Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai? Review


The producers of Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai? released the trailer of the film on Friday. Written and directed by Soumitra Ranade (Jajantaram Mamantaram fame), it is the official remake of Saeed Akhtar Mirza's 1980 classic, starring Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi, and Smita Patil. Manav Kaul channels Naseeruddin Shah's Albert Pinto in the remake, with Nandita Das will play Shabana Azmi's Stella and Saurabh Shukla is playing Nayar.


The official synopsis says that the film "epitomizes the anger felt by the common man in contemporary India - in the face of continued political, social and cultural breakdown. Albert is angry at the hypocrisy and corruption. He is angry at the mammoth fraud on humanity. He is angry with the class, which rules the country. Above all, he is angry with himself - for being a powerless spectator." In the trailer, Albert goes on a road trip all of a sudden without any explanation or informing anyone.


Manav Kaul said about channeling veteran actor Shah's character: "It was a daunting task for me. The expectations are going to be high for when you are portraying a character which is still so relevant and is played by a much-loved actor like Naseer sir. I knew I had to portray Albert Pinto with a lot of respect, dignity and heart. It is a really special and iconic film but we are trying to show that story through a new perspective. We have made this film with a lot of hard work and honesty. It was exciting to work with Soumitra and Nandita."


Soumitra Ranade, talking about the film, said: "What changes is their milieu, their belief systems, and their worldview - as also does the plot. However, what remains constant is the disposition of Albert Pinto."


He further added: "I think India is angrier now than ever. It is angry against the system that has continually failed its people. With no real hope of change, this anger spills out brutally, either on news channels or through social media. If we suppress resistance, rebellion and revolt, the bottled-up anger of an entire nation will eventually explode sooner rather than later. The film echoes the voice of the people."


Nandita was emotionally attached to the story. She said: "I did it for nostalgia and for the director. Soumitra is one of the finest human beings I know and the journey of making Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai was made special because of his commitment and passion to the story he so wanted to tell."


Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai? is backed by a long list of names. Soumitra Ranade himself is the producer alongside Golden Ratio Films, Paperboat Design Studios, Templetree Motion Pictures, Vikram Saxena, Jagmeet Singh, Noopur Raje, Pinke Ankur Patel and No Guts No Glory Films.


Saeed Mirza's film was inspired by the director's own real-life experiences. The remake is scheduled to release in cinemas on 12th April.

The Verdict

It remains to be seen whether Soumitra Ranade's remake can live up to the cult classic status of Saeed Mirza's original film. Visually, the latest rendition looks dated in the trailer. The cast boasts of established actors like Manav Kaul, Nandita Sen, Saurabh Shukla, and Kishore Kadam who rarely fail to bring the best out of their roles. The success will majorly rely on the story and dialogues as direction seems to be lacking the touch that characterizes gritty, dark and realistic films of past and present. Manav Kaul is electrifying in the trailer which is the talking point.

3/5.
