Fahadh Faasil is riding a wave of success with his films Varathan, Njan Prakashan, Kumblangi Nights and Athiran scoring it big at the box office successively.
And his next release will be Trance, directed by Anwar Rasheed. The film has been in the making for nearly two years now and will take another four to five months to hit the marquee. The earlier plan was to release Trance for Eid this year and then it was postponed to Onam. According to a Times of India report, the filmâ€™s release has been furher pushed to Christmas. Reports are that the film needs oodles of VFX which is delaying its release by a few months.
Earlier reports said that the film was reaching post production stage, with a schedule completed in Amsterdam. Trance has been scripted by Vadakkan Vincent. Apart from directing the film, Anwar Rasheed is also producing it, and is handling the camera.
Bolt High Speed Cinebot cameras, which are used for Hollywood films, have been used for Trance, to film some action sequences. This is the first time that these cameras are being used for a Malayalam film, which has further upped the expectations.
The first look poster of the film was released a few months ago. In the movie, Fahadh reportedly plays a fisherman turned healer and Nazriya will be seen as a mystery woman. However, there is still no confirmation on their roles.
The film also has in its cast Vinayakan, Soubin Shahir, Chemban Vinod, Sreenath Bhasi and Alphonse Puthran. Debutant Jackson Vijayan is composing the tunes for this film. Vinayakan is also composing a song for the film.
Fahadh Faasil and Anwar Rasheed have earlier teamed up for one of the segments in the anthology Anchu Sundarikal and this is their second venture together. Anwar is directing a film after six years.
