This Friday, we have an interesting mix of movies like Batti Gul Meter Chalu and Manto. The first one has Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor fighting for justice while the other has an author using his words to bring in a revolution. Why we are calling it interesting is because while BGMM broaches the topic of privatisation of electricity hardly ever addressed by Bollywood, Manto speaks about the author's attempt to let words become mighter than a sword. Nawazuddin plays Manto in the film which has already created a lot of waves in the international markets. The actor has garnered huge acclaim for his part and now, finally, the film is releasing here. Here's a bit more about both the films...
