Agent Vinod review News
‘Agent Vinod’ gets an average opening at the box office
Saif Ali Khan’s ambitious production may not set the cash registers ringing but might recover its investment
Agent Vinod was a much anticipated film and Saif Ali Khan had left no stone unturned in promoting the film. But despite all the effort, this spy thriller hasn’t managed to get a great opening. According to early estimates the film has made around Rs 9 crore on the first day, which is just about average considering it was a holiday in Maharastra (padwa) and a long weekend.

AGENT VINOD movie review: Not all guns blazing!
Agent Vinod could have been the coolest spy thriller to come out of India since it does not have too much competition in that department. But it misses the mark by a good margin. Director Sriram Raghavan loses the plot by trying too hard and packing in as much as he possibly could in one big budget flick
Before you start watching Agent Vinod you have some expectations from it since you know at least three important things: Sriram Raghavan has directed two very underrated and understated but intelligent thrillers – Ek Haseena Thi and Johnny Gaddar , that he has waited five years for Agent Vinod to materialize and it’s Saif Ali Khan’s home production and his most ambitious project.
To start with, the spy thriller has a perfect beginning. The story kicks off in Afghanistan where Agent Vinod (Saif Ali Khan) is being held hostage. The smart and daring character of Vinod is quickly established with his witty repartee and quirky manner of dealing with his enemy, followed by a well-shot action sequence in the desert and the slickly done title credits.

AGENT VINOD music review: Forget mujra, pick the pungi!
Music director: Pritam
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
The so-called hip version of the mujra sticks out like a sore thumb in the otherwise slick soundtrack
Agent Vinod has only four songs and one theme track. It’s supposed to be an action-packed thriller and more songs would have surely ruined the pace of the film. Keeping the genre in mind all the tracks are slick and edgy, except one – Dil mera muft ka. If this song had not been promoted as a mujra and had been treated like just another item song, it could have worked better. Click here to read more
