The glyphs in the Bengali range in Serif (especially auxiliary glyphs) have far too many nodes, and consequently have very rough contours. Also, the stem width seems quite uneven.

There is a more recent release of the original font, SolaimanLipi, but it doesn't addrees this issue. Also it is SIL-licensed, so I don't think it can be used without special permission. Wrote to author, Solaiman Karim. Have not heard back.
