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.

U-Turn has a crispy run time of just over 2 hours and manages to keep you fairly engaged. However, the director seems to be in a rush to end the film, and it takes a lot of tropes that you may see in a usual thriller.

Samantha Akkineni brings a good thriller that will throw a curveball in your face just when you believe you have it all figured out.

The most impressive thing about this film is the fact that it is a remake, and yet has succeeded in adapting to bigger audience. Pawan has challenged himself by reworking the climax of the film, which makes it interesting to the audience who have already watched his original U Turn in Kannada. U ...(more)

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. What impresses most is Nikketh Bommireddy's camera, which gives the film its eerie feel, supported by the background score by Poor...(more)
