The story begins with a series of seemingly unconnected events, all over the globe. In Uzbekistan, an ex KGB officer is tortured and murdered. In Cape Town, a group of International business tycoons discuss a rumor that the dead KGB officer had a nuclear suitcase bomb hidden away. In Moscow, an Indian secret agent is exposed. The agent is shot dead while trying to send a code red message to India. In India, the head of the raw sees the incomplete message. All it contains is a number 242.
Enter AGENT VINOD. Vinod (Saif Ali Khan) is the kind of agent who first kicks the door open and then finds out what’s behind it. His unconventional approach puts him in dangerous situations, but he manages to get the crucial leads. Vinod is sent to Moscow to investigate why his colleague was killed. Vinod finds out that a Russian money launderer Abu Nazar (Ram Kapoor) has sent 50 million dollars to contact in Morocco, for an operation against India.
Vinod leaves for Morocco, where he meets an elderly Mafiosi Kazan (Prem Chopra) and the beautiful but mysterious Dr. Ruby (Kareena Kapoor). A series of twists and turns take agent VINOD across the globe from Marakkesh to Riga, Karachi to Delhi and finally London where he discovers the ultimate conspiracy.
Agent Vinod, you may not agree with his methods, but you sure are glad he’s on your side. Agent Vinod is your passport to action and adventure.
Saif Ali Khan as Agent Vinod – With the sorry state of the world, what better time than today to delve into the life of a super slick secret agent? Someone who understands the games nations are playing, process incoming information and control rather than be controlled by situations. Someone who is not always backed by the might of military hardware and brainpower. Someone who has to rely more on guts than gadgets. He has a devilish cunning and almost seems to enjoy the danger of the situation. You may not agree with his methods but you are glad he’s son on your side. He can speak 23 languages and still learning. He is right now learning Japanese.
In a world of profound flux, we need the anchor of a hero who is able to do something about the things that we, frankly have no power over. His hobby is paining. Painting himself into a corner.
Kareena Kapoor as Dr. Ruby/Iram – Is she Dr. Ruby, professional doctor to ageing mafia don Kazan… Or is she Iram, a terrorist who has escaped from a British jail and is presumed dead.
Only two people in the world know her secret and both have been eliminated. As mysterious as she’s beautiful… Vinod has to decide whether he can trust or not.
Ravi Kishen as Rajan – A decorated soldier, Major Rajan Sinha is also a raw agent and Vinod’s colleague…Rajan doesn’t have one good word to say about Vinod, and yet they are the best of friends. If you are wondering why, please don’t miss the beginning.
Rajan Sinha, a master of infiltration…Rajan works deep and is the rain check for raw. When he is sent alone… the enemy is eaten from within. And when both are sent together… Nawaz closes the case!!!
Prem Chopra as Kazan – He is part Greek, part Moroccan, and part Indian but a complete thug. A portion of art and culture, camel racer and breeder…papa Kazan lives in his Palatial Villa in Morocco. But inside the genial exterior lies a ruthless points man ruling the drug trade in the Mediterranean. And if you have a contraband nobody wants to touch… he is a man to turn to. But this time even he is going a bit too far.
Gulshan Grover as Tehmur Pasha – In the top five of the Interpol’s most wanted, hiding under state protection in Karachi, he is tired of using his network to help strange terror plans… When these precious resources can be used to make money. But sometimes the hosts need humouring…So a deadly convoy gets his blessing.
Ram Kapoor as Abu Nazer – Fat, pompous and cruel… Abu leads the sub-continent mafia in St. Petersburg. His main business is money laundering and hawala. He is also involved in arms, drugs and prostitution. He has killed Rajan and now has Vinod at gun-point before him… they found your friend’s dead body. Be sure they won’t find yours.
Shahbaz Khan as Huzefa Lokha – A touch of evil… from the registans near Kandahar to planning the final strike… Lokha is the ubiquitous face of anti-India terror. But this time… Is he the king or the pawn?
KC Shankar as Prince (aka Scarface) – The last of the remaining black tigers…He now roams the world for that ultimate Tiger claw can cripple the Government that killed his leader. He is now within his striking distance… When he sees someone he prayed he would never see again. And who did he see? Agent Vinod.
