Saa'dat Hasan Manto was not only the most controversial writers of the Indian sub-continent but also the most loved and revered. On his birth centenary, we travel to the old neighbourhoods and bylanes of Bombay where Manto lived, loved and wrote some of his most humane, complex and scandalising characters. He understood not just the people, but the pre-Independence India which shaped the working class of the 1930s and 40s. Manto's Bombay explores his associations with the early years of Indian cinema and his reasons for leaving for Pakistan.
