Agent Vinod Movie Review


Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site: IBNLive (CNN IBN)

For a large portion of Agent Vinod, you don’t know where things are going…and then it all stretches on so needlessly that you stop caring. Given that this is a film that sees itself as a desi-style Bond, it has glaring loopholes that are embarrassing. The action in the film is choreographed slickly, but you can’t help feeling a tad let down. In these days of visceral fight scenes and breathless chases that you’re accustomed to seeing in the Bourne, Bond, and Mission Impossible movies, the rapid editing of the action sequences here never allows you to take in the repercussions of the violence. What cripples the film even further is its uneven pacing.I’m going with two out of five for Agent Vinod. He’s a spy who knows how to save the day; he just needs a better plan.

One expects AGENT VINOD to be an elegantly defined story with an exquisitely structured screenplay  with some unanticipated betrayals, sensational locations, slick action but with the absence of gadgets. If that's precisely the way you are looking at AGENT VINOD unleashing before your eyes, you've got it right. Contrasting the spy movies made in Bollywood, this one's truly bona fide and swanks of a pertinent plotline. An ambitious script, set in various countries, AGENT VINOD is by far the most credible secret agent movie made in Bollywood. This hi-octane thriller has style and substance, both! On the whole, AGENT VINOD is a hi-octane espionage thriller with a heart. It is not just brawny and dynamic, but witty and crazy too. Ultra slick and stylish, this desi Bond movie adheres to the formula and succeeds in meeting the humungous expectations. AGENT VINOD has all the potential to develop into a triumphant franchise!

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.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.

If only Agent Vinod were a video game. It has all the hallmarks of a classicSo yes, as a game it'd be sensational, and tremendous fun. As a film, on the other hand, Agent Vinod must be termed a disappointment, a slick and well-produced throwback to the spy thriller that feels both overlong and under-conceived. Agent Vinod wants to be funny, and while there is the occasional burst of wit, it's exhaustingly rare. Agent Vinod may be the best looking actioner we've seen, and Sriram Raghavan may be a unanimous choice to hold the joystick, but watching him play this particular game shows him distracted by the window dressing -- and not trying hard enough to save the princess.

Agent Vinod is also attempting to be too many things - a slick thriller to match Hollywood but also a cheeky homage to cheesy Bollywood movies. So the film has gloss and fast-paced action but the villains are a throwback to the 1980s - after all, how seriously can you take Gulshan Grover in a white suit or Prem Chopra with a ponytail or Shahbaz Khan with one glass eye?.The result is that Agent Vinod never becomes more than the sum of its parts and even though it picks up speed in the second half, it leaves you both exhausted and unsatisfied. But I enjoyed the character of Agent Vinod. If he does get a sequel, I hope he has a better narrative to romp in.

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:IANS Site:NDTV

Agent Vinod is not quite the overwhelming experience that you would want a global espionage thriller to be. More thoughtful than thundering, more la Carre and less Bond it nonetheless take the spy genre in Hindi to a new level of finesse. Finally, the cool quotient in Raghavan's chic spin on the espionage thriller is so high that you forget Bond and all his bloody brothers.

Ratings:1/5 Reviewer:Kunal Guha Site: Yahoo
Despite miraculous leaps in production values, spy thrillers in Bollywood end up looking like Chinese equivalents of western products. And here, the characters are even stereotyped to the extent of detectives wearing trench coats and moles being obvious, shifty-eyed and literally uncomfortable in their own skin. So let’s just say foreign locales, weapons to annihilate the world, designer suits and not-so-excruciating interrogations don’t cumulatively justify ‘Agent Vinod’ as a thrilling movie-watching experience.

The first 40 minutes of the film are intriguing and simultaneously confusing. It is bifurcated into sub-plots, which add adventure to the story. But, the flip side is that some sequences look completely illogical.Brilliant performances, dialogues, cinematography and innovative screenplay are the strengths. A slightly confusing direction, misleading music at some points with no relevance to the theme are the weak points.On the whole, Agent Vinod is not a flawless venture, but if you are hungry for experimental cinema, this is the movie to die for.

Agent Vinod had massive potential though. Some dialogues sparkle, and the film is slicker than most Bollywood films that claim to be stylish action thrillers.Sriram Raghavan’s Agent Vinod is brilliant in bits, and incredibly asinine in others. It’s probably the most inconsistently good film I’ve watched lately, and a massive letdown. Which is a pity. It could have made for a rare, looked-forward-to franchise.

All of that is acceptable as long as the intended espionage thriller has an inventive storyline. But after a world tour across half a dozen countries, the film culminates with a traditional climax where the Indian capital faces a nuclear-threat. The time bomb has to be detected, decoded and deactivated.The film starts with an interesting prologue in Afghanistan and ends with a witty epilogue in London. How we wish the globetrotting in between was as much compelling. The film is entertaining but not in entirety. Agent Vinod gets the nod though not whole-heartedly!

