Agent Vinod Review

The tradition of espionage sagas in Hindi film industry dates back to Jeetendra’s Farz (1967), Dev Kumar’s Spy In Rome (1968), Dharmendra’s Yakeen(1969), Mithun Chakraborty’s Surakksha (1979), Jeetendra’s Bond 303 (1985), Akshay Kumar’s Mr. Bond (1992), Shahrukh Khan’s Baadshah (1999), Sunny Deol’s The Hero (2003). But the effort to find out an Indian spy agent equivalent to Bond and Bourne remained unsuccessful. Now with Agent Vinod, the industry seems to have given birth to one.

Sriram Raghavan has retained the title from 1977’s hit movie Agent Vinod, starring Mahendra Sandhu, but he has evolved a brand new plotline of his own. It is an ultra slick and stylish desi Bond movie that takes you on a whirlwind tour across continents. Its elegant narration keeps you tongue-tied throughout the movie. It is really a well packaged secret agent movie.

Saif Ali Khan’s wonderful performance is the major highlight of the film. Sriram Raghavan’s story and narrations are its USP. Pritam Chakraborty’s music, CK Muraleedharan’s cinematography, Peter Heins-Parvez Khan’s stunts, Pooja Ladha Surti’s razor-sharp editing and panoramic locales are the other attraction of the film
