List of highest-grossing Bengali films

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of highest-grossing Bengali-language films. This list covers the Bengali cinema in India.

West Bengal film industry

The Bengali film industry is centered in the Tollygunge neighborhood of the city of Kolkata, West Bengal, and has been known by the nickname Tollywood, a portmanteau of the words Tollygunge and Hollywood, since 1932.[1] West Bengal was the center of Indian cinema in the 1930s,[1] with Bengali cinema accounting for a quarter of India's film output in the 1950s.[2] A 2014 report stated that while there were about 100 films created in Bengali every year, fewer than ten percent were breaking even financially.[3]

Madhava Prasad traces the origin of the term to a 1932 article in the American Cinematographer by Wilford E. Deming, an American engineer who apparently helped produce the first Indian sound picture. At this point, the Calcutta suburb of Tollygunge was the main centre of film production in India. Deming refers to the area as Tollywood, since it already boasted two studios with 'several more projected' (Prasad, 2003) 'Tolly', rhyming with 'Holly', got hinged to 'wood' in the Anglophone Indian imagination, and came to denote the Calcutta studios and, by extension, the local film industry. Prasad surmises: 'Once Tollywood was made possible by the fortuitous availability of a half-rhyme, it was easy to clone new Hollywood babies by simply replacing the first letter' (Prasad, 2003).From Cinema of India: Sarkar, Bhaskar (2008).
