Cinema is the most complex and powerful art form in the present world. It can help us to better understand our own lives, the lives of those around us and even how our society and culture operate.

Even in the emergence of Bangladesh students had the most aggressive involvement .Our students were always aware about the society, it's people, our culture. In the present world of globalization everything is getting available, easier and close in contact. Cultural exchange were never fast before as it is right now. Technology, cultural phenomena, ethical views are changing not in every day, but in every second now. In this context i started my research on the relation of film and university students of Bangladesh. For different causes students don't go to cinema halls to watch Bengali movie, they watch it in computer now and for the technology like television and internet they are coming on the close contact of foreign(like Indian and western ) ethics, rituals and culture, which certainly has some impact on them. Conducting research on several public and private universities it's clear that this influence has both negative as well as positive side. Students are conscious about their cultural diffusion and interchange. By analysing the trend, attitude, lifestyle and outlook about life of the university students it could be said that there is a certain influence o f films on university students of Bangladesh.