'Agent Vinod’ starts on a promising note in Afghanistan where a Vinod is trapped by at a Lashkar hideout. He along with his team member Rajan Gandhi (Ravi Kissen) find a way out of it with bullet firing and bombings. The movie has traces of the Bond series, Raghavan’s ‘Ek Hasina Thi’, Anubhav Sinha’s ‘Dus’ and Mani Shankars’ ’16 December’. The film has a few moments that are really good and you want them to stay but the graph isn’t stable and has its ups and downs. The film also had a number of loopholes, with unexplained situations, wasted actors and so on. Plus points: Few camera angles, a few dialogues, Saif and Bebo’s chemistry and ofcourse, Ram Kapoor (you can practically watch the movie for him)

  3. The most horrible movie I have seen this year...I thought that mausaam last year was a disaster...this is even bigger....

    The writer of the script is mad....not clear about what he wants to say through the story...

    Director is kiddish in the way the whole movie specially the second half is filmed...

    Imagine how stupid to show kareeena breaking a building glass after being badly shot...and even funnier is she is standing about half a kilometer away and people r able to hear her....is she born with mike in her vocal chord

    The dialogues between saifeena wen saif is driving the helicopter with the bomb show the immaturity of he writer and director...

    At time karrena looks uninterested in the movie..may be doing the film for the sake of it...

    The climax about the way the actual terrorist group comes to know who the real person behind the blasts is extremely kiddish...

    Please people grow up...I think the director, the writer need to do some course and may be open their eyes to realize people how people act in life...

    Stupid movie

    ReplyDelete
  41. UTTER NONSENSE..AGENT VINOD IS UNDOUBTEDLY ONE OF THE MOST STYLISH FILMS OF 2012,BUT IT IS THE SUBSTANCE,WHICH IS ABSENT IN THE FILM.
    IN 2013 AGENT VINOD MAY DOMINATE THE GOLDEN KELA AWARDS,IT WILL WIN WORST FILM,DIRECTOR,ACTOR,ACTRESS
    IN MY OPINION,THE WORST ONSCREEN JODI WILL BE AWARDED TO SAIFEENA

    ReplyDelete
  42. SAIF PLEASE GIVE MY MONEY BACK, THE MOST HORRIBLE MOVIE I HAVE AWARE SEEN, PLEASE WATCH KAHAANI INSTEAD

    ReplyDelete
  47. Watch at your risk..its a crap...the score limit of Taran Adarsh is 4-5. Worst movie will get 4 or 4.5 and same will be for good movies...go to hell taran...kitna paisa liya Saifeena se is review ke liye????

    ReplyDelete
  48. but do u knw guyz...taran adarsh kaisa bhi review de, movie kitni bhi gatiya ho..
    par box office pe to ye hit hai..

    ReplyDelete
  49. guess what? taran adarsh again give 4 out of 5, no wonder if he has given 4.5 stars to ra-one.......

    ReplyDelete
  50. Love Aaj Kal,Saif's earlier production,may have been one of the biggest hits of 2009.......
    ........but Agent Vinod(again,Saif's production) will be one of the MAJOR DUDS OF 2012,AAMI SHOTTI BOLCHI.It wont be a super hit like Vidya Balan's Kahaani,which is 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times better than this insipid,lazy,refusing-to-wake-up thriller

  51. Mausam is not bad movie at all.
    its a romantic kind of gern.
    N
    It is far far far better than Agent Vinod..

    ReplyDelete
  54. WTF taran again given 4 stars, he is a total waste

    ReplyDelete
  55. It's something refreshing,stylish and different,its GOOD!!! trust me....first half has got some stylish action sequences,awesome locations(you' ll feel like u r watchn some hollywd movie)..also there are some really "hot good lookin,never heard of babes", and at times little bit of humor.. It is a bit confusing(u ll be like what the hell.. where's this story going?),but in the 2nd half as things get clear,the story actually makes sense.Also,the climax of the movie is good.I liked the review in ndtv :http://movies.ndtv.com/movie_review.aspx?id=692..Other critics have given a bogus review(don't buy that!).Please guys, don't compare it to Bond n all(We Indians have a tendency to not appreciate "our" things,we ignore loopholes of holllywood movies,but look for loopholes in our movies with a microscope).The director has done a remarkable job...for the first time a movie has shown about our ex. intelligence agency.."RAW"..So much so that after watching this movie i feel like joining RAW.(i'm sure they will follow it up with a sequel..a must!)...Sriram Raghavan,take a bow...for bringing to indian audiences for the first time,a good spy thriller.(his two other movies.."EK Haseena Thi" n "Johnny Gaddaar" are also good,watch it!)
    "An Important Note": And for all Rajiv Masand fans,just as someone who mostly gives better ratings is not considered a good critic(eg: taran adarsh)...a critic who always give less ratings to most of the movies cannot(or should not) be considered as a good critic.And for your information,he had given SRKs "OM Shanti OM" 4 stars(CAn u Beleive it,guys??).. With all due respect even a srk fan would give that a max.of 3 stars as a movie.I wonder how come a critic,that too him,gave it 4 stars.

    ReplyDelete
  56. why does this kunal guha give so less reviews to all movies..... agent vinod at least deserves 2.5.....frm my side its 3

    ReplyDelete
  57. Don't go by the reviews guys(ndtv and indiatoday reviews are the only apt ones,rest all bogus!).Indian critics are bogus.We ppl always criticize if someone is trying something new.Don't compare it to any movie..it's good,just go for it!
    P.S: Don't make up ur mind until u watch the 2nd half of the movie.

    You are welcome to leave comments. I don't do reviews just for new movies. I do mainly for movies that are extraordinarily good or extraordinarily bad.
