In Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhua, RAW Agent Vinod (Saif Ali Khan) is rescued by colleague Rajan (Ravi Kishan) from a rogue Pakistani army officer (Shahbaz Khan). In Russia/Uzbekistan, an ex-KGB Officer is tortured and murdered. In Cape Town, a group of international business tycoons discusses a rumor that the dead KGB officer possessed a nuclear suitcase bomb. In Moscow, Rajan is exposed and shot dead while trying to send a Code Red message to India. In India, the head of RAW sees the incomplete message containing just number 242. Agent Vinod undertakes a globe-trotting secret mission to discover the reason why his colleague, Rajan, was murdered. A series of twists and turns take Vinod across the globe to Morocco and Latvia, Karachi to Delhi and finally London where he discovers the actual conspiracy.
User Reviews: Agent Vinod was an attempt which was wasted by weak direction and poor script. It focused more on the production values rather than content of the film.
Pakistan ISI agent is planning to implant bomb in the heart of New Delhi. Only one man , can stop this –Agent Vinod(Saif Ali Khan). Time is clicking and he must swing into action with help of another Pakistani agent ( Kareena Kapoor) , who was wrongly accused in a London Blast some time back, to save the city before the terrorists turn it into ruins.
I have been an immense admirer of Director Sriram Raghavan’s early work(Ek Haseena Thi , Johnny Gaddar) but I was disappointed big time with this flick. His style of direction is more of thriller with twist in the end which is clearly missing here. Even loose screenplay couldn’t salvage the film from being boredom. Cinematography was enthralling. The film has been shot in amazing parts of the world. Coming to performances , Saif Ali Khan is decent but not effective. Even Kareena was just about okay. Music is very nice with "Pungi" song being the best among others.
Overall , I was not satisfied with the end result. After making this film for 2 years , the team should have focused more on script and direction rather than spending huge amount of money on the production. Disappointing- 2/5
