Storyline

Bow Barracks Forever is a film about the triumph of the human spirit. It is not easy to fight back the march of progress. And progress brings with it change-change that is often painful, that breaks continuity, that destroys tradition, history, the power and the passion of communities that have lived and grown together over decades. Anjan Dutt's film, simple, powerful, almost pleading for hope, captures the real life story of a tiny but resolute Anglo Indian community right in the heart of bustling north Kolkata trying desperately to keep alive its hopes, dreams, aspirations-and its identity, as the world around them changes swiftly and tries to impose that change on them and their lives. It is a tale of heart breaking loneliness and immense courage. It is a film we are proud to put out. For we, as a production house, believe that film makers like Anjan Dutt not only challenge us to look at life differently but also tell us apocryphal tales about brave, lonely people who fight their ...

Good plot but bad treatment
25 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Well another good attempt by Anajan Dutta. The set is original and beautiful. The camera was excellent, powerful actors like Lilette Dubey, Victor Banerjee, Sabyasachi Chakraborty. Till now every thing seems to be good. But personally I think the script was very weak and the direction was not up-to the standard. New comers like Clayton Rodgers is a horrible actor without any expression. Other than that misuse/forceful inclusion of intimate scenes seems to be very important to the parallel Bengali films. Without this a film is not considered to be complete. But even that is not portrayed nicely. Specially the scene where Clayton Rodgers (Bradly Lobo) is shown with his underwear falling off after having sex with Anne (Neha Dubey). This was very funny to me. Either show him null naked or do not show anything. Either be bold and brave or do not attempt. Better not to be hypocrite.

Overall good to watch once.
