Upon release, Agent Vinod received mixed to negative reviews from critics.
Bollywood Hungama rated the film 4 out of 5 stars and noted, “An ambitious script, set in various countries, Agent Vinod is by far the most credible secret agent movie made in Bollywood. This hi-octane thriller has style and substance, both!”
Rediff gave the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and said, “As a film, Agent Vinod must be termed a disappointment, a slick and well-produced throwback to the spy thriller that feels both overlong and under-conceived.”
Daily News and Analysis rated the film 2 out of 5 stars, saying, “Agent Vinod is not campy enough to be fun, not intelligent enough to be taken seriously, and not entertaining enough to override the first two points.”
Koimoi gave the film 2 out of 5 stars as well, commenting, “Agent Vinod is a bold experiment gone wrong; certainly not something that entertains in its entirety.”
Zee News gave the film 2 out of 5 stars, commenting, “Agent Vinod is a genuine attempt at entertaining in a sensible manner. But it somehow falls short of being declared as a brilliant piece of work. Watch it for its stylish presentation, it hasn’t got anything else to offer.”
Mumbai Boss rated the film 2 out of 5 stars as well, commenting, “Agent Vinod doesn’t explode—it fizzles with a damp whimper. The story is hideously convoluted and the second half and finale are so clichéd that even a novice moviegoer would know exactly what’s going to happen 20 minutes into the film.”
Yahoo! rated the film 1 out of 5 stars, saying, “Let’s just say foreign locales, weapons to annihilate the world, designer suits and not-so-excruciating interrogations don’t cumulatively justify Agent Vinod as a thrilling movie-watching experience.”
India Today gave the film a mixed review, saying, “If only Sriram Raghavan had not gone weak on his knees at the thought of love, Agent Vinod would have been a smarter, sharper, cooler film.”
The Times of India called the film “above average” and said “The film is entertaining but not in entirety. Agent Vinod gets the nod though not whole-heartedly!”
