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 ...

The worst film I've seen....EVER.
30 July 2007 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

Be warned! This is not a film...its a collection of bad actors. It boggles my mind how anyone can ever make such a bad film. The worst acting I've ever seen.

Nice cinematography, good grading. Good location. Thats pretty much the only thing good about this film. The music is terrible. Sound design is non-existent. Clayton Rodgers (Bradly Lobo) is the worst actor to have appeared on screen. He makes a 5 year old school play actor look like an Academy award nominee. I hate my friends for making me sit through this 'film'. Its a painful 118 mins....right from the first scene till the last. Its a pointless ramble that goes nowhere. I don't know what the director is trying to show through this film.
