7 Hati was written by Robby Ertanto, a student at the Jakarta Art Institute, over a period of two years.

It was Ertanto's directorial debut.
Happy Salma was approached to play the role of Yanti, a prostitute. Salma accepted the role, on the condition that she not have any form of physical contact with the male performers. She later said that "it’s okay to play a sensual character, but [she did not] want to do such scenes".
7 Hati follows the story of seven women who are unknowingly interconnected. The lead character, Kartini (Jajang C. Noer), is a 45-year-old obstetrician who finds herself increasingly sympathetic with her patients.
