    Manjunath movie review: Real story of the murder who left the nation angry and in grief
    Plot: Manjunath tells the nail-biting tale of the death of IOC marketing manager who was murdered for sealing a corrupt petrol station in Lakhimpur Kheri.

    It revolves around the real incident – the Manjunath death case of 2005. It is the story of the ruthless murder of a 27 year old which unveils some shocking facts about the oil mafia.

    Manjunath is a real life tragedy
    After his schooling at at Kendriya Vidyalaya, Kolar Gold Fields in Karnataka, Manjunath did MBA from the prestigious IIM Lucknow. While working for the Indian Oil Corporation, he discovered the active oil mafia and paid his price for raising the issue.
    He was shot on duty. Manjunath is the real tragedy which forces us to stand up against the rising corruption in India.
    Shocked and furious over the loss of the young marketing manager, several IIM, IIT and other students had set up "The Manjunath Shanmugam Trust".

    Acting
    Sasho Satish Sarthi effortlessly plays the role of Manjunath and makes the audience grieve for him. Seema Biswas has played a brilliant role of Manjunath’s mother. Divya Dutta and Yashpal Sharma have also justified their roles.
    Why to watch the film?

    There is no doubt Manjunath’s gruesome murder left the country in deep shock. But the film turns a bit lethargic. It seems more of a case study.

    Why not to watch?

    If you are looking for some weekend entertainment, then this may leave you worried and restless. But if you believe in watching real and meaningful cinema, this can be a good watch. The film has been made with a good purpose and touches the heart of the moviegoer.
