Story synopsis

The film follows the most tumultuous four years in the life of Manto (Nawazuddin Siddique)  and that of the two countries he inhabits – India and Pakistan. In Bombay’s seedy-shiny film world, Manto and his stories are widely read and accepted. But as sectarian violence engulfs the nation, Manto makes the difficult choice of leaving his beloved Bombay. In Lahore, he finds himself bereft of friends and unable to find takers for his writings. His increasing alcoholism leads him into a downward spiral. Through all of this, he continues to write prolifically, without dilution. This is the tale of two emerging nations, two faltering cities, and one man who tries to make sense of it all.

Uncle Jonathan is in fact a mediocre but well-intentioned warlock, while his next-door neighbor and good friend Florence Zimmerman is a far more powerful good witch. The house that Lewis has just moved into was previously owned by Isaac and Selena Izard. Before dying, this sinister couple had constructed a powerful clock that is hidden somewhere within the walls of the house where it ticks eternally, trying to pull the world into a magical alignment that would have permitted Isaac to bring about the end of the world. But the sleepy facade of Lewis’ new town jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis, wanting only to make a new friend and impress the popular Tarby Corrigan, attempts to raise the dead in the local cemetery on Halloween and succeeds in accidentally releasing Isaac Izard from his tomb. Things quickly go awry as the warlock’s ghost and a horde of fantastical creatures are soon unleashed to wreak destruction on the town.

Crazy Rich Asians follows the native New Yorker Rachel Chu as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young, to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.

 

It will be very interesting to see how both the movies perform at the box-office and how the clash of release will affect them. It will be a tough challenge for the audience also to decide which film to watch first.
