A Look At The 2021 Tribeca Film Festival Premiere Of “7 Days” With Its Stars, Co-Writers & Director – The Hype Magazine
Published on June 12th, 2021 | by Darren Paltrowitz
In 7 Days, Ravi (played by Karan Soni) and Rita (played by Geraldine Viswanathan) are set up on a pre-arranged date by their old-fashioned Indian parents. The two seemingly have nothing in common, making for an afternoon that — while pleasant enough — could not be any more awkward. He is conservative and clearly-nervous, while she is doing her best to politely keep on smiling. But then the unthinkable happens: As the COVID outbreak intensifies, the shelter-in-place mandate is issued, forcing Ravi to spend the night at Rita’s place. Without giving too much away, 7 Days is a delightful, unique romantic-comedy that doubles as a top-notch showcase for its 2 lead actors.
7 Days had its world-premiere at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival at the Brooklyn Commons at Metro Tech on June 10, 2021. That same day, Karan Soni (who co-wrote the film), Geraldine Viswanathan, producer Mark Duplass and director/co-writer Roshan Sethi spoke with select members of the media via Zoom. I had the pleasure of asking questions to all 4 of these individuals, as embedded below.
