Interview with Director Sanjeev Sirpal | Random Tropical Paradise

Random Tropical Paradise, now available on VOD, stars Bryan Greenburg and Brooks Wheelan as Harry and Bowie, best friends who find themselves destined for a vacation after Harry finds his bride cheating…on their wedding day. With Harry in need of a good time, they set off on a “bromie-moon” and use the reservations at a tropical paradise to loosen up and have a little fun. Along the way, they meet up with drug dealers, criminal heavyweights, and of course, beautiful women.

Following his debut film, Screw Cupid, writer-director Sanjeev Sirpal decided to focus on a buddy-comedy that specialized in his brand of humor. For our exclusive interview, we sat down with Sanjeev and discuss his journey to Hollywood, getting Random Tropical Paradise made, and even how he convinced Joe Pantoliano to join the cast.

A very entertaining discussion with a sharply comedic mind, listen below to our interview with director, Sanjeev Sirpal.

For Harry Fluder, life was working out exactly how he thought it was supposed to. He had a great job, loyal friends, and the perfect fiancee. However, finding one of his maybe not-so-loyal friends doing a “great job” with his perfect fiancee, was not part of the plan.

After cancelling the wedding, Harry, in a drunken stupor, ponders how everything that was so right could have gone so wrong, meanwhile Bowie, Harry’s best man, gets a flash of inspiration. Instead of also cancelling the amazing tropical honeymoon, why don’t the two of them go instead, on an epic “homie-moon.”

What is supposed to be a refreshing weekend of rest and relaxation turns into an all-out bonkers adventure of epic proportions. Harry and Bowie will have the time of their lives, if they can just survive this Random Tropical Paradise.

About Aaron B. Peterson

The Hollywood Outsider was born in an attempt to discuss a myriad of genres, while also serving as a sounding board for the ‘Average Joe’ – those film buffs who can appreciate Taxi Driver just as much as Transformers – without an ounce of pretentiousness. I try to approach each film on its own merits, and through the eyes the filmmakers intended.

Enjoy yourself. Be unique. Most importantly, ‘Buy Popcorn’.
