While Agent Vinod is garnering a mixed response from its audiences, an internet poll has voted the movie much behind last year’s action releases like Singham and Aazaan, with Players and Don 2 also being part of the poll.
In an audience poll on a leading social networking site this week, the Saif Ali Khan starrer ranked behind Ajay Devgn’s Singham and Sachiin Joshi’s Aazaan in the race for the best action movies of the year. Luckily, going by its current hype, the film managed to beat Don 2 and Players by a small margin.
“While Aazaan had riveting action and breathtaking locales matching Hollywood production values, Singham made sure it stunned everyone with its car stunts and South Indian cinema style larger-than-life action,” says a trade analyst. “Though Agent Vinod moves from one country to another, exploring different locations at a rapid pace, its script leaves a lot to be desired,” he adds.
Going by the latest trends, it seems Bollywood still has to learn a few lessons before it can match up to Hollywood finesse the way Aazaan or Players did.
