Agent Vinod is finally out to lure your souls. The film was much-awaited besides being the most ambitious project of Saif Ali Khan who co-produces and acts in this film. Saif and Sriram Raghavan join hands together after a long hiatus post Ek Hasina Thi. Sriram directs this slick action thriller. The spy thriller ‘Agent Vinod’ is an apt BOND movie. It is a true James Bond style of movie. Although the look is fully Hollywoodish but it has its own Bollywood merits as well. Sriram has sprayed the desi tadka on the flick to allure the Indian masses.
A full-fledged Bond movie has not been made in Bollywood so far thus Saif’s effort is commendable. A 1977 movie with the same title was on the subject of secret agent, Saif’s film borrows the title from it but carries altogether a new plotline and style, etc.
The film is brilliantly made as far as the script, direction and performances are concerned. You would love to watch once you make your stay with. Set is the various parts of the globe, Agent Vinod talks about a RAW Agent named Agent Vinod (Saif Ali Khan) who carries the mission to unearth the world conspiracy. An Indian agent is killed in Moscow. Agent Vinod is sent to investigate the matter. He gets aware of the fact that a money launderer in Russia, Abu Nazar (Ram Kapoor) has transferred the amount US$ 50 million in Morocco for conducting an operation in India. He lands in Morocco where he meets with Mafiosi Kazan (Prem Chopra). He also comes across a Pakistani secret agent Dr. Ruby (Kareena Kapoor). After making rounds of the locales of the globe, he gets to know the actual conspiracy in London finally.
Direction is first rate. Story and script are well penned and carry worth. Editing is great. Cinematography is magnum opus. Music is spongy.
Saif Ali Khan delivers his career best performance. Kareena Kapoor is marvelous. Prem Chopra is appealing. Rest does well as well.
On the whole, Agent Vinod is a stylishly made action thriller, which deserves to be watched.
Saif Ali Khan is again under troubles. Yes, he had just finished with the brawl controversy happened between him and South African businessman Iqbal Sharma at Taj Hotel in Mumbai but now one more trouble hit Saif’s door. Well, this new trouble has happened to his upcoming film ‘Agent Vinod’ which has also been produced under his banner Illuminati Films. A legal notice has been issued to Saif Ali Khan’s film company Illuminati Films, Eros International Media, music composer Pritam Chakraborty and Super Cassettes Ltd on behalf of Borabax Corp, an Iranian underground band.
The trio of Kevian Haghgoo, Kashayar Haghgoo and Hamid Farouzmand had formed this band way back in 2003. The band has alleged that the initial portion of the number of Pyar Ki Pungi (from Agent Vinod) has been copied from the band’s number ‘Soosan Khanoom’. The band maintained in the legal notice that the track was registered in Canada under the copyright act on June 30th 2011. Thus legally no one can use any portion or the entire song without the prior permission of the band. As per the notice, the band got to know about the copied material on March 12th when they watched the number and the promotional activities on satellite channels. After seeing this, the band sent their representative to Mumbai so that the matter could be investigated.
Super Cassettes’s legal team is now dealing with this legal notice filed by the Iranian band. The producers of the movie have turned down the allegations making the stance that the entire song was original.
Saif Ali Khan said that he thoroughly looked into the matter and he found the beginning groove similar. He then said that a lot of music could sound similar so our legal team was on way to handle the issue.

Kareena did Dil Mer Muft Ka, a mujra song that has been making waves in the media and filmgoers. People are loving it and humming it around. Kareena along with Irani actress Zakaria both are enticing the viewers’ souls with their dancing steps and sex appeal in the number.
Saif has done Pyar Ki Pungi. The song at once captures the viewers’ attention and is getting supremely popular among the masses. The song grabs the eyes at once it starts playing. Its comic, cheeky notes and free dance steps are what allure the audiences.
Saif told the media that there is a scene in the movie where AV is being watched and scanned by the CCTV cameras so he behaves in the certain way thus we thought to make an extension to that.
