Rita (Geraldine Viswanathan) and Ravi (Karan Soni) initially prove the fact that opposites do not attract. She is a heavy-drinking, foul-mouthed moocher, while he is an uptight mama’s boy and a hopeless romantic. But now these opposites are forced to spend more than a little time together, as a date arranged by their mothers suddenly turns into a week-long quarantine. However, as the days progress, the two begrudgingly begin to form a bond. Utilising the brilliant comedic talent and natural chemistry of its leads (who also star together on the TV series Miracle Workers), together with a laugh-out-loud script co-written by director Roshan Sethi and Soni, 7 Days is a fresh and heartwarming romcom about finding a connection when you least expect it.
