Manto, excellent piece on almost all of the afsanas by Saadat Hassan Manto , one of the brilliant biopics I've ever watched , I'd say this has been one of the best movies Pakistan has ever produced, Absolutely brilliant acting done by Sarmad Khoosat, I believe he is the only brilliant actor in Pakistan's Film Industry.
Directing and Acting are two different and hard things to do, and doing both of them together is even Harder, Hats off to Sarmad Khoosat for handling acting and directing brilliantly !
All of the actors did good ! And I loved the role of Faisal Qureshi even though it was for a short while but it was amazing,
Its a film on a man who lived his life with the fire which he thought he could control but he never knew it was slowly taking him over and that fire was his addiction, with that fire he created realistic characters which nobody ever wanted to accept, characters which became the major part of his life, and in the end they haunted him for being different and unique,
This is how struggling life Manto had lived , This life was his destiny.
My rating for this movie is 8.5/10.
