Samir Tewari said “Why do people outgrow each other? Why do some marriages fall apart, While others continue to stay rock solid? Is it because somewhere some couples get disillusioned with each other? Whereas some couples work hard to keep the interest level alive? Level 13 takes a detached yet wry look at two marriages. One, that’s held together by love and respect. And one, that’s held together by the comfort of familiarity that exists between two individuals who know each other inside out but tolerate each other only because they are too tired to separate. As the film progresses, we realise that this loveless marriage of convenience is probably stronger than the one based on love as there are no expectations here. The marriage based on love is frail and fragile and destroying it takes just one brief moment of indiscretion. As a sub text, Level 13 also deals with mobile addiction. And how the mobile that has become an emotional crutch for some people, while also ending up as the bane of modern relationships”

Annup Sonii said “What attracted me towards Level 13 was its story – it was simple and every day, yet intense and funny in an uncanny way. It had an interesting take on marriage, relationships, human behavior and boredom. Also my character was very different from what I have ever done. My director Samir Tewari had also co-written the script so he exactly knew how he wanted to project each character”
Sandhya Mridul said “I found the scenario very real & possible and actually I’ve seen this happen once long ago .. I have always wondered what it would be like & was intrigued to put myself in that situation and see it what I feel as the character. Actors are lucky we can be anyone. Also I’m not a phone addict or ever plan to become one!! My phone is off 90% of the time. And silent. It was fun however to play someone whose only escape in life was the phone. I see people like that all the time. It sad, but it’s the sign of our times that nobody looks up anymore. So I’m happy to make the darn statement. Get off the phone. Live.
Rajev Paul said “When I was offered Level 13 what I liked about the story was how a seemingly casual evening between colleagues and friends takes a turn and changes the lives of people involved forever. My character Aakash, had layers which you’d would want to see in every man and when an unforeseen situation arises we see how he reacts to it. In short, even though the film is less than 15 minutes, it’s stays with you long after it gets over making you think about its characters. It has got its moments..and you hope something like this party never happens in your life.. whichever of these 4 you may be.. You’d never want this evening in your life”
Swati Semwal said “I have worked with Samir before in advertising and always wanted to work with him again as he has a very unique perspective…when I read the script I knew I had to grab this opportunity as it was a very upbeat take on the different shades of women. His characters are not suffocated in a box …they break all stereotypes and it reflects pretty well on screen”.
