Agent Vinod – Movie Review



Well, first things first. I liked this movie even though I have read too much critical reviews of it, some even criticising the way of director’s treatment.

Saif and his aide, played by Ravi Kishan ~ Major Rajan, try to hunt down terrorists and have some information about the activities going on their minds. Rajan is captured and killed when he comes to know about a device called 242.

We come to know that Saif is a RAW agent named Agent Vinod and takes on his own to discover a nuclear and portable – explosive device referred to as 242 most of the times, which can be unlocked by a book from the old days. Iram – the character played by Kareena is a UK based Pakistani girl, who is working for the ISI chief – unknown to the other people of the same organisation, elsewhere.

The globe trotting adventure takes us to places not seen in so many numbers in a Bollywood movie, where the couple, sometimes playing on the same side, sometimes against each other decide to take down the revenge on the masterminds behind the plot.

The direction is good, story is fast paced, but the narrative would have been much better is the characters were less as well as the places this movie has been shot. Viewers have to take into consideration – the above factors. 

Music is good, though Pritam has been caught many a times for lifting the music.

Overall a nice watch if you like the likes of Bond or Bourne or MI series.  Saif tries to rescue the film from the nasty plot but this could have been much better if movie was edited as per its Hollywood’s counterparts.

      Saif has a nice persona and this role required his Royal touch too. I am following Bond series from Pierce Brosnan’s days, Mission Impossible and The Bourne series are must watch anyways. Somehow Bollywood lacks in these kind of movies even if we have stars to portray larger than life characters but no actor to play a mean Action Hero with gray shades. Don2 was tried in that way, i guess – but wasn’t that satisfying somehow.
