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 birth of hope in place of despair
29 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Yet another film from Anjan Dutta where the central part is the Anglo Indian Community of Kolkata, it tells their story that is Now.

The current changing scenario in Kolkata and the long wish of the Anglo Indian community to return to their root which has been told in many Indian Cinema...........The questions that come to mind are- what is the root? What will they identify as their root? The movie never left Bow Barracks except to show an accident. Yes the whole movie was made inside and just outside the building. The powerful and fast story never let us feel that.

Most of the characters did their job well, but above all the director Anjan Dutta impressed us as always. The style of revealing the angle of views of the characters of the same place, at the same time is really impressive.

As anymore writing can turn this comment to a spoiler..........so the conclusion is that it is a 'must watch' movie.
