Though 2018 was not a great year for Bengali cinema, there were still enough brave attempts and a few exceptional stories.
The year 2018 has been an average one for Bengali cinema. While a newcomer like Soukarya Ghosal earned critical appreciation and box-office success with his low-budget independent film Rainbow Jelly, established directors such as Srijit Mukherji and Kaushik Ganguly only found disappointment with their much hyped Ek Je Chhilo Raja and Kishore Kumar Junior.
Then there was the re-emergence of thrillers like Jojo and Bidaay Byomkesh and a few paranormal films like Kuasha Jokhon and Flat No 609 that did not impress either the masses or the critics.
But it was not a totally dismal year either and we have picked some of the brave attempts and a few exceptional stories from the lot. Here, then, is Cinestaan’s list of the best Bengali films of 2018, and why they are worth watching. Tell us what you think of our selection.
