Saadat Hasan Manto is well known for his writings on the Indian Partition. He wrote satirical pieces on many social topics as well.

1.Beemar (Sick)

Kumar a fun-loving young man, falls sick suddenly. With no one at home other than a young male servant to take care of him, his friends decide to shower him with unsolicited advice. Does the well-meaning advice really help Kumar is what remains to be seen!

2. Khudkushi (Suicide)

Khudkushi is a satirical play about a young woman who is mourning the untimely death of her love. She’s inspired by Heer-Rajha’s legendary love story and wants to join her lover in death. As the story unfolds, she is visited by the spirit of Heer who regales her with a colourful account of what comes after ‘happily ever after’. Is the romantic tale of Laila Majnu, Heer Ranjha and other iconic and revered couples all that its hyped up to be?

3. Aao Akhbaar Padhein (Come, Lets read the newspaper)

Aao Akhbaar Padhein is a rare satirical gem from the legendary writer. It is a storyline from the Pre-World War II India which was under British rule, and the world was going through many changes to maintain peace. In this setting, Manto, in his easy, thought provoking style creates a dialogue around Disarmament Conference. How does assurance of safety endanger peace and harmony?
