Nandita Das' directorial Manto has become the talk of town.

Its hard-hitting trailer had everyone glued to screens and now that the film is out, people are flocking to cinemas to see Nawazuddin get in the shoes of the Urdu playwright.

While the film's fate in Pakistan is still uncertain - we won't be able to watch it soon - but if Twitter is anything to go by, it seems like Manto will definitely be worth the wait.

Here's how the film fared, according to Twitter.
