Storyline

Ravi's lives his life by the pie-chart his mother defines for him - 60% education and only 0.2% - 2.9 minutes each day for fun! When Ravi and his friends, Hamid and Onka,chance upon the camera of a visiting tourist, they see their dreams come true where they can make a Bollywood film and meet the famous actress, Ms.Ray. The path to making a film is riddled with problems: they only have 7 days to return the camera and their final exams begin in 7 days! The 7 days mark a comical journey where Ravi sets out to make a Bollywood film with his schoolmates, writes a ransom note, casts a heroine in his film, uses creative ways to keep his friends, Hamid and Onka involved in his project during the ever-stressful exam season and keeps his mother thinking that all his hard work was towards his final exams!

Hilarious but thoughtful
27 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Making you laugh and think all the same time, "7 days in slow motion" is a must-see for all Indian families and independent film-lovers.

Taking a commonplace but seldom addressed topic of academic pressure on kids in middle-class India, the film presents an extremely thoughtful and nuanced portrayal of the issues.

Strong acting by Rajeshwari and the lead child actors, especially the kids who plays Onka, add to a powerful bag of goods.

Music is much better than recently seen out of Bollywood and 2 of the songs, one by Kunal Ganjawala and the other by Kailash Kher, are haunting and will have staying power.
