7 DAYS Wins At The Indie Spirit Awards


7 Days wins an Independent Spirit Award for best First Feature.“With a strong dedication to the independent community, Cinedigm is thrilled that the film has been recognized at the Independent Spirit Awards and by Film Independent,” said Chris McGurk, Chairman & CEO at Cinedigm. “From the moment we saw 7 Days we knew it was something special. Karan [Soni] and Geraldine [Viswanathan] brought this undeniable chemistry to their roles, while the film resonates across cultures and generations. We can’t wait for audiences everywhere to experience the film together this month in theaters.”

7 Days synopsis: Set up on a pre-arranged date by their old-fashioned Indian parents, Ravi (Karan Soni) and Rita (Geraldine Viswanathan) seemingly have nothing in common, making for an afternoon that, while pleasant enough, couldn’t be any more awkward. He’s conservative and clearly nervous, while she’s doing her best to politely keep on smiling. But then circumstances conspire and force Ravi to spend the night at Rita’s place. Before long, he sees that she’s not the straight-laced girl she initially pretended to be—for starters, she’s quick to pound a beer for breakfast. As their time stuck together stretches towards a full week, though, Ravi and Rita develop an unlikely bond, and in the face of a heartbreaking turn of events, that bond grows into something stronger. 7 Days is a delightful rom-com that doubles as a showcase for its two stars, Soni and Viswanathan, both of whom carry this two-hander with natural charm and easygoing chemistry, and a culturally specific spin on its genre’s familiar tropes. Optimistic and full of heart, director/co-writer Roshan Sethi’s debut captures love in the time of isolation and will leave you on a feel-good high.

The film opens in theaters March 25th
