8.8OTTplay Rating
One of the most popular movies of Fahadh Faasil, Kumbalangi Nights is the story of four brothers, their relationships, their problems and affairs. Fahadh Faasil played the role of Shammi, a character who had a negative shade. Fahadh’s excellent performance as the wicked and abusive Shammi was one of the best in his career and was an unconventional role for a mainstream movie star. Kumbalangdi Nights still strikes a chord with the viewers with its beautiful cinematography and music.
7.8OTTplay Rating
Trance, directed by Anwar Rasheed, is a potent story about religious leaders and godmen. Fahadh Faasil plays the character of motivational speaker Viju Prasad, who later becomes one of the richest religious leaders.
