BADSHAHAT KA KHATMA By Saadat Hassan Manto. Badshahat Ka Khatma is the story of a man by the name of Manmohan (Ziaul Hasan). He practically lives on a footpath. As the story begins he is seen in a friend’s office where he is supposed to spend some time. He chances upon a novel whose last few pages are missing. One day he receives a call from a woman (Kaif Ghaznavi). Initially he finds the caller an ordinary person. After the second call they start developing a romantic relationship. Throughout this period he doesn’t try to know the name of the woman. Gradually he falls for her and yearns to listen to her voice on a regular basis. When she doesn’t call, he gets irritated. He even starts hallucinating about her.
