Samantha's latest movie U Turn has opened to positive reviews from the critics and audience. The brilliant story backed by fantastic performance from the cast have impressed the viewers.

Following the footsteps of Nayanthara, Samantha has taken interest to do a solo woman-centric movie and opted to remake the hit Kannada movie U Turn. It is a thriller film with a serious message on the importance of following traffic rules. U Turn movie stills.

Pawan Kumar, who wrote and directed the original, is helming the movie, which is simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu languages. The film has Bhumika Chawla in a key role with Aadhi Pinisetty and Rahul Ravindran appearing in pivotal characters. Narain, Ravi Prakash and others are in the cast.

Poorna Chandra Tejaswi, who composed music for the Kannada version, has composed the music for the remakes as well. Niketh Bommireddy has handled the cinematography department, while Suresh Arumugam has edited the flick.

An intern played by Samantha is collecting necessary information about the accidents happening in a flyover. She is shell-shocked when she is dragged into the case of the mysterious deaths. The agony that undergoes and how she overcomes the difficult situation to solve the puzzle form the interesting part of the story.

The movie has a solid screenplay that keeps the viewers on the edge of their seats. Every twist and turn give goose bumps to the viewers. Samantha's extraordinary performance and background are the major highlights of the flick, say viewers.

Xappie®: #Uturn raises more questions than it answers scene after scene - exactly how a thriller should be. Excellent BGM uplifts this whodunnit plot.
Jail sequence in 2nd half is the best. Goosebumps guaranteed.
Playing around the notions of moral responsibility in society & increasing irresponsibilities in general, build a whodunnit story that makes it a decent thriller. @Samanthaprabhu2 @bhumikachawlat @AadhiOfficial #UTurn
#UTurn Excellent 1st half. Definitely makes you think twice before making any unlawful U turns.
Hooks you right from the outset, without deviating from the plot, keeps you hooked to the seats.
@Samanthaprabhu2 & @AadhiOfficial are excellently fit in their roles
