‘Manto’ trailer: Nawazuddin at his best


Nawazuddin Siddiqui is known as one of the most versatile actors in Bollywood at the moment. Be it comic, serious or downright dark roles, he can pull it all off with ease. Now, the trailer one of his most anticipated films ‘Manto’ is here where one can once again appreciate his acting prowess.
The trailer follows the life of Saadat Hasan Manto, a famous poet who was an important figure in India before its partition. He is shown as a man who is brutally honest, and whose honesty reflects in his writing. However, not everyone is happy with this attitude of his and he has to face societal and legal ramifications for his unabashed sense of writing. Set at the time when India got its Independence, ‘Manto’ is replete with well written dialogues with liberal use of Urdu words, giving an almost poetic quality to the trailer. Nawazuddin is of course perfect and simply brilliant as the legendary poet Manto and his subtle performance is already evident from this preview. Overall, it is not hard to understand why this film is gaining such popularity in International circles.
‘Manto’ will release in India on September 21st.
