Jan 02, Shitiz Srivastava rated it it was amazing When I first entered the film line and decided to write my own films, I was advised by nearly everybody to read Manto. He was story writer and also a screenplay writer, though his film writing career never took off. Manto was a writer who primarily wrote for himself.

People also call him Premchand of Urdu Writing. His writing was very simple and easy to understand. He would create stories from daily life just like Premchand, but unlike Premchand, his When I first entered the film line and decided to write my own films, I was advised by nearly everybody to read Manto.

He would create stories from daily life just like Premchand, but unlike Premchand, his stories were not message-driven rather were a matter of fact thing.

His stories were mostly inspired by his own personal life and were told in the first person. There were times while reading I felt that he had written his biography in the garb of stories. Not that every story written by him was biographical in nature.

He has written on nearly every style of writing, that is why he is recommended for newbie writers to read because he gives you cast amount of variety in his writing. If you read his stories you will get complete knowledge about how to write stories, great stories. It was not that he had not written any message-driven stories. There are also message-driven stories too, like the farcical story called "Toba Tek Singh" which is so surreal that at first, it was difficult for me to understand at the first reading.

I had to read it many times and see its interpretations to understand it. Brilliant it was. Manto was often reprimanded and called to court for promoting obscene and sexual content through his stories. His stories, especially two of them, called "Boo" and " Kali Salwar" were y banned because they had too much sexual content in it. If you read those stories, which are available now easily, you will see that it was not the sex he was talking about but an instance during which two humans were doing sex and he as a writer was trying to understand what was going inside the minds of the people involved in it.

Again, brilliant those stories are. You actually see the world he takes you to. He has a great skill for putting details into stories and sometimes you wonder how observant he was to notice such things and later put them in his stories. Famous writer, filmmaker and Poet Gulzaar is a big fan of Manto and often quotes him in his talks and writings. He has even written a play on "Toba Tek Singh", one of the most controversial and famous stories of Manto. I lost my collection of Manto stories during my house shifting but the stories are still living inside my mind.
