Where people taking U-Turn by moving the divider blocks and not putting it back in place which causes lot of accidents in the flyover.
She with the help of a local homeless guy gets the vehicle number of the people who moved the divider blocks. And she interviews several of them for her article.
The story gets interesting when one of the guy she interviewed is found dead in his home and Radhika becomes prime suspect.
Can she get out of this case by proving her innocence and finding the real killer with the help of the police Arjun Sinha(Priyanshu Painyuli) and Inderjeet Singh(Shreedhar Dubey).
And also the movie brings lot of good ideas in the screenplay, as I have not watched the original version of the movie it really got me into liking it.
But as per the report there is a lot of changes in the screenplay happened when compared to its original version.
The movie brings lot of twist and U-turns in its narrative through out the film. And has a interesting screenplay and apt dialogues.
But the slow story telling is a disappointment as with a fast moving screenplay this could have been a even better film.
U-Turn will be a good movie if you go and watch it with out any higher expectation out of other versions.
