Saddat Hasan Manto was born to be filmed. His life and much-too-early-death teems with so much drama, and is drenched in so much history, that it is surprising the movies took so long to put Manto in the centre of his own narrative , on the face of it, there couldn’t have been anyone better than Nandita Das to helm the movie.Manto the movie goes back to a time when the subcontinent was being hacked apart, and carved into India and Pakistan, with Manto embodying the tragic senselessness of the Partition, leading to those crucial questions: where did he belong? Was he condemned to rootlessness and restlessness? And finally, damnation? Bombay, 1946. Our man Manto (Siddiqui) is on the cusp of everything that’s interesting in town. He is part of the progressive artists’ movement, bantering with Ismat Chugtai (Deshpande). He spends a great deal of time with the up-and-coming handsome star Shyam (Bhasin), trawling through Bombay’s burgeoning film industry and bustling studios, searching for inspiration and paying work. Manto’s talent is never in any doubt, but his streak of self-destruction is clear early on in his flashes of temper and willfulness: he is a handful, for his friends, and his wife and constant companion Safiya (Dugal). And then comes 1947, and Manto is forced into making a choice. India or Pakistan? He chooses the latter. His struggles with narrow-minded authority figures and binge-drinking, and we see the downward slide of a man squandering his prodigious talent, and the affection of his loved ones. Interesting movie to watch

The trafficking of girls keeps returning as a theme in films. How village ingénues are lured to the red-light areas, how they are beaten and threatened into submission, and how they survive, are familiar tropes. The real find is Mrunal Thakur who plays Sonia, the younger of two sisters, both victims of the vicious men and women who trade in flesh. Sonia gets ensnared in a brothel even as she struggles to discover the whereabouts of her sister Rashmi. She has no idea where to start, but she has no intentions of giving up. As Sonia is ‘readied’ and sent overseas as merchandise, one looks for newness, but finds mostly clichés, geared towards foreign eyes.
Along the way, she encounters the ruthless guy (Bajpayee) who runs his house like a ‘business’, the other girls with tragic back-stories, including one played by Chadha. And the well-intentioned Manish `bhaiya’ (Rao) who works with a NGO committed to the cause of rescuing and rehabilitating the women.
More focus on what happens to the girls when they are yanked from that life would have made Love Sonia fresher, and given the characters more to play with. The rest of it is OK to watch.
Director Manoj Sharma gearing for his new release titled Sharmaji Ki Lag gai, it is a light hearted comedy movie. good to watch with family and it carries strong message to the society. Stars seen are Krishna. Mughda Godse. Brijesh Kala and others.
