Times of India – C U Soon is a great example of making innovative content, utilising technology and fine storytelling, at a time when budgetary constraints and physical restrictions are forcing filmmakers to think out-of-the-box. For Mollywood’s first film that was made especially for an OTT release and experience, the film sets the bar high.
The News Minute – Despite the momentary distractions, Mahesh Narayanan, who wrote and directed the film, manages to tell an engaging story, taking all your attention to the happenings on the screens. It is the first such film in Malayalam and is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
The Indian Express – Producers Fahad Faasil and Nazriya Nazim, and director Mahesh Narayanan pick up a story with disturbingly familiar outlines and impart it with fresh urgency and impact, making each frame of the 1 hour 38 minutes run time count.
NDTV – C U Soon, frisky in pace but grounded in unwavering technique, is an affirmation of cinema's capacity to be creative and hopeful no matter how grave and protracted a crisis is. The film has been made so that some Malayalam movie industry hands can return to work and earn their wages in these trying times.
Mashable India – C U Soon is an absolute masterclass in terms of editing and acting. Mahesh Narayanan takes a simple love story between a banker named Jimmy Kurian (Roshan Mathew) and Anu (Darshana Rajendran) that goes sideways and his cousin Kevin’s (Fahadh Faasil) efforts to piece together what actually went down. And then he expertly adds layers upon layers onto the narrative in an attempt to start a conversation about how technology is both bringing us together and alienating us.
