1980’s cult Saeed Akhtar Mirza’s film, APKGKAH has been remade with Manav Kaul in the lead role. In the original film, Naseeruddin Shah had played the role of Albert Pinto. The film is directed by Soumitra Ranade and also stars Nandita Das and Saurabh Shukla. The film is set to be released on April 12. The original film also starred Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil in prominent roles. That film went on to win the Filmfare Critics and Best film award. In the recent trend of making remakes like Ittefaq (1996) and Pati Patni Aur Woh (1978), this one is the latest to join the troop. The film is a story  about an angry mechanic, Albert Pinto, who harbours the ideal that hard work trumps all. Only when his father’s mill shuts down and he  is threatened for protesting , does Albert realise the truth and power of capitalism.
