A movie with the same title in 1977, starring Mahendra Sandhu, proved a big hit. However, the new AGENT VINOD is a nice and stylized movie. The movie is shot in various countries. Its hard to keep the number of cities in mind while watching the movie. The movie starts with many unconnected events, all over the globe like in Uzbekistan, Cape Town, Moscow. One of the secret agent, Ravi Kishan is shot dead while trying to send a code to India. However, the message code 242 remains unclear to the RAW.
The case for finding out 242 code is then handed over to Vinod (Saif Ali Khan). Vinod was sent to Moscow, where he finds Abu Nazar (Ram Kapoor) as one of the hints to investigate the case. He keeps on finding many persons involved in all that and keeps roaming around different countries to find hints.
Then he meets Mafiosi Kazan (Prem Chopra) and Dr Ruby (Kareena Kapoor). He then finds out the whole operation to made for an attack in New Delhi.
You need to watch the movie with a vigilant mind, as this movie requires your strong concentration, if you want to understand the whole concept.
The songs 'Pungi', 'Raabta' and the mujra, 'Dil Mera Muft Ka', are nicely fimed.
Saif returns as a spy in AGENT VINOD after his simple performance in "Aarakshan". Saif has a distinct style and proves charming all through. Kareena also plays a nice role in the movie.
On the whole, AGENT VINOD is a thriller movie, that demands your concentration. It can be said as a desi Bond movie. Overall Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
