Although not aggressively promoted, 'Manjunath' is a modest film which is the true tale of a gritty man fighting corruption. The film is based on Manjunath Shanmugham, an IIM Lucknow pass out working with an oil giant as the sales manager. When he exposed corruption, the 27 year old was shot dead. The film plays out the drama that ensued while highlighting the apathy of the state of affairs we live in. This is amongst many films trying to drive home a message. The death of Manjunath had stirred a storm, which inspired the director to make the film. Although there weren't many takers, the director's belief in the story pushed him to go ahead anyway with the project.
Directed by Sandeep A Varma the movie stars Divya Dutta , Seema Biswas , Yashpal Sharma, Kishore Kadam, Anjori Alagh and Rajesh Khattar among others. Releasing on the 9th of May along with many other films, the fate of Manjunath is dependant mainly on word of mouth publicity.
