The film is set in an utterly eerie environment. It takes place in a city where criminal activities seem standard. Radhika Bakshi, an interning journalist, is covering a story on her city men who take illegal U-turns on a flyover, leading to horrific accidents. She is a very dedicated professional and does not meddle with others’ business. But somehow, she becomes the prime suspect in a gruesome murder. Now the policemen are bent on proving her guilty. Radhika tries hard to prove her innocence, but every circumstance is against her. Now it is for us to find out on the 28th of April if she succeeds in her fight. Is she telling the truth?

U-Turn Star Cast
This ZEE5 original stars the very talented Alaya Furniturewala. Alaya plays the lead role of journalist Radhika Bakshi and the entire story revolves around her. We have seen Alaya in Freddy, another suspense thriller, recently. She is praised for her superb acting skills by many Bollywood celebrities. Priyanka Chopra Jonas even referred to her as the industry’s next superstar! She has done an excellent job in U-Turn, as evidenced by the trailer.
As told before, the plot is about Radhika proving herself innocent to the police officers who are hell-bent on putting her behind bars. The character of policemen is portrayed by Rajesh Sharma as HSP Saxena and Priyanshu Painyulli as Inspector Arjun Sinha. Rajesh Sharma has acted in comic roles and done brilliantly on every project. Fans also expect a pinch of humour in U-Turn, thanks to his superb comic timing. Aashim Gulati stars as Radhika’s boyfriend, Aditya, although we don’t see much of him in the trailer. We hope Aashim gets enough screen time since he has done a fantastic job in his previous projects.
U-Turn is the Hindi remake of the Kannada movie that goes by the same name. Pawan Kumar directed the film in 2016, starring the brilliant Shraddha Srinath in the lead role. The critics and the Kannada audience highly acclaimed this version. After its release in 2016, a Tamil version was released in 2018 and starred the fantastic actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu. Samantha did an excellent job, and the film became a super hit.
The ZEE5 version of U-Turn is directed by the talented newcomer in the industry, Arif Khan. Arif has done an outstanding job; we can see it in the trailer. To witness the complete magic, renew your ZEE5 subscriptions before the 28th of April and get ready to find out the truth behind Radhika’s fight to prove her innocence.
