If you go watch Sarmad Sultan Khoosat’s Manto expecting a heartbreaking biopic you won’t be disappointed. But this is just where the film starts.

The story of a literary genius, destroyed by the very society that necessitates his existence, is interesting and easily digestible. We know Manto: the one sane man against the world that denies the truth, validating all our cynicism about the cruel world. But we now meet the tortured soul who is unable to cope with his inner struggles.
