Remembering The Brilliance Of Farooq Sheikh

Published on 25 March, 2017 at 11:48 pm By

Farooq Sheikh was a member of the old guard — back when good movies were labeled “art films”. His contribution to Hindi cinema can hardly be overstated. From the quiet neighbor, too poor to ever dream of being with the girl he loved, to the idealistic college student who lost his way and then found it again, to the Nawab who managed to look beyond gender identities and admire Umrao Jaan’s poetry for its sheer brilliance, Farooq Sheikh did it all.
