Agent Vinod - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

An almost 3-hour long, slick chase sequence that gets exasperating by the end. The climax itself is first unintentionally hilarious and then infuriating. A suave hero you couldn't care for, a pretty damsel-in-distress who exists only to add stress to the hero's life and ours - this situation saved by a brilliant (albeit choppy) background score and a couple of uber-cool action sequences.

Plot Summary

Agent Vinod finds a clue that is as open-ended as '242'. That's it. What is it? The people who want to get to it sound dangerous. Nuclear war type dangerous. Agent Vinod has to save the world.

What Worked

  • After watching the film I loved the trailers even more than before because of how they mislead.
  • The titles - as with any Sriram Raghavan film!
  • The fact that 'Pungi' wasn't a part of the film.
  • The fact that they left Vinod's sexuality ambiguous.
  • The auto-ride in Delhi.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Why did Kareena Kapoor smile at the interval?! It was surely no place for Irma to.
  • How does the deonator get into that book?!
  • Why doesn't Agent Vinod's boss not take a look into the contents of the USB stick he gets from the Colonel? And the Agent just takes it upon himself to take action. And such ridiculously controversial action at that!?
  • Agent Vinod and Irma's backstories! Ugh!! What was that?
