“Agent” Telugu movie is basically an exercise to take off the film career of Akhil Akkineni, who is badly waiting for a hit to stand on his own as a hero in the crowded Tollywood. This film made on a liberal budget close to Rs 70 crore, (including remunerations) is a work of director Surender Reddy who pinned his hopes on a formula – of more action, more guns and twisted story line -to keep the audience hooked to their seats.

And what? Leave some scope for a sequel – part 2– at the end. So that the fans will be rest assured that one more ot is will come, if they make this a success. Akhil has been launched into films by his top hero father Nagarjuna a few years ago, but those handful movies fared poorly at the box office. “Most Eligible Bachelor” was last movie of Akhil, in which he played a lover boy.

The story line developed by Vakkamtazm Vamsi is simple –  a lazy yet unpredictable middle-class youth Rama Krishna alias Rikki, 25 played by Akhil, has dreams to become an RAW agent. Finally, he finds a lady love and his dream job too – although on peculiar circumstances. He had to deal with two established doyens in his spy world – Mammootty, bis boss and Dino Morea, his villain. Emotions and actions come alternately, along with comedy.


New come back formula

There seems to be a new found formula for the come back of established heroes who  badly needed a hit – whether it is Kamal Haasan’s Vikram or Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathan since recently. More action, guns and bullets with human emotions plus a promise of a part-2. Don’t forget to show a strong villain who is forced to become a baddie. Usually, villains have no justification to become villains, but recent hit movies are adding this line to the story.

Enough efforts were made to establish Akhil as a regular commercial bankable hero in Tollywood or outside too. “Wild Saala” tag to his character is aimed  at that. Heroine’s Telangana slang is meant for that. Normally, spy movies have ample scope for foreign locations and car chasing scenes – you can expect a plenty of them here. Producers will have to wait till next week to know Agent’s success at Box office.
