Mantoiyat offers a refreshing rap version by none other than Raftaar.
The song following Manto’s take on society and his observations contain some hard-hitting lyrics.
Manto’s keen observation of society and his courage to pen them openly is just what Mantoiyat by Raftaar stands true to.
From addressing topics like sex, the portrayal of women, their perception, nothing gets swept under the carpet.
From female infanticide, dowry harassment to freedom of speech and its consequences, Raftaar manages to incorporate all elements of a dysfunctional society that we live in.
It is almost as if the two (Raftaar and Manto) walk hand in hand, making people aware of the acute hypocrisies that lie beneath the garb of propriety.
Manto is scheduled for release on 21 September.
