REVIEW: Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai - Too many themes unable to make a proper connection.


Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai made by Soumitra Ranade the director of the famous Jajantaram Mamantaram tries to capture many various elements fails to make an impact .



Albert Pinto (Manav Kaul) , a reckless and angry man leaves his house one morning without informing anyone . His girlfriend Stella (Nandita Das) files a complaint . But she doesnt know Albert is purposely traversing a road journey from Mumbai to Goa. Nayar (Saurabh Shukla ) accompanies him on his mission as a hitman basically as the one who inspects Albert's mission . In their sceptical, intelligent and disastrous conversations, we see Albert's flashbacks of a world where he and Stella try to live a proper life together. Albert's anger develops from experiences that life has presented to him. It is this anger that is taking him on a journey to mend everything so that he can live a life filled with hope and respect.



The movie is like a rebooted version of the old movie with the same name and origin which won lots of awards but this movie has expanded its vision. It tries to cover more points which make a society terrible but it clealy forgets to leave an impact because of the ineffective storytelling. The film tries to show the terrible condition of the nation. Though the film is showing many themes like greed , prostitution, corruption , pedophilia, murder but still it isn't able to catch one particular theme properly. The movie is jumping in between alternate themes but coming back to the same point and condition again. The film is very random and thus covering such serious topics looks like an overdose to the script.


Manav Kaul , Saurabh Shukla and Nandita Das did a great job. The direction of the film is weak at some places and could have taken a clever rather authentic approach. Script is weak, some dialogues do not suit the events happening in the movie at all. Cinematography is good at some places, some travelling shots are taken brilliantly and the dark setting of the background looks good but is a bit too much for the narrative.

Music didn't have much role to play in this one and whatever background music it had made the experience of the film more bad.


Overall, the film has good intentions but failed to make an impact.


Acting - 3.5 / 5.

Direction - 2.5 / 5.

Script - 2 / 5.

Cinematography - 2.5 / 5.

Music - 1.5 / 5.


Final Verdict - 2.5 / 5.


Watch it if you don't have any other option.
