Agent Vinod Licensed For Boredom – 1.0/5.0
One of my friends said that Agent Vinod is the remake of old Agent Vinod (Available on YouTube). I was not convinced, but when I came out of the theater I started believing it. Really? Sriram Raghavan?
After Ek Hasina Thi and Johny Gaddar, Agent Vinod? I still can’t believe that Saif and Sriram come up with this utterly disorganized film.
Agent Vinod is something that Saif wanted to do with Kurbaan,(Thank god they haven’t repeated any love making act, may be Saif wanted to concentrate more on acting skills.) The main problem of the film is screenplay. Screenplay throws out sequences without any explanation. Therefore, you can’t connect with this film. It feels like writers were stoned and when they were high they started writing Agent Vinod. This film shows you glimpse of 7 or more countries with irrelevant characters that supposed to be most wanted criminals. In middle of the movie my friend asked me which this country is. Every character in this movie is flat and shallow. I can’t say even say ’underwritten’. There are ton of questions that could really make you sick and dizzy. Couple of dialogues is witty but you heard it in first trailer of the movie. Sriram tried different things like to relate the sequence with Charlie Chaplin’s films and to synchronies the fight sequence with silent song but it doesn’t hold your attention because your mind continuously tries to figure out what the hell is going on.
Too many characters but no one gets enough time to act. Saif is confused, he tries to carry the film but the plot (?) is so weak that I would have watched Don 2 again. Why the hell editor freeze some random frames? To make an impression on viewer’s mind?
The good thing about agent Vinod is that it’s not in 3D. This is not an action movie, it just a movie where someone kills someone, that’s it. The most idiotic thing about the film is that a bullet is sufficient to kill Vinod but then, again we have to face lame action moves. Why there is Rajat Kapoor and Gulshan Grover? They come and go, they do nothing. But why even writers came up with those characters.
Agent Vinod is not an intelligent, smart film and it doesn’t come up with anything new. This spy has licensed for boredom.
