C U Soon Movie Review

Rating: 4/5

In this day and age when filming is not easy, at a time when many people have lost the mentality to even think about filming, ‘C U Soon’ is a beacon of survival and self – confidence when society is gripped by an epidemic. ‘C U Soon’ will be a film that will go down in history in every sense as a symbol of the resistance of the times. The concept of the film is based on the depth of its theme and the novelty of the making.

Watch an entire movie like making a video call. The one-and-a-half-hour-long film is set in an Iowa style that may seem strange to hear. Literally a ‘small screen OTT’ movie. It’s love, it’s love, it’s emotion, it’s thrill, it’s all there is to a commercial film.

Jimmy and Kevin are cousins. Jimmy works in Dubai and Kevin is back home. Jimmy meets a girl named Anu through Tinder and later falls in love with her. Jimmy talked about Anu’s with his mother and the rest of the relatives, but there was no response from Anu’s family. Jimmy then faced challenges he had never imagined. Kevin was the only one who could help him. The film discusses what happens next to the relationship between Jimmy and Anu.


Darshana Rajendran played the lead role for the first time in her career. The actress beautified the role with a lot of acting potential even in a challenging atmosphere. Along with Roshan Mathew, Mala Parvathy, Saiju Kurup and Kottayam Ramesh have done well in their careers.

Kevin’s character was not a challenge for actor Fahad Fazil. But for producer Fahad, See You Soon was a big challenge. The first reports of the film indicate that Fahad easily overcame that challenge. Film is a perfect example of Fahad’s work, a non – speaking person, who showed his colleagues that he could not make a film, or was afraid to make such an attempt, and was waiting to leave COVID. When Fahad proves that action is not a matter of words, the minimum guarantee that a Malayalee can expect in an actor like him can now be expected from the producer himself.

The film is a testament to the excellence of director Mahesh Narayanan as a technician. He competes in writing, directing and editing with the film Iowa. He codified the visuals from the iPhone to the car’s reverse camera so beautifully that the audience would not know any difference.

Sabin’s cinematography and Gopi Sunder’s music make the film even more beautiful. Making such a great film with limited facilities is an achievement that every person who worked behind the scenes can be proud of.
