Director Statement

The “Ghum Ghum Ghum” song is the primary ingredient of the award-winning feature film “A Father’s Diary” which depicts a tale of a conservative father, Hassan Ali, who rejects and burns into the inferno when he discovers the unconventional and boundlessness love of his adorable daughter with neighbor’s daughter and even within his wife which leads into big domestic violence and huge drama to the family.

The audience will be treated in this song to the contrasting beauty of Bangladesh and Canada, and to the heart-touching song “Ghum Ghum Ghum” composed by the Shantiniketan team and written by Mustofa specifically for the beautiful Alalpur location and his mother’s love.

It was my remarkable experience and great privilege writing the lyrics, designing the song concept, and spotting notes along with my talented Composers, Instrumentalists, and virtually working with all the gifted vocalists around the globe on daily basis.

Filmmaking and songwriter rules are not written in stone, rather it’s an art that ought to be boundless as demonstrated throughout filmmaking history by building the rule, setting up the benchmark, and breaking the conventional rules; in this project, we looked and experimented outside of the box and intentionally crossed so many traditional lines to establish some new perspectives of filmmaking which the viewers may experience. Our endeavors will truly be successful once the song catches the viewers' attention!
