The year 2017 has been very successful for Irrfan Khan with his movies making the mark in Bollywood as well as in international cinema.
Irrfan Khan’s latest international venture, Mostafa Farooki’s Doob- No bed of roses recently had its world premiere at the Shanghai Film Festival and now was just screened at the 39th Moscow International Film Festival. It has already managed to grab appreciation much before it’s commercial release worldwide. The film has also been awarded the prestigious Kommersant award which is given by a jury headed by Andrei Plakhov, Honorary President, International Federation of Film Critics.
The film and Irrfan’s performance has earned a great response from the audience. Hollywood Reporter also gave out the first international review of the film and appreciated the actor saying “It takes an actor of Irrfan Khan’s stature and magnetism to turn an intimate separation drama into something special, and a writer-director like Bangladesh’s happy maverick Mostofa Sarwar Farooki to layer on subtleties and shades of meaning with realistic detachment that never slips into melodrama.”
When asked Mostofa about this film he said, “Making No Bed of Roses was literally a no bed of roses for me. But I am very happy to see top international critics’ warm reviews of the film and I have almost forgotten all the troubles we went through. Now I am waiting for the film to release and reach its audience as soon as possible. “
