Critic reviews and ratings

  • While the film drives home the point of helplessness and latent anger simmering inside an average middle class man, director Soumitra Ranade’s screenplay does go off key at times. Even with a running time of just over 90 minutes, the pace slackens.

    Critic rating (?)

  • This film may not be on par with the work that inspired it, but it does have enough to say to justify its existence.

  • ...this remake offers an interesting take on the original. A little more care would have made it a far better film.

    Critic rating (?)

  • While this movie hits hard with several strengths – convincing performances and an interesting storyline – it will certainly elicit comparisons with the much-beloved original. In these comparisons, it does come up short.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the film does establish its boundaries and ruffle feathers if you watch the film in the right spirit.

  • At times, he takes the easy way out by over writing, and in places, Albert lets you lose your grip on the flow. But, nobody can deny that Ranade's effort is sincere and honest. Above all, it is bold and tries to waken us all up with a loud call against corruption and other forms of evil.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...demands a great deal of patience and leaves you dissatisfied with the modern revision.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...labours hard to be metaphoric and of significance.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...made with crowdfunding and good intentions but it never comes near where it wants to go.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has an anti-establishment heart, but because of the somewhat outdated execution, it falls flat as a two-hour watch.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Ranade’s Albert Pinto Ko… is only interested in expressing its gussa. And that made me gussa.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...promises much, but lives up to its covenant feebly.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • This “conceptual remake” could have used less concept, more thought on why they were remaking the earlier film in the first place.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...settling for a mediocre thriller which can’t keep up with its characters — or their indignation.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • The original had a protagonist whose raving and ranting, whose very being the way he was, was alive to the moment. This fully superfluous remake will only make you angry.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • The narrative meanders pointlessly, as a bizarre background score plays on noisily and the climax feels just as needlessly knotty. The film would have actually been better titled as Albert Pinto Ki Ajeeb Dastaan.
