C U Soon Action Movie Review
Young women falling prey to the lure of prostitution is not something we have not seen on screen before. Cast: Fahad Faasil, Roshan Mathew, Darshana Rajendran / Director: Mahesh Narayanan.Especially when they are picked from a poor country like India and usually sent to the Middle East. Their mobile phones and passports have been confiscated, and the shocked women – who have been promised jobs abroad as slaves of wealthy families – have been subjected to mental and physical abuse. Several films have been made about this. Even a few weeks ago Khuda Hafeez tackled the same issue of how a newly married woman was sent to the bay on a professional assignment it ended in her being forced to work as her call girl .
C U Suni is Kevin Thomas (Fahad Fasil), a cyber expert living in the UAE. Her cousin, Jimmy Kurian (Raushan Matthew), also living in the UAE, when Anur (Darshana Rajendran) fell in love – met him on the web – he thought he should know more about her. So, he asked Kevin for help, who gave a clean chit about this girl, who is also in the UAE. Everything seems to be moving with the naughty Anu even Jimmy – although it is illegal for a man and a woman to live together in that part of the world without getting married. But when Jimmy noticed the marks of injury on Anu’s face, he guessed that it must have been his father who was abusing his daughter. It turns out the film is a thriller at the moment. When Khuda Hafiz took many steps, the CU soon remained within the four walls of a house or sometimes inside Kevin or Jimmy’s office. Kevin uses his cyber-security skills to capture CCTV footage of Jimmy’s flat.
There is a lot of privacy and espionage and messages between Kevin and Jimmy on their computer or mobile phone screens are given in such a way that they interrupt the details. In fact, much of the plot unfolds via phone / computer messages. Mahesh Narayanan’s latest Malayalam composition, C.U. Sun, which premiered on Amazon Prime Video, beats the same theme but is interestingly crafted and interesting to watch. A great script and fancy editing raises this love story of frustration and not without the usual melodramatic mode. Although shot during lockdown with virtual mediums, the movie has its limitations. Obviously, at one time there could only be one single character on screen and I wonder why the director didn’t use Zoom. Another problem, Narayanan himself pointed out in a conversation with Scroll, was can be used to refer to a continuous shot from a sequentially depicted action, or to spend a long time, because they could not work in a traditional themed movie … here I apply virtual cinematography.
This is where I edited the film and then tweeted with footage, widening a section, pan across the screen, zooming in or zooming out to add excitement and drama to the movie. However, the result is really great and never a dull moment. In these 90 minutes, C U Soon took the time to Unfold its storyline in surprisingly innovative ways. Of course Narayanan’s skills as a storyteller are impressive, and he turned a weather-drunk event into a brilliant watch. What stands out in the end is not so much that Anu was treated ruthlessly, as it is one of her love stories of anger, anguish and desperate helplessness. Jimmy’s frustration is explored with sensitivit
