Without further ado, let me say it here that the below post is filled with enough spoilers about C U Soon. So tread ahead carefully, if you have not seen the film.

With the police after him, Jimmy seeks the help of his hacker cousin Kevin (Faahad Faasil) to seek our her whereabouts and save him from the mess. Kevin, through a lot of hacking, finds out the horrifying truth about Anumol, realising that compared to her woes, they had it easy.
C U Soon had been shot during lockdown, with the team following all precautions. In creating a gripping suspense thriller, Mahesh Narayan borrows the format of the Hollywood film, Aneesh Changathy's Searching, starring John Cho. The entire movie has been shot through virtual format, with events shown through social networking apps, web-cams, laptop screens and video calls. The idea adds a lot of intrigue to the film, making C U Soon a unique and brave thriller made in Malayalam Cinema.
So what do all the events in the film lead to? Here's what happens in the climax of the film.
Anumol's Tragic Saga
Through hacking into Anumol's real FB profile and getting access to her messages to her real family, Kevin discovers her tragic backstory. Anumol doesn't belong to any affluent family settled in UAE as she initially told Jimmy. She belongs to a poor household in Ranni, who is one of the many girls trapped in a fake employment racket and brought to UAE to be sold into a prostitution ring. There she is forced to be a call girl and suffers enough torture.
The family she is staying right now also has a daughter named Anumol, who is in Bangalore, and it is her identity that she stole to speak to Jimmy. OTT Releases Of The Week: Disney's Mulan, Fahadh Faasil's C U Soon, Netflix's Bad Boy Billionaires and More To Watch In First Week of September 2020.
Through Jimmy, she was seeking a means to escape from her hell, having already spoken to the consulate to make an escape. But while staying with Jimmy, she begins to have a hope of a normal life. Which gets shattered when Jimmy inadvertently meets her pimp (who she had passed off her father). She also gets a call from Jimmy's mother, who learnt the truth about her. This is why she chose to leave Jimmy to go to the consulate to help them expose the racket.
Through her passport details, Kevin finds out that she is returning to Kerala, the same day as Jimmy has been called back to The States by his mother. Kevin asks Jimmy if he still loves her, and tells him that she is waiting to board the flight at another gate. Despite his best efforts, Jimmy misses meeting her, her flight already departed.
In Kerala, Anumol gives interviews to channels giving more details of the racketeers, leading to the arrest of a few. Kevin manages to talk to Anu, and asks her why she didn't leave early from Jimmy's life when she had the chance. Her response gives him the idea that she was in love with him, and was not merely using him. When he also realises that Jimmy still has feelings for her, Kevin gives him his number.
We don't know if Jimmy calls Anumol or if he goes to meet her in her home at Ranni, as the movie ends on a cliffhanger. There is post script that says that the entire film has been based on the virtual lives of these characters. The next chapter will be on their real-lives and it will come straight to theatres, with the film's title - C U Soon - splashed on the screen. So are we going to have a sequel, where we get to see more on Jimmy and Anumol's love story?
