When religion is the new medication, Anwar Rasheed's Trance makes certain to evoke an emotional response from those blinded by confidence, the freethinkers and cynics. The film, all things considered, is about a phony minister, who is only a front for the business tasks of corporates to mint cash utilizing confidence as the main thrust.
Viju Prasad (Fahadh), a down-on-his-karma inspirational coach runs from post to column to make his labor of love, in the midst of likewise dealing with his more youthful sibling. In any case, things take a desperate turn and he is compelled to move to Mumbai to get another beginning. What's more, at this melancholy point, he gets an idea from two rich men (Gautham Vasudev Menon and Chemban Vinod) to go along with them as a minister of sorts. Their motivation is to mint cash utilizing confidence as the front. After a brief training in religious philosophy, Viju assumes the personality of Pastor Joshua Carlton and his attractive persona alongside the organized demonstrations of wonders, energizes the curated brand picture of a Messiah. Be that as it may, a trick on live TV brings the whole activities under the scanner and the remainder of the film follows its effect on Joshua, his managers and his supporters.
Fahadh as a curbed Viju and the flashy Joshua is the deranged vitality that drives the film. He is magnetic as Joshua, and his character is a perfect representation of a portion of the well known confidence healers around the globe. Gautham Vasudev Menon, Dileesh Pothan as Joshua's counselor Avarachan and Soubin Shahir as TV columnist Mathew are the other three boss characters who carry the required haul to adjust Fahadh's exhibition.
Nazriya's job as Esther Lopez is not normal for anything she has done previously. As the weed-smoking, liquor swilling young lady, it's a perfect breakaway from the bubbly, young lady nearby jobs that she is typically connected with. Supporting acts from Chemban Vinod and Vinayakan keep the film intriguing.
Chief Anwar gets the first half completely directly in quite a while pacing and substance. Be that as it may, the second 50% of the content, by Vincent Vadakkan, loses steam with the plot at that point practically mirroring Joshua's outlook in those scenes. The producers appear to have picked style over substance in the last half. The point among Esther and Joshua additionally appeared forcefit and hauls out what is a right around three hour film. Vincent however gets focuses for featuring the hazards of expectation that phony saviors furnish with a urban and jazzy interpretation of the applicable reason.
Amal Neerad's cinematography particularly in the scenes in Kanyakumari and Mumbai inhales an additional whiff of outside air. Obviously, the casings are uber snappy and combined with the BGM from Sushin Shyam and Jackson Vijayan, Trance makes for a mixed watch.
