Uturn is based on a the series of killings that happened in a Bangalore flyover. How a police inspector and intern journalist crack down the case forms the crux of the story. Kannada version which was released in 2016 received widespread critical and commercial success.
Pawan Kumar who is directing this venture is considered as a game changer of Kannada cinema. His film Lucia has received universal acclaim upon release for its complex story line and the way it was treated in the film in a masterful manner. The movie was remade into Tamil by Prasad Kumar with the title Enakkul Oruvan starring Siddharth and Deepa Sannidhi.
Coming back to Uturn, principal star cast of the film consists of Samantha Akkineni, Aadhi, Rahul Ravindran and Bhumika Chawla. The movie is produced by Srinivasa Silver Screens. Uturn is slated for a September 13 release.
