Trance – Storyline
Trance is about a small-time motivational speaker Viju Prasad (FahadhFaasil), who suddenly loses his parents. With his painful past and search for fame, he soon lands up in Mumbai. Looking at his vulnerability, two evil businessmen, Rozario and Gilbert (Gautam Menon and Chemban Vinod), recruit him for a religious project. Viju soon turns into the Pastor of a local church and transforms it into a mighty force. What ensues after that is a heady tale of corporatization that forms the crux of Trance.
Fahadh, in the role of Viju, once again reminds audiences why he is considered one of the finest actors in India with his impeccable acting skills and energy. NazriyaNazim sheds her bubbly image playing the role of Esther Lopez. Gautham Menon, as Rozario, has excelled in his position. The remaining star cast, too, has done a commendable job.
AmalNeerad’s cinematography is brilliant. Jackson Vijayan’s unique soundtrack nicely fits the narrative. The BGM by Jackson Vijayan and SushinShyam is fantastic and elevates the overall experience.
Director Anwar Rasheed, along with writer Vincent Vadakkan, deserves big applause for treating a susceptible subject with utmost sensibility.
Trance is, without a doubt, one of the bravest films ever made. The movie is a must-watch, especially for its brilliant performances.
Midnight Murders – Storyline
Anwar Hussain (KunchackoBoban) is a psychologist by profession. To oblige his friend, he starts working as a consulting criminologist with Kochi Police. By chance, he stumbles upon a case involving a series of brutal murders executed at midnight. The rest of Midnight Murders is about answers to the questions, who is the culprit? What is the motive behind the murders? How does Anwar go about cracking the mystery?
KunchackoBoban is impressive as a consulting criminologist and delivers an impactful performance. The main antagonist in the movie is good and dishes out a convincing performance. The lady police officer in the film impresses her acting skills and effectively portrays multiple sides of her character. Pooja Ramchandran also executes her role perfectly.
The movie’s screenplay is good. The director Midhun Manuel Thomas has done an excellent job of making a crime thriller based on murders.
Shyju Khalid’s cinematography is superb, particularly the night shots, which have been showcased brilliantly.
The film’s music, directed by SushinShyam, aptly fits its narrative. The engaging background score helps elevate the movie. SaijuSreedharan’s editing is excellent, and the film’s production values are decent.
All in all, Midnight Murders is an engaging crime thriller that deserves to be watched.
