After Uttam bengali films has lost its charm, there is no story line, overacting by these actor and bengali films have restricted to only Tapas Pal and Presenjit bengali films have degraded in quality in earlier days they were par or better than hindi films but now a day bengali flim industry has degraded a lot
Soumitra Chattopadhyaya was still in his prime. Even during Uttam's reigh, Soumitra was not regarded second to him. And there are others who could do very well although in sheer acting talent nobody in Bengali film industry could match Soumitra or Utpal Dutta. It is commercialization that is bringing down the quality or they are aping Bollywood.
