I am trying to learn some Bengali, and for me the best way to learn is through watching Bengali movies. My partner and I watched Mach, Mishti, and More last night, as well as The Bong Connection the other night. We are looking for some recommendations--preferably some with a little more comedy or action. What are your favorite Bong movies?

Oh it's nice to see someone eager to learn Bengali. Well I think I can help you a great deal in this coz I happen to be a Bengali myself and I am from West Bengal, India. Lets start with this, can you rephrase the following Bengali line in English? Tomar naam ki? Tumi kothai thako? I hope you'll figure it out easily

Cheech and Chong: Up in Smoke is a good bong movie. Pineapple Express and Grandma's Boy are two other good bong movies I can think of. I hope this helps.

I think you are correct on the other meaning of "bong". However, I am referring to Bengali/Bangla. Thanks for your comment!

Thanks for the advice. There might be better ways to learn the language, but right now I am not trying very intensely. I like to be entertained while I learn! :)
