Verdict: Takes the "right" turn at the box office! U Turn is a remake of the 2016 Kannada film by the same name and is now simultaneously being made in Telugu and Tamil. Pawan Kumar, who has directed the original, has helmed the director’s hat, thus marking his debut in Telugu and Tamil film industries. With Samantha in the lead role and supported by Aadhi Pinisetty, the makers have made a smart... ...Read full review
U Turns strength is in the way the story builds up in the first half. Theres an element of shock and awe as the reporter is snatched away from her home and put in police station. For a while, the filmmaker keeps the audience guessing with sudden twists and developments in the investigation. Unfortunately, the second half lacks the bite of the films initial portions and a promising thriller turns into a bit of a drab. ...Read full review
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 Bommireddys camera, which gives the film its eerie feel, supported by the background score by Poorna Chandra Tejaswi. Pawan has a clever storyline as he harps on karma, the underlining theme of the film. It also delivers a hard-hitting message on how important it is to obey traffic rules. The film has its weakness as it oscillates between the real and the implausible; making it difficult for the screenplay to bridge the gap, especially in some key portions during the second half. The paranormal activities are tough to swallow. ...Read full review
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 Turn is beautifully written and stunningly performed. Nobody has made a stronger case for embracing the chaos till now. ...Read full review
An engaging edge of the seat thriller with a good social connect. The detailing gone into this film is highly intriguing and there is no doubt about it. Pawan Kumar uses the visuals to carry the story forward. There is a horseshoe falling down in a house, suggesting that the person has run out of luck. A few moments later, he is killed. During the opening credits of the film, we repeatedly hear the word `Karma` in the background score, and the film is based on that theme. Rather than just being the premise, the flyover comes off as a character by itself and that is something very impressive. ...Read full review
There is no time for fillers or songs in U Turn. The film starts as soon as the title cards end. Well, even the title cards have some relevance to the plot. A few minutes into the film, you are completely engrossed in the world of U Turn. Except for Rachana (Samantha), nobody gets a detailed introduction. All the characters hop onto the script and before you know, there is the interval block. You already know you won`t regret watching this film. ...Read full review
Thrillers that don`t mislead the audience are always respected and to this extent, `U Turn` has to be given its due. With a decent story line, the film thrills. Watching it with lowered expectations will help. The performances and the technical team deserve a pat. ...Read full review
