A Mention Worthy Remake From Team Pawan And Samantha!
The basic idea of the double road flyover is something that has not been tried or tested in Tamil cinema and this immediately creates an interest in the mind of the watcher. What makes U-Turn engrossing is its technical superiority. Pawan deserves credit for the detailing of the "U" in several objec...(more)

An engaging edge of the seat thriller with a good social connect.

Samantha Akkineni owns Pawan Kumar's paranormal thriller, elevated by an interesting premise
There are plenty of twists and turns that keep you hooked till the very last scene. The director, at the end of the film, says his story is based on real-life incidents.
