Fahadh Faasil's C U Soon to premiere on September 1
The film is unique for being shot with a phone in a controlled and restricted environment during the lockdown
Fahadh Faasil's next, C U Soon, will be hitting Amazon Prime Video on September 1. Directed and edited by Mahesh Narayan (Take Off), the experimental film is a follow-up to Malik, Fahad's other completed project also helmed by Mahesh.
C U Soon, which also features Roshan Mathew (Kappela, Choked) and Darshana Rajendran (Mayaanadhi, Virus) in pivotal roles, is touted as a gripping drama about a software engineer from Kerala who has been assigned by his family to help his Dubai-based cousin find his missing fiancée after she leaves behind a video-based suicide note. It is unique for being shot with a phone in a controlled and restricted environment during the lockdown.
“Working with Mahesh has always been an inspiring experience. We had an incredible stint with Take-Off,” said Fahadh, who is also the producer. “Making C U Soon was an interesting and exciting experience. Having shot the film entirely during the lockdown, we’re immensely glad to be able to continue to entertain and bring exciting content for our audience even at a time like this and hope that fans across the world enjoy and share their love towards the film.”
“C U Soon is a computer screen based drama thriller - a new concept that has barely been explored in Indian cinema,” said Mahesh. “People are attempting to stay virtually connected during these unprecedented times, and we wanted to take this concept a step further by exploring a unique format of storytelling through multiple screen devices. This film would not have been conceptualised or created without the virtual communication software and their developers. I hope this will inspire many artists to realise their creativity during such times and turn these challenging situations into opportunities to discover a new narrative of storytelling. I am delighted to globally premiere C U Soon on Amazon Prime Video.”
Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video India, said, “Fahadh Faasil is synonymous with gripping Indian language blockbusters and a combination of him with Mahesh Narayan in an experimental film format is definitely one to watch out for. With Onam around the corner, we are hoping to add a little more sweetness to the festivities with the release of C U Soon.”
