  • Unfortunately Nandita Das's sophomore directorial venture Manto serves neither as a primer on the (in)famous author, nor offers any deeper insight to those familiar with his oeuvre.

  • "Manto" is elegant and old school, epic without losing sight of the personal.

  • Captures the spirit of the great Urdu poet and writer.

  • Going in, I'd expected Manto to provoke and make a statement at every opportunity. What I got instead, was an unflinching portrait of a man who despised taking the middle road.

    March 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Manto is an engrossing experience and one that finds itself perhaps more relevant today than it might've been even ten years ago.

    October 4, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The maestro Zakir Hussain provides an intricate background score, one that is occasionally highlighted by a discordant, drunken sitar twang. This sense of intoxication informs the visuals as well.
