He’s not blond but desi Bond meets Bourne for a spy masala mix - apna Agent Vinod. With all the makings of a suave 007 always shaken never stirred. With guns gadgets girls and guts.

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 p

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 coo

Lots of action and suspense

If only Sriram Raghavan had not gone weak in the knees at the thought of love, Agent Vinod would have been a sharper, smarter, cooler film.

Bollywood Life
Agent Vinod is a half-baked fare which disappoints. The film will not fare too well at the box-office as word of mouth publicity will not work in its favor.

Agent Vinod is Bollywood’s answer to James Bond. Well almost. Saif Ali Khan is RAW operative Vinod – a stylish, suave master of international sleuthing. When a fellow RAW agent Rajan (Ravi Kissen) is killed, AV is forced to country-hop across Afghanistan,
Planet Bollywood
Saif Ali Khan returns after a long break, his last solo-film was Kurbaan way back in 2009. He had a significant role to play in last year’s Aarakshan, but the film almost entirely belonged to Amitabh Bachchan.

While of late style and technique has seen a manifold increase in Bollywood, filmmakers are also pushing the boundary when it comes to challenging the audience. Yes, there are escapist films being made (and loved as well). However there are filmmakers who are aspiring to merge hardcore commercial cinema with elements that require one to think hard and grasp the context of a scene rather than being spoon fed. 'Agent Vinod' is an example of one such cinema. Though there is always a risk element associated with such endeavours, Saif Ali Khan and Sriram Raghavan seem to have taken a conscious call in this direction.

The Story began with the escape of RAW Agent Vinod from the terrorist groups in Afghanistan and the murder of its counter Part.

Agent Vinod is like a beautifully shot travel commercial, with locations traversing from Afghanistan to Russia, New Delhi to Somalia, Morocco to Pakistan, Riga to London to South Africa.

You could skip it!
Overall, the story has flaws, there is too much travelling to make you go dizzy and it’s not the Raghavan you wanted that you see. But it’s not all that bad either. The movie works in bits and parts and shines in a few sequences. A one-time watch.
Bolly Spice
Agent Vinod is style over substance. A little mish-mash and a little rehash.
Now Running
The film lacks any underlying tone of humour, despite the potential. That makes the proceedings somewhat dry. The dialogues are plain functional. Pooja Ladha Surti's editing is smart and sassy and the long runtime doesn't hurt much. The action is slick but doesn't stand out. CK Muraleedharan's cinematography is competent. The background score which derives from James Bond signature tune and RD Burman numbers works well
