Mostofa Sarwar Farooki Biography

Farooki's body of work address such themes as middle class angst, urban youth romance, deception-hypocrisy and frailty of individual, frustration about own culture and
conservative Muslim concepts of guilt and redemption.

He is widely considered to be one of the most brilliant and influential movie maker of contemporary Bangladesh. He, along with his fellow filmmaker from chabial, has created a new genre of Bangladeshi films that are completely different from traditional theatrical melodrama. Stylistically his works have a documentary feel that sometimes takes a poetic look.

Farooki is a self made film-maker. In an interview, he jokingly mentioned the following :
I am a student of World University of Mistakes. My mistakes are my teacher.

As he never studied in film-making or never got the opportunity to assist any director, he has been learning by doing it himself. He is inspired by Abbas Kiarostami, Wong Kar-wai, Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Robert Bresson, Andrei Tarkovsky and some other filmmakers.
