Ek Mulaqat Manto Se

March 3, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

NPR300

This play meets Manto, one of the most influential Indo-Pakistani writer who wrote mostly partition stories and essays. His life dwells around his childhood, family & friends, facing persecution, self-ridicule, depression, being broke, helplessness, drinking, Hindi cinema, satire, irony, hypocrisy, sadness, strife, and moral decay. The performance is based on his written articles that explores his life he spent and the society he lived in including the social changes he witnessed at the time of India’s Partition. Ashwath Bhatt plays Manto who engages with the audience in person, trying to answer the biggest question “Why I write what I write?”. The texts used in the play are Manto, Main Afsana Kyun Kar Likhta hoon, Khol Do, Kal Sawere Jo Meri Ankh Khuli and Deewaroon Pe Likhna. Begum Akhtar’s ghazals have been used at a few places to highlight the pathos of Manto’s life.
