam. The third one centers on Aarti whose repetitive existence is slowly making her more and more mechanical and numb. Deep inside ferments a disconnect and unease that she is unable to articulate to anyone. Then one day there arrives a most intimate letter and everything changes…
