It’s impossible to talk about Indian cinema, without acknowledging the Bangla movies. The equivalents of Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, and Ritwik Ghatak themselves motivated by the cutting-edge cinema from around the world encouraged India to discover our awareness of cinema rooting their films in the grass root. In the process, they kindled a wave of culturally relevant films in the form of the lateral movement in Hindi films.

When it comes to art, language can never be a barrier. Hence, we’re listing 20 amazingly made Bangla movies that you should definitely watch:
