hello dear Fortunately, there seems to be lot of new translations (into English--I don't know about other langs.)  being done--of the old masters (e.g. Tarashankar, Bibhutibhushan, Saradindu, Ashapurna, some prose of Jibanananda, Bimal Mitra) and also of some contemporary authors (Bani Basu, Suchitra Bhattacharya etc)
...........Actually havent read any of those translated version those in bengali only.......but got some absolutely gushing review from some of my friends

bengali novels are one of the most classic ones and they have adapted by most of the filmmakers today...
i too read them being devdas of sharatchandra chattopadhyay/..he writes exceptionally wel!!! his writings are the most...cherishable ones in bengali..though i am a punjabi..i understand bengali to quite an extent..!! but his hindi translated works are well...comendable..!! and nt just devdas...many other too!!
