Trance is anchored by a powerful Fahadh Faasil performance. Also in the technical department,
the film is exceptionally well made. Amal Neerad's career-best work as a cinematographer, Resul Pookutty's sound design,
background score by Jackson Vijayan and Sushin Shyam, and most notably, Ajayan Challisery's art direction. Together with Fahadh Faasil,
the technical members put in their A-game to make Trance quite a transcendent watching experience.
Anwar Rasheed's 'Trance' makes fun of fake preaching, and warns a society that takes the practice too seriously not to have blind faith in religion.
At the center of Trance is Fahadh Faasil's Viju Prasad. Trance is a story of how he transforms from a motivational speaker into a purveyor of religion.
One of the initial scenes of the movie, we see Fahadh Faasil in front of a mirror.
His Shammi from last year's 'Kumbalangi Nights' opens with a grand statement in front of the mirror: "The Complete Man."
Here too Fahadh has his 'mirror moments'. Viju puffs up his chest, pumps the first, and says self-motivational things in front of it
reminding us of Robert De Niro from Raging Bull. These mannerisms and Fahadh's manic energy help him turn Viju into this preacher we
would later meet in the film.
