Brilliant Mystery thriller and one of the best movie's of 2016
28 December 2016 | by ridinbalSee all my reviews

"It may not be the best from Pawan(director of lucia) but his making style is really good and message was rightly portrayed which makes it a good horror mystery thriller film with social message.'U-Turn' should be watched by everyone for its innovative storytelling and convincing social message on road safety"

Positives- 1.)Direction and script- Pawan who earlier directed lucia was excellent movie which i rated 5 out of 5 but if i compare with this film then it may not be that great. He was trying to add horror thriller to a social message driven film which may have its flaws but he did a different attempt and i must appreciate him for that. Script was engaging along with direction.

2.)Shradda srinath , roger narayan and dilip raj- These 3 actors portrayed their roles properly and out of them shradda was outstanding and she was able to bring out those emotions perfectly without any flaws. Roger narayan as inspector was right choice by director. Dilip raj was fine.

3.)cinematography and edits 4.)Bg score 5.)Message about road safety was rightly conveyed.

Negatives- 1.)Cliches in second half - First half went with introduction of characters and that was fine. But second half the director's vision of portraying certain elements had flaws and it disturbed the experience. Director could have taken care of that to avoid this type of mistakes.

2.)Predictability- Because of certain cliché'd scenes it was predictable for audience which spoiled the experience of mystery thriller.

Is it a must watch? Yes it is a must watch film and it has a great social message. It is a innovative movie on road safety.

Overall- Despite flaws Its a good film if you check the overall aspect. It could have been better if director had rechecked some scenes to avoid some errors. But its fine if you not go with high expectations. It tells about the mysterious events that occur on the double road flyover with great social message added to it. I recommend you to watch it but without much expectations.

My rating- 4/5(Brilliant Mystery Thriller and one of the best movie's of 2016)
