DANNY BOYLE’S NEW THRILLER: ’TRANCE’,
VISHAL BHARDWAJ’S ‘EK THI DAAYAN’

 

Coastweek -- AWARD WINNING director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) brings us another thrilling mystery drama with James McAvoy, Vincent Cassell and Rosario Dawson, writes ANJUM ASODIA.  

Trance, which opens at the NYALI CINEMAX this week shows us an art auctioneer, Simon who goes onto the dark side when he joins up with a gang of thieves whose specialty is fine arts that have a lot of value.

An expensive Goya is selected and the robbery is successful.

In the process though, Simon gets a blow to his head rendering him unconscious.

When he comes to, he seems to have got a temporary loss of memory and cannot remember where he has hidden the precious painting.

Gang leader Frank is of course not very happy and tries everything to jog Simon’s memory but nothing works.

When all else fails he hires the services of a hypnotherapist to solve this problem.

As she goes deeper into the abyss of his mind where many secrets have been locked over time, she realises that she has got herself into more than just a hypnotic session.

Ek Thi Daayan (once there was a witch) is the second new film at the NYALI CINEMAX that is also on it’s worldwide release.

India’s top-notch magician Bobo is in trouble.

Constant hallucinations are making his life miserable and he is forced to seek psychiatric help.

Through regression hypnosis (again ??) the reality comes out that there was an evil power that destroyed his family when he was a child and the same daayan has come back to finish what she started.

Now that he knows the truth, Bobo decides to put all this past him and move on with his life.

That is until the irresistible Lisa Dutt enters his life.

He is so sure that she is the daayan and will ruin him and does everything in his power to get her out of his life, but is she really or is all this a figment of his imagination ?
