Manto disappointed everyone associated with the film as the movie’s opening was a disaster. The movie had occupancy below 5% and it indicated early in the morning which hardly jump if we look at the occupancy of the movie. The movie had an occupancy of 10-15% in the evening shows in metro cities only. If we talk about the occupancy in small towns, it was a disaster as there is no mass appeal in the movie.
Manto collected 55 lakhs on its first Friday which is not good from any angle. The movie needs to grow really well over Saturday and Sunday if it has to put decent numbers on the cards. Here good growth does not mean 100 or 200% as the opening collections are too low for the movie. It has to put at least 6-7 crores at the end of the first weekend which seems quite impossible if we look at the opening numbers.
Manto is directed by Nandita Das. The movie starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role. The movie opened with mix response from the public. It is a critically acclaim film which got appreciation from the critics for the performance of actors but the movie has lack of entertainment which is the core requirement for any movie if it has to sustain well at the ticket window.
