      Audience Member Finally got the DVD from Flipkart, here another Anjan Dutta's movie. Anyways, the movie about.... 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 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member 2 stars only for Victor Banerjee and Lillette Dubey... :| Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A thoughtful different movie, interesting perspective Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member awsum flick...it 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 safe the heritage building..the bow barrack building..their home intact..!! an amazin blend of emotions has been used in the muvee..a must wtch for all kolkatans..

      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Bow Barracks, an enclave of Anglo Indians in Calcutta, in danger of collapse. A way of life, rich, varied, and multi-cultural, on the verge of eclipse. Anjan Dutt's idea, to capture it all, is nice; the execution much less so. Jun 5, 2019 Full Review Namrata Joshi Outlook Shrill and hysterical-these are the words that immediately come to mind in describing Bow Barracks Forever. Rated: 1/4 Jan 25, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
