U Turn Review: This Samantha starrer has plenty of thrills

U Turn Movie Review

The opening credits of U Turn is an inverted visual of a flyover, establishing that it has something to do with the plot of the film. From then on director Pawan Kumar takes you on a thrill ride, which revolves around a journalist and the deaths of several motorist who die mysteriously on the flyover.

The first half of the film keeps you hooked as it offers genuine thrill and jump scares. What works well is Rachana’s (Samantha) determined yet frightened personality which helps Inspector Nair trust her. Added to it is the swift pace at which the camera follows its characters, keeping one engaged to the story. Following the amazing set-up, the film’s second half tries to further investigate the case of motorists and their deaths which gain suspicion.

There are also some nice parts where Rachana speaks to her friend on her choice of dress and Rachana’s cute love track with her colleague was quite a good inclusion too. The second half unveils the suspense, which is sure to keep on at the edge-of-your-seat. But as all the logic of the horror films applies – here to hell hath no furry like the wounded soul of a ghost. That’s exactly what happens here.

Although I didn’t understand why Rachana keeps breaking down and weeping heavily. It’s understood that she’s scared but this heavy emotion could’ve been toned down a bit. The child artist’s Tamil sounded like a voice over for a Hindi commercial.

Overall, this film works quite well as a suspense thriller that’s driven by good performance and Pawan Kumar style of filmmaking that doesn’t feature commercial aspects.
