The Telugu Film Industry is well known for its vibrant and extravagant films that are eye-candy. Providing the ultimate source of entertainment and if entertainment and blockbusters had a theory, the Telugu film industry has mastered it.
With many commercially successful films that have created many superstars, the industry is huge, profitable, and an important pillar of the Indian Film Industry.
However, audiences have shifted away from mainstream entertainment and toward more raw and content-rich films in the film industry. This was due to the rise of OTT platforms that produced low-budget films and series with so much content that they triggered a cinematic revolution in the industry.
OTT platforms and streaming platforms break through the content and production barriers to produce films and series that appeal to the audience.
Adding uniqueness to the industry, OTT Platforms and their pragmatic content have helped pave the way for newer trends that would shortly have an everlasting impact on the film industry.
With many new thriller movies online, one film adds a new colour to the genre.
Trance is a 2020 Malayalam psychological-drama film dubbed in Telugu and is now streaming on OTT Platform AHA.
By Vincent Vadakkan and Directed by Anwar Rasheed, Trance stars FahadhFaasil in the lead role. At the same time, DileeshPothan, Gautham Menon, Chemban Vinod Jose, NazriyaNazim, SoubinShahir, and Vinayakan play supporting roles. It is the first Malayalam film to be shot with Sync sound and use Bolt High-Speed Cinebot cameras. Newcomer Jackson Vijayan composed the film’s soundtrack while Vijayan composed the background score along with SushinShyam. The film’s cinematography was handled by AmalNeerad, with editing done by Praveen Prabhakar.
Critically acclaimed, Trance is based on substance dependence, religion, and the commercialization of spirituality, all very relevant topics of discussion in today’s society.
The film follows the events in the life of Viju Prasad, a small-time motivational speaker. His younger brother’s death leads him to relocate to Mumbai, where he is hired to be a Christian pastor and hoax miracles to boost the business of Soloman and Isaac. After being sent to Kochi as Pastor Joshua Carlton, he successfully boosts the enterprise and brings it to a global platform.
Things take a drastic turn when Joshua is called for an interview by reporter Matthews, where he drugs the reporter to prevent himself from performing a live miracle.
What follows is quite a few events that end with how Joshua uproots the fake enterprise and brings into light the issue of spiritual commercialization.
Trance is a film that follows the theme of dependency, be it drugs, religion, or spirituality; it drew parallels to biblical references and is just appealing to every viewer.
Not only are the themes of the film phenomenal, but it is also backed by a good story, marvellous performances, especially by the lead, and lucid cinematography and background score that binds the whole journey together.
If you want to experience this marvellous cinematic journey, Trance is available on aha app and is a must-watch thriller movie online.
