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 the conclusion is that it is a 'must watch' movie

Very unnatural performances by everyone except Victor Bannerjee. Overall a waste of time.

This is an anathema of a movie, not far displaced from the protagonists it displays. Touching, cruel and sad - a sterling ensemble lift up this rag tag story of tru-life Anglo-Indians.
