Hyderabad: Tollywood Gorgeous actress Samantha Akkineni's U-Turn is released today on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.
U-Turn is the remake of the Kannada film of the same name. The original film was an independent effort by one of the promising talents of India, director Pawan Kumar. The remakes, however, have been made on a much bigger scale in terms of presentation and star cast.
U-Turn, a murder mystery drama is directed by Pawan Kumar. U-Turn is a remake of Kannada movie of the same title, in which Shraddha Srinath played the role of a journalist. The U-Turn is bilingual Telugu-Tamil movie, in which Samantha will be seen reprising the role of Shraddha Srinath and Aadhi Pinisetty will be seen playing police officer.
A remake film is not usually measured by the merits of the director's fidelity to the original version. In fact, the opposite is true. A frame-to-frame remake sans the director’s fresh interpretation of the themes and characters is like feeding on empty calories. It will be interesting to watch how differently Pawan has approached the plot and characters the second time.
The audience who have seen the original film in Kannada can vouch for the movie's suspense quotient. And we can be assured that Pawan would have just stepped up the suspense to next level while covering the seams that were visible in his Kannada version due to the low budget.
