7 Days (2021) Tribeca 2021

While 7 DAYS was on my Tribeca dance card, all their films are, I was not expecting to see it until a later point in putting my coverage together. It arrived in my inbox marked as another film. Knowing I was going to see it anyway I put it on and found I was utterly charmed

Ravi (Karan Soni) and Rita (Geraldine Viswanathan) are set up on a date by their parents. It kind of goes okay but circumstances of the covid lockdown  force Ravi to spend the night. That stretches into a week. What was a mismatched pairing turns into something else.

This is a sweet little romance. Buoyed by the performances of two great actors this is a film that becomes a romance where the audience falls for the two characters on screen just as hard as the couple at the center. To be certain that the film hits some of the cliched notes you find in a  mismatched romance, and yes Krn Soni's neurotic Ravi can be a bit much, but it really doesn't matter because the pair are so likable, so much a reflection of how we view ourselves. that we kind of forgive any small flaw.

I unexpectedly and unashamedly loved this film. I loved it so much that I really wish I had a significant other to share it with.

7 DAYS is recommended, and just may be the date film that just may seal the deal on your romance.
