Saif Ali Khan may have absent blue hard denying the rumors that his 'Vinod' is just like iconic British criminal 007, but 30 minutes in the film and also you start expecting the desi secret agent to acquire a 'vodka martini-shaken, not stirred'.
The film also begins in the same vodka vein like all the Bond films with an action packed series that presents the character, as well as the outlet credits Sriram Raghavan was confident given 2 side of the seat thrillers in past times with 'Ek Hasina Thi' and 'Johnny Gaddar' however his newest providing 'Agent Vinod' seems to drop a bit less than the tag, however the film is obviously worth a due to the exotic locations and amazing performance.
Saif Ali Khan performs a RAW agent called Vinod, including a gruff but paternal leader a'la 'M' and also a secretary such as Miss Moneypenny, who our agent flirts with harmlessly during his approach to the boss's cabin. After Vinod's friend and friend Rajan (Ravi Kissen) may get harmed when operating undercover for the Russia structured gang led by Abu Nisar (Ram Kapoor), the smart Vinod leads to look at the killing in order to find out what '242' (a top secret code unveiled by Rajan minutes previous to dying) means.
The research activates Vinod on a globe trotting mission from Europe to Morocco to Pakistan as well as to Delhi, in which the RAW agent suits up a useful mixture of people from Kazan (Prem Chopra), a shady entrepreneur, Ruby Mendes (Kareena Kapoor), a elegant Pakistani doctor using a dark past with a fake Pakistani colonel (Shahbaz Khan) in cahoots with a few dubious characters hell tendency on perpetrating a atomic disaster.
The relaxation from the movie follows Vinod because he kicks and punches his way with the criminals to avert a nuclear disaster right in the middle of New Delhi. Unknown bad guy is transporting a backpack full of a nuclear device within the capital and our hero must race against time for you to identify and prevent him prior to it being past too far. Now, everyone has seen George Clooney do this as Colonel Thomas Devoe in 'The Peacemaker' and also the 4g iphone hour from the movie will certainly restore reminiscences from the Clooney-Nicole Kidman flick.
The noticeable distinction between Vinod and Bond appears to become the truth that the previous does not mattress a few women within the film (maybe because our Vinod should be the real Indian hero with traditional values). Indeed, the awesome spy falls for Kareena's character and also proposes marriage in the center of a gun fight.
Furthermore, the plot moves from nation to nation with your immense speed the viewer is certain to get disoriented sooner or later of your time. Vinod battles bearded 'jihadis' in Afghanistan and minutes later is slaughtering the security officers of the Russian arms dealer inside a classy club in Riga before landing in The other agents to pursue another lead.
However, credit is because of the backdrop score also to Raghavan's directorial genius because he tips his hat to everybody from Bud Spencer to the initial 'Agent Vinod' actor Mahendra Sandhu to spaghetti Western 'The Good, Unhealthy and Also the Ugly'. The cinematography also warrants a special mention and thus performs the supporting cast of stars like Prem Chopra, Ram Kapoor, Ravi Kissen, Zakir Hussain and Adil Hussain, who manage their parts well. Kareena Kapoor does not really reach do much within the movie because it is Saif who rules nearly every frame, though sometimes, he appears confused between playing the smart-cracking awesome spy and also the no-nonsense, serious government official who does not have enough time to prevent and take a break.
On the other hand, just about all said and done, 'Agent Vinod' is obviously really worth an enjoy for those thrill fans around, who've been awaiting a advanced Sriram Raghavan item... A thing of warning though-Don't expect the delightful thrills of an 'Ek Hasina Thi' or 'Johnny Gaddar' here...
