I have a 15 months nephew. He seems so angry these days and very emotional (crying and shouting) what can we do? And is there any physilogical cause?

In brief: Tantrums?

The only way to see if there's a medical cause is to see his doctor. He may be having tantrums.
Often, kids act out to get attention, even negative attention;withdrawing attention from the misbehavior (i.e., timeouts) & giving positive attention for good behavior helps. Distracting your child when you see misbehavior start can head it off, too. Ensure he doesn't get overtired or famished.

In brief: Possibly

This is not normal for a 15mo.
Something is clearly bothering him and a helping professional with experience with young children should be seen.
