Box Office Report of Bengali films in year 2015-2016

Bengali film industry is passing through very tough time. In year 2014-2015, the condition was worst. In year 2015-2016, more than 100 Bengali films were released but the box office situation is unaltered. What is the future of the industry? As per record, nearly 110 Bengali films were released during January 2015 to March 2016.  Among the films, film Belaseshe of Shiboprosad Mukhopadhyay and Nandita Roy has recorded good box office business. The film Belaseshe was a 1 Crore 10 lakhs movie and box office collection of the film was nearly 6.5 crore.

 Among the detective films, Ebar Shabar of Arindam Shil did good box office business. Anindya Chottopadhyay’s debut film Open T Bioscope also succeeded in box office. Among the typical commercial movies, Jamai 420 and Besh Korechi Prem Korechi of Jeet – Koel pair have done good business.

 During Durga Puja 2015, total six Bengali films were released and this never happed before. Srijit Mukherjee’s Rajkahini, Anjan Dutta’s Byomkesh Bokshi, Raj Chakraborty’s Kathmundu, Sudhu Tomari Jonyo of Birsa Dasgupta, Cross Connection 2 of Abhijit Roy and Sudeshna Roy were released during last year Durga Puja.  All the films were box office hit with Rajkahini and Byomkesh on the front line. Another important point is that in the last one year, remake films failed in Bengali film industry. Last year was not very productive for mainstream films also excepting Jamai 420 and Besh Korechi Prem Korechi. Many Bengali film producers are interested in Indo-Bangladesh joint production films to capture the Bangladesh market and this may help Bengali films to survive.
Let’s hope that in 2016, Bengali film industry will be abale to find the right path.
