Jalsha Movies is a Bangla (Bengali)-language movie channel from the Star network in India. Launched on 12 August 2011, a few months after Zee Bangla Cinema, it is the only Bengali movie channel to be available in HD. It is named after Star Jalsha, Star’s Bengali general entertainment channel. Other Bengali movie channels, besides Zee Bangla Cinema, include Sony Aath and Colors Bangla Cinema.
The channel is styled as Jalsha Movies, never as Star Jalsha Movies, in contrast to the Telugu Star Maa channels, which are referred to using the Star prefix despite their logos not having the Star wordmark.
Jalsha Movies was the first Star channel to use Kohinoor as its on-screen typeface after it became Star’s primary corporate font in 2011 (with Cádiz complementing it since 2016). In recent years, more and more Star channels have started to use it in their on-air branding, such as Star Utsav, Star Vijay, Star Plus and—since 2019—Star Jalsha itself. For the latter two channels, the previous font had been Fedra Sans Alternate.
An HD feed was launched on 14 September 2013. After Star Jalsha HD, Jalsha Movies HD was Launched in 14 September 2013. This was the second regional-language HD movie channel to be launched in India, after the Tamil channel KTV HD in 2009. Star also launched an HD feed of Telugu channel Star Maa Movies in 2017.
