Story: The Devil aka Mahadev (Mammootty), the head of RAW, grants The Wild One called Rikki aka Ramakrishna (Akhil Akkineni) an opportunity to become an agent for whatever reason. What transpires when a simple assignment goes awry?
The movie Surender Reddy’s Agent is challenging to watch. It appears from the way the plot develops that the creators think they’re giving us a novel story, but they’re not. You are thrust into turmoil right away, and although it all sounds intriguing on paper, the implementation comes out as clumsy.
The unusual youngster next door named Rikki (Akhil Akkineni) has big hopes of becoming a RAW agent. While his father (Murli Sharma) complains that he is wasting time, Rikki is unsuccessfully attempting to join RAW. He comes up with a not so clever strategy to gain the attention of RAW head Mahadev (Mammootty), but it seems to succeed because this is commercial movie. Additionally, he develops feelings for Sakshi Vaidya, a NASA hopeful who enters and exits the narrative at will. The God, also known as Dharma, the head of a syndicate, and The Wild One, it appears, both pose a threat to the tranquilly of Devil.
Rikki is a rogue who insists on having his way with everything. He basically functions as a Puri Jagannadh hero trapped in a Surender Reddy movie. It would sometimes be an understatement to call him unhinged because he is erratic, brash, loud, and unpredictable. One may create a game to kill time by counting the amount of times the term “wild” is used without justification. Despite all of that, Rikki never really has the chance to let his crazy side out. He can only do it three times at most. With the exception of the anticipated suspenseful moments in an espionage thriller, the remaining scenes are as predictable as they come.
Hiphop Tamizha’s music stands out like a sore thumb because of the way Rikki’s love song is structured. Some of the songs are placed so strangely that you’re not sure if they’re there to provide solace or just to annoy you. Both the BGM and several important characters’ sporadic dialect changes are an assault on the ears. The movie’s most significant flaw is its emotionally charged scenes. Although they all sound fantastic in writing, none of them work well on screen because you are never given enough time to fully comprehend what is being said. You never really get the gravity of Rikki, Devil, and God’s characters’ major revelations since they occur on screen so casually. The inane conclusion and poor visual effects only serve to
And it’s a shame since it’s obvious on film that Akhil is having a blast portraying Rikki. He appears to love it all, whether he’s flashing his six-pack, beaming maniacally, or dancing his way through an action scene (yes, you read that right). Even if he occasionally overacts, he does a good job portraying the role. Sakshi is cute and behaves well, so it’s a shame that she doesn’t have much to do. While Dino Morea tries his best to give his generic antagonist some gravitas, Mammootty breezes through his role. Like the character portrayed by Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, there are many additional characters that appear throughout the movie but don’t really offer much.
The heresy of being dull is committed by the espionage thriller Agent. Additionally, although Akhil’s “wild” deed might save the nation, it is insufficient to save the movie.
