About the project


The 80's cult film "Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai?" is back. But this time, with a modern day twist. This official remake of the iconic movie, made by Saeed Akhtar Mirza, explores the theme of personal and societal struggle in today's times.

What is the film about?

This movie revolves around Albert, who leaves his house one morning without telling anyone where he is going. His girlfriend Stella, his mother and his brother Dominic are worried about his safety. They file a missing person's complaint with the police and when he doesn’t return even after many days they begin to fear. The movie captures his journey in a series of flashbacks and conversations with the worldly-wise driver Nayar.

Why did Albert leave and why is he so angry? 

Albert’s anger stems from the experiences that life has presented to him – the personal injustice meted out to his father and the injustice inflicted on humanity at large. It is this anger that is taking him to Goa, to settle a score that he believes will relieve him of his helplessness and enable him to lead a life of dignity and hope.

Why am I making this movie?

The dream of an equal India is long dead. Despite the tremendous progress on the industrial and technological front, most people in the country are unhappy. There are stupendous price hikes, farmer suicides, the Naxal movement, the growing regionalism and factionalism; the onslaught of terrorism, questionable women's safety, the rural poverty and the urban stress, communalism, unrestrained corruption... the list is never ending. The film epitomizes all the anger these maladies trigger in the common man in contemporary India. For me Albert Pinto stands alone with his fervor for change and equality. He is the catalyst for transformation – from a despondent middle class, driven only by the ideology of the Rupee - to an angry class, which begins to ask questions and demand answers. Personally, the film is a culmination of a prolonged, despairing struggle. Like Albert Pinto says in the film, “it was as if a bulb had been broken inside my stomach”. The making of the film meant removing each and every little piece of glass carefully.

What is current status of the film and what is my execution plan?

The entire shooting of the movie is complete. Most of the sound post-production (sound design, background music, songs etc.) is complete too. We are currently finalizing our edit. The film uses a lot of animation and VFX, which is being executed simultaneously. We plan to finish the film by October 2015.

Why crowdfunding?

In the past 20 years I have independently produced projects funded by Doordarshan, Zee TV, Disney, Children’s Film Society of India, World Bank Washington, Channel 4 London, S4C Wales and many more. You can believe in me when I say that I will take the film to its logical end. Completion of the film is only half the job done. We believe a film is complete only when it sees the darkness of the auditoriums. We already have in place an innovative roadmap for its release. We want the film to reach its audience.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 500000 in Final Edit

Rs. 1000000 in Sound Post-production

Rs. 1000000 in Animation and VFX

Rs. 500000 in DI and Lab


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

Every project has its own share of risks and rewards. That being said, there has been a recent trend of small independent films making a huge impact, getting not only critical acclaim but also monetary gains. We have a great star cast and we have managed to keep our production budget extremely reasonable. We are confident that our project is on stable ground.

What happens when I don't raise enough money?

If we fall short of the 30 lakhs target, we will have to identify other independent sources that will fund the film. It is important for us to finish the film by October so that we can plan for an early release in 2016.

How am I going to prove that I won't just take all the money and run away?

If I was that kind of a person I wouldn’t be making a film like Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai? The film condemns the very corruption in our society and in our minds that this question insinuates.
