Munier worked as a cinematographer on many of Tarque Masud's films. He was the chief cinematographer of Tareque Masud’s Runway and was working on Kagojer Phool when he died. He extensively worked on conflict zones, natural disasters and political upheavals. He worked as the director of photography for Return to Kandahar (2003) and also as the cinematographer of Words of Freedom (1999).


Munier and Tareque Masud died on a road accident on August 13, 2011 at Ghior of Manikganj with three others including camera assistant Wasif and the driver. The accident took place when the microbus collided with another bus coming from the opposite direction. The team was returning from location scouting for Masud's next movie, Kagojer Phool, in Manikganj.

With Munier's death, the International War Crimes Tribunal lost a key witness, as he had been involved in compiling documents and audio-visual evidence for the investigation agency of the international war crimes tribunal of Bangladesh. Mishuk and his uncle, Shamser Choudhury, were the only two witnesses who saw his father Munier Choudhury being taken away by collaborators of the Pakistani occupation force on December 14, 1971. Mishuk was to be a witness for the International Crimes Tribunal formed in March 2010.
