Feature Name: Toba Tek Singh
Director: Ketan Mehta
Cast: Pankaj Kapur, Vinay Pathak and others
Runtime: 76 mins (1 hr 16 min)

Based on Saadat Hassan Manto‘s short story Toba Tek Singh, this long short film, starring Pankaj Kapur as the madman Bishen Singh aka Toba Tek Singh and Vinay Pathak as Saadat Hassan, forces you to think about the consequences every one faced at the time for partition and leaves you in awe of the amazing performances of the leading cast.

Ketan Mehta has very convincingly depicted the short story written by Manto. This short film will premiere on Friday, 24th August, as a part of the Zee5 Film Festival and should be watched by everyone for its brilliant story.
Watch the trailer here:

All in all, Toba Tek Singh is an agnostic afsaana (story), as Manto would put it, one shouldn’t miss.

We give it a 4 Buzzing Bees. With a jar of honey for Pankaj Kapur’s earnest portrayal of Bishen Singh.
