The opening dialogue which Siddiqui’s Manto delivers in his patent sombre fashion, reverberates all through the video, “Mein toh apni kahaniyon ko ek aina samajhta hun jisme samaaj apne aap ko dekh sakey (I contemplate my tales to be the mirror through which society sees itself).” He repeatedly asks why talking up and saying the reality is incorrect or one thing that must be curbed.
The narrative unfolds as Manto is pressured to shift to Lahore. Kartik Vijay captures post-independent India and Lahore in refined sepia which completely blends with the crises of that point.
Siddiqui oscillates from the thoughts of a inventive genius to a susceptible man torn by the nation falling aside whereas intolerance is on a steady rise.
Siddiqui’s voice looms heavy over the trailer, particularly when he talks concerning the existential disaster confronted by many of the youth simply after Independence, “Jab ghulam the, tab aazadi ka khwab dekhte the, aur ab aazad hai toh kaunsa khwab dekhenge? (After we had been enslaved, we dreamt of freedom, however now that we’re free, what will we dream of?)”
Manto is scheduled to hit theatres on 21 September, 2018.
