A strategically brilliant artist does not need favourable conditions to make a solid work and this film, C U Soon is the prime example. This virtually made film that basically is a compilation of video calls and chats, is an absolute delight to watch. C U Soon features Fahadh Faasil, Roshan Mathew and Darshana Rajendran in the lead along with other talented artists including Maala Parvathy, Saiju Kurup and Amalda Liz. The star cast is limited but the performances are stunning.
Jimmy (Roshan Mathew) a client service executive in a bank in UAE meets Anumol Sebastian (Darshana Rajendran) through a dating app and instantly falls for her. Jimmy introduces her to his mother and youngest cousin, but the fact that the couple has not even met makes Jimmy’s mother suspicious and asks his cousin Kevin (Fahadh Faasil) an IT professional to check her details. Kevin a tech-savvy from a primary enquiry finds nothing wrong about Anumol, but eventually, things start falling out of place. From Jimmy finding Anu injured to her absconding, everything seems fishy and Kevin gets involved to help his cousin.
Extraordinary Making with Limited Resources
In an age where producers shell out crores to make a technically brilliant film, C U soon is rich with its cast and making. The script is top-notch with no over the top dialogues or moments and the film looks quite real. It is impossible to believe that the film is virtually cinematographed. Gopi Sundar’s intense music also stands out and complements the premise of the film.
The three main characters are fabulous in the film. Darshana Rajendran’s as Anumol has given a brilliant performance. There are times when Anu is emotionally vulnerable and feels helpless and you don’t find her performing but living that very moment. Roshan is good as Jimmy and FaFa, as usual, is excellent. Both the actors, in fact, are the perfect pick for their respective roles. Since the film revolves around faces than any other visuals, these crucial performances have worked in favour of the film.
A much necessary topic discussed
We don’t want to give out spoilers, but one thing we want to mention is the film hits bull’s eye with the topic it discusses. It is, in fact, a much necessary subject that deserves the limelight and Mahesh Narayanan has made sure it is conveyed well.
WATCH OR NOT
C U Soon is a must-watch for its brilliant performances, delightful making and most importantly for the intense subject that it discusses.
