Bangladesh and West Bengal (India), have been severed into two different political entities for many years now, but the two Bengals share unique ties through language, songs, literature, and other cultural aspects. Both the countries have a huge talent bank in the cultural field from either side of the border. The political incision, albeit irreparable, finds a creative and cultural foil and attempt at harking back to the common yet different culture at the core of the two nations. A substantial number of Bengali films have been made, pooling the talents from Indian and Bangladesh to foster healthy cultural solidarity of sorts, cutting through national boundaries. And, several such films have been very successful projects at the box office too.
Here we list 5 films where creators and performers from both countries have transcended political divisions to unite and culturally collaborate for the cause of cinema, contributing very significantly to the overall success of the films.
