Tarun Majumder turns the famous Bibhutibhushan story into a good film ornamented mellifluously with Tagorean songs fitting perfectly to every occasion in the film. A slow & silent, but rapid & vigorous, attraction resulting in love binds Alo & Subha in the mesh of matrimony after they surmount the major challenge of Alo's staying at Subha's native village after marriage. And, hereafter unfolds the stunning idiosyncratic changes of the village people after they come in contact with Alo in whatever way possible, deliberately or unknowingly. Alo becomes their most prized possession; rather an idol of adoration. In the end of the film she seems to be an intangible entity that flows along with the breeze spreading crystallized melody & fellow-feeling among the villagers. She truly stands up to the meaning of her name: Alo. She bathes the village- denizens & us in a light bordering on a halo.
