U Turn Movie Review: Pawan Kumar Weaves A Mystery Thriller Script Which Takes A Sharp Cut U Turn

Kannada Film Industry is getting elevated to the standards of Hollywood by some promising movies such as Lucia, Rangitaranga, and now it's U Turn. Lucia, a sci-fi romantic movie directed by Pawan Kumar, which was critically acclaimed by many cine critics. After a gap of 3 years, Pawan Kumar weaves a spooky thriller mystery from a set of real events as U - Turn

U Turn stars Shraddha Srinath in the lead role and Dileep Raj as her love interest. Roger Narayan, Radhika Chetan play the most crucial role in this movie. This movie is bankrolled by Pawan Kumar under his home banner Pawan Kumar Studios Pvt Ltd.

U Turn Plot

Rachana, an intern working in The Indian Express. She inscribes an article about some motorists who trespasses the double road flyover by removing the dividers and takes an U Turn with the help of a layman who is residing there in Bengaluru. When she commences to interrogate with one of those diacritic, that guy dies in a suspicious manner.

Cops paralyze Rachana as the convict. She gets more deeper into this case to spot the real killer, with the help of a genuine cop Nayak. Many unexpected twist gets stripped in a very spooky manner. How she unravels this mystery with a small pinch of love with Adhitya ( Dileep Raj) forms the main crux of this tale


Shraddha Srinath as Rachana, sticks to the story and also in our heart with her spectacular acting. Rachana's chemistry with Roger Narayan in resolving the case and also the love portions with Dileep Raj gets diluted with story by making this movie as a more fascinating one. Radhika Chetan as Maya arrives only for few minutes and steals the show by her peachy moves.


Pawan Kumar style of narrating U Turn is pixel perfect without any turmoil which will make each and every cosmopolite to think and take an U Turn. Poornachandra Teaswi music harmonizes as the backbone to this story. Entire sound department's contribution has elevated this script to take a sharp cut U Turn. DOP by Satya Hegde, Advaitha Gurumurthy and Siddhartha Nuni pitches this movie to give a horrifying experience.


Script takes a spooky U Turn in all individuals heart with which they should fear to shift the dividers

ನ್ಯೂ ಯಾರ್ಕ್ ಐಐಎಫ್ ಗೆ ಬೆಸ್ಟ್ ಸ್ಕ್ರೀನ್ ಪ್ಲೇ ನಾಮಿನೇಶನ್ ಆಗಿದ್ದ ಚಿತ್ರ ಕೆಲವುಕಡೆ ಲೂಸಿಯಾದ ಛಾಯೆ ಮೂಡಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಅಲ್ಲಲ್ಲಿ ನಿಮ್ಮನ್ನು ಗೊಂದಲಕ್ಕೆ ಸಿಲುಕಿಸಿದರೂ ಅಂತಿಮವಾಗಿ ಸಮಾಜಕ್ಕೆ ಸಂದೇಶವೊಂದನ್ನು ನೀಡುತ್ತಲೇ ಚಿತ್ರ ಮುಕ್ತಾಯವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.

In an age where the quality of the movies in the industry has been degrading with every movie release and there is a huge clamor for quality of the content, U-turn is a welcome change.
