It is interesting how Khalid has gone forth with a fictional approach, as a biographical POV of the writer has been done and showed way too many times. Plot-wise, the trailer does not give much away, but the fifty-second clip will surely leave you enthralled if you’re a fan of Manto or gripping short films.
