So anyone watched it? I'm hoping that it can manage to be decent despite having Saif Ali Khan in it. After all, you don't need a good actor for a spy movie. The reviews I've seen complain about it being too cliched and unoriginal. But the way I see it many spy movies rely on cliches and tropes as part of the style. It's the action and general over-the-top events that make spy movies what they are. Hell, most of the good spy movies are parodies of the spy genre.
Anyways, does anybody have a link to a camrip online? Obviously, it isn't playing in the local theatre here, so the only way I can watch it is to watch a pirated version...
Oh Ohh OHH!!!
Pakistan ban won’t affect Agent Vinod revenues: Saif – The Express TribuneMUMBAI: Actor-producer Saif Ali Khan isn’t perturbed over Pakistan banning Agent Vinod, saying that very little revenue would be lost by the restriction imposed on his home production, which is releasing Friday.
“We have lost some revenue, just around Rs. 1 crore. They are always banning our movies. Kurbaan was also banned,” Saif told IANS adding that “We also shot in Pakistan without their permission.
“Agent Vinod is for Indians but it is not against Pakistanis,” said Saif and added with a smile: “But I understand if they get upset because we are beating them up quite often in the film.”
Directed by Sriram Raghavan, Agent Vinod has Saif in the title role and Kareena Kapoor as the female lead.
Talking about characterization of Pakistanis in Agent Vinod, he said: “We have shown the Pakistani Army involved with the Taliban and Afghanistan. We have shown them assassinating their own ISI chief. We have shown them encouraging terrorist activities in India and financing the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). If you feel this is unreasonable or not true, then it is fair enough.”
“I think it is all quite true. Maybe they didn’t like that but they do know,” he added.
Once a prolific moviemaking country, Pakistan had 1,300 cinema halls in the 1970s with an average annual production of around 300 movies. But by 2005, the country had only 270 cinema halls and made about 18 movies a year. The rest of the movie halls have been converted into gas stations, shopping malls or car showrooms.
In 2010, just eight Pakistani movies were produced.
Movie buffs in Pakistan had a hearty appetite for Bollywood movies, but they had to watch pirated copies of Hindi films as the release of Indian films had been banned in Pakistan.
In 2008, the Pakistan government lifted the ban on Indian films and that has given a much-needed boost to the cinema business.
read the review of agent vinod , as predicted a major flop ...
So watching Agent Vinod right now. So far it seems like it's James Bond except he doesn't screw the girls...
Lol, regular Bollywood movie. Shows lies and propoganda... When will your directors ever make 1 good movie??
And ISI always wins against RAW, not vice versa
So a movie that wants people to believe lies and conspiracy theories? More or less a propaganda film? I don't mind this being banned. As a matter of fact, all bharati movies should be banned here. Yeah yeah, I know about pirated movies. At least the bharatis won't make any money out that.
Ban all Indian films. Piracy is allowed as it will put money into Pakistani pockets, rather than Indian pockets.
watched this stupid movie because friends insisted...
it is about how investment bankers carry out the blasts for earning money or greater good or whatever...you will know if you have watched zeitgeist documentaries...
not worth watching...
