Agent Vinod Movie Review
Rating: 2/5 (Two stars)
Star cast: Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Prem Chopra, Dhritiman Chatterji, Aadil Hussain, Ram Kapoor, Shahbaaz Khan, Zakir Hussain.
What’s Good: The action sequences; the stylized cinematography; the snappy editing.
What’s Bad: The ordinary story; the unnecessarily confusing script; the lack of an emotional connection between the audience and the protagonist; the absence of chemistry between Saif and Kareena’s characters; the laughable climax.
Verdict: Agent Vinod is a bold experiment gone wrong; certainly not something that entertains in its entirety.
Loo break: A couple.
Watch or Not?: Watch it only if you want to see an Indian spy movie. But be warned that it comes nowhere closer to the Bond or the Bourne series of Hollywood films.
Agent Vinod Synopsis: The story begins with a series of seemingly unconnected events, all over the globe. In Uzbekistan, an ex KGB Officer is tortured and murdered. In Cape Town, a group of international business tycoons discuss a rumor that the dead KGB Officer had a nuclear suitcase bomb hidden away. In Moscow, an Indian secret agent is exposed. The agent is shot dead while trying to send a code red message to India. In India, the head of RAW sees the incomplete message. All it contains is a number 242.
Enter Agent Vinod. Vinod (Saif Ali Khan) is the kind of agent who first kicks the door open and then finds out what’s behind it. His unconventional approach puts him in dangerous situations but he manages to get the crucial leads. Vinod is sent to Moscow to investigate why his colleague was killed.
Vinod leaves for Moroccco, where he meets an elderly mafiosi Kazan and the beautiful but mysterious Dr Ruby. A series of twists and turns take Vinod across the globe from Marrakesh to Riga, Karachi to Delhi and finally London, where he discovers the ultimate conspiracy.
