The birth of Mantostaan lends its foundations to a deep historical mosaic of four of the most controversial and burning short stories dictated by legendary and critically acclaimed Urdu writer, Saadat Hassan Manto (Khol Do, Thanda Ghosht, Assignment and Aakhri Salute). Haunting yet humorous, this dark satire unveils the gritty side of human beings that exhaled from the 1947 India-Pakistan partition. Encountering extreme and irrevocable incidents of terror and bloodshed, we endure the sufferings of the common man and learn of how human beings are their own enemy. Friend or foe.
