My Rating

  • Alo Amar Alo rating: 3 out of 10(rahul sengupta wrote on 11 Apr 2009)

    Presented by Charu Chitra, ”Alo Amar Alo” depicts the cynic, masochist & voyeuristic attitude of a man & how he overcomes it. Quantitatively, this film can’t boast of something overwhelming in it. Neither the screenplay, nor the camera has offered anything new. The narration is slow, monologues & rigid, making the film painful at times. The background score also lets down. Pinaki Mukherjee’s direction becomes too predictable & his screenplay does not arrest the audience barring a few occasions. The songs sung by Manna Dey & Sumitra Sen are melodious. Pulak Bandopadhyay provides lucrative lyrics while there are some well known Rabindrasangeets to go with. The audiography won the B.F.J.A. award, though it can’t be labelled as “great” for this film. Suchitra Sen also won the Best Actress’ award from B.F.J.A. for this film. The only silver lining in this film is the relentless performance of Uttam Kumar. With vivid facial expressions & diverse emotions, the Mahanayak is at his menancing best. Bikash Roy, Jahar Roy, Kanu Banerjee & Mrinal Mukherjee also give in some able support. The film became a hit for the Uttam-Suchitra star value. But “Alo Amar Alo” can’t be rated an inch above “ordinary”. The song “EI ETO AALO, ETO AAKASH…” became a hit.
