Mystery thrillers often rely on its unpredictability to keep the viewers at the edge of their seats. Often filmmakers tend to get so involved with the way they tell their stories that they lose track of the big picture. After her marriage with Chaithanya, Samantha has been churning out blockbusters in the form of Rangastalam and Mahanati. And now, she comfortably completes a hat-trick with U-Turn. Director, Pawan Kumar floors one and all with his writing, screenplay, and direction.

The film revolves around Rachana (Samantha Akkineni), an Intern with the Times of India, who investigates traffic violations on RK Puram flyover, where several motorists manually remove a divider to take a U-Turn on the flyover. Before she knows it, Rachana is picked up by the police in the middle of the night and is accused of murder. While the entire police force looks at her as the prime suspect, officer Nayak (Aadi Pinisetty) believes that she’s innocent and hears out. As they investigate the case, they uncover a series of mysterious deaths of those who had taken the U-Turn on the flyover.

Samantha owns her character and is convincing as the scared, young journalist. She gets a meaty role and sinks her teeth into it. Aadi Pinisetty too impresses as the soft police officer. Bhumika Chawla and Rahul Ravindran deliver exactly what they are asked for, as do the rest of the cast members. U-Turn is a movie that constantly defies and challenges characterizations in the path of telling its own story. It will keep you guessing until the last minute and is a must-watch.
