Trailer is very Twisty & Suspense thriller, I gonna recommend you to watch this movie, good come back from Lucia Director Pawan
20 May 2016 | by prashantpattarSee all my reviews

Three years after his much-acclaimed micro-budget sci-fi romance, "Lucia", director Pawan Kumar returns with his Kannada film "U Turn", which is subtitled in English. Released under the Drishyam Films banner, this is a conveniently woven, head-scratching, super- natural thriller based on true events.

The tone of the narration is set by the inverted shot of a busy road in blue hue with the song "Karma" reverberating in the background. It is interesting as well as arresting.

Set in Bengaluru, the narration follows Rachna (Shraddha Srinath), a trainee journalist who is chasing a story related to motorists, who with scant respect for civic issues, shift the road dividers to take a "short-cut" U-turn on a busy bridge.

Suspense thriller, I gonna recommend you to watch this movie, good come back from Lucia Director Pawan.
