C U SOON was completely shot entirely on an iPhone in Kerala, India between May and July 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic. If you liked The searching movie released in 2018, then you will like this movie. This movie has taken Malayalam cinema industry to a next level. The concept emphasizes the importance of the plot and the format experimented for the first time went proper and successful. The movie has a crisp runtime of 98mins directed by Mahesh, starring Fahadh Faasil, Roshan Mathew, Dharshana Rajendran in a pivotal role. Movie was produced under the banner called Fahadh Faasil and Friends.


C U SOON begins with a conversation between Jimmy (Roshan) and Anu (Darshana) on a dating app and they get to know very quickly. In a span of a week with several video-calls and chats, Jimmy falls deeply in love with Anu and expresses his desire to marry her on her birthday. Despite his proposal, Jimmy’s mother wanted to know more about Anu as her digital presence was masked in mystery, she asks Kevin (Fahad) Jimmy’s cousin, and a cybersecurity expert to check on her activities. He checks and gives a go-ahead for their marriage. The next fine day, Jimmy gets a call from Anu and asked him to take her to him as her father not willing to marry Jimmy.


Jimmy took her home, however, as per law, only married couples are allowed to live together, hence he started to prepare for getting married. Things got turned upside down when Jimmy meets Anu’s father and convinced him of their wedding, later Anu mysteriously disappeared. Because of her disappearance, Jimmy's anxiety, tautness makes him think that she might commit suicide. Sometime after police took Jimmy to custody for investigating about Anu but not revealing anything about her whereabouts. Jimmy seeks Kevin’s help for saving him.


What happens to Anu? Did Kevin find her? The remaining story was with so much suspense and an unexpected add-on social message.


At a run-time of 98 minutes, the storytelling is crisp avoiding unwanted scenes. Director Mahesh, being an ace editor makes archetypal cuts that smoothly changeover from one device screen to another respective of mobile or desktop, see-through momentous details in every scene. The music was refined and wonderfully carried till the end.


Roshan in the role of Jimmy Kurian a handsome and stupid but somewhat shows clever, Fahad as a cybersecurity expert and a computer genie, His screen presence is exceptional as usual. In spite of the fact that the entire movie was taken in a closed location and before the computer screen, the expression through his eyes proved his acting a real worth. He was one of the gifted ones in the cinema industry. The honors of C U SOON are for Darshana known for many supporting roles in Tamil and Malayalam movies, personally felt that this movie is her carrier break movie, tremendous performance.


Overall, C U SOON comes up with a different concept in terms of both plot and the format which made the viewers engage but sincerely not suitable for all movie lovers. This movie demonstrates and proves how technology has taken over humans and many are suffering because of it. 


I felt three things which taught from the movie, one never ever gets into a relationship without knowing fully about each other, the second is never ever allow technology to control over because anything that controls a human which may lead to destruction and loss in the peace of mind and finally never ever goes for work to the outside home country without doing proper research.
