Ram Gopal Bajaj,
If you watch this movie with the hope that it will unravel some secret aspect of Albert's life to you which will explain all his anger, then you're setting yourself up for disappointment. This movie is not about the person Albert Pinto, but rather its a socio-political statement on middle-class life in Mumbai during the 70s. In some ways, there is no plot. Its a sketch of family ups and downs, mostly downs. But its a very honest and terse sketch. Lots of good actors and realistic acting in the movie give it a very non-filmy feel. I specially liked the characterization of the women - played by Shabana and Smita. Very strong and opinionated and hardy. I suppose that the broad message of the movie is that the average man in those days was generally speaking angry because society holed him into only that slot.
