Agent Vinod: The Jungfrau Encounter (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.250

Jungfrau, Switzerland

At a restaurant high up in the Bernese Alps, four mysterious strangers come together to face their nemesis. Each is there to get even with the one man responsible for his disgrace and humiliation.

But almost nothing is as it seems, when the man happens to be RAW's most notorious operative ever.

The Jungfrau Encounter is your scorching introduction to the newest spy on the block.

Its an ode to the greats who've thrilled us, entertained us and kept us guessing and yet a different beast altogether.

This is not Bond. This is not Bourne.

This is not every other Hollywood spy you've ever known.

This is equal measures Agatha Christie, Hitchcock and Ian Fleming with a dash of Deighton, a little Ludlum and a hint of Le Carre shaken with vintage Ibn-E-Safi and generous swirls of 70s Bollywood with all its mischief, melodrama and madness (and of course, the dhishum-dhishum and dhichkyons) like a classic cocktail with an Indian kick!

This is Awesomeness

The Agent Vinod graphic novel. Way too better than my expectations.

Its fat, exhaustive and filled with pure awesomeness. Amazing page quality and qualitative content justifies the price tag.

Thick pages, glossy covers, and the 'art dossier' at the end was something I enjoyed.

Its got guns and girls. Its got all the action.

Storyline is intriguing and keeps you wanting for more... Saumin Patel delivers some delightful graphic art along with his team. The best perhaps. He should make more of these books..Designing, coloring and lettering..too good and perfect.

This is what I call a classic graphic novel. Each page, right from start till the very end is oh-so-wow!

Very happy with the quality of the book. Its slick and probably the best graphic novel based on a bollywood movie.

Eagerly waiting for next issues. Hope they make it because this won't disappoint you. Go for it guys! Totally worth it!

Flipkart, you're the best!

Agent Vinod (The Jungfrau Encounter) is explosive. Buy it to believe it.

Cheers!!

Decent stuff

Loved Flipkart's new packaging... its cool.

Now over to the Novel, its decent enuf, Well illustrated and a simple narration to build the character of Agent Vinod... Though its another desi version of an American idea, i feel it deserves applause for the initiative... Possibly this will pave the way for more unique "graphic novels"

hyped

the book is more hyped than is worth. the writer has tried to copy every idea he ever liked in the book but none good enough to hold the concentration, also since the plot & ideas do not have the element of surprise which is the essence of a detective book.

Agent Vinod: A fitting homage to the greats of the genre.

My love affair with Agent Vinod began when I manage to catch it in theaters, only because the directorial credit had Sriram Raghavan's name. I could not comprehend the overall flak it had received from critics all over, and found it to be a gripping and compelling work of cinema, if not a masterpiece.
The Jungfrau Encounter is an extension of Raghavan's ambitious and signature style of relating a thrilling, globe-trotting story. To see that it has been penned and illustrated by artists completely unrelated to the creative team of the film is very much a surprise because the treatment, the...

I could not comprehend the overall flak it had received from critics all over, and found it to be a gripping and compelling work of cinema, if not a masterpiece.
The Jungfrau Encounter is an extension of Raghavan's ambitious and signature style of relating a thrilling, globe-trotting story. To see that it has been penned and illustrated by artists completely unrelated to the creative team of the film is very much a surprise because the treatment, the plot and overall style corresponds to that of the film.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself reading this; it has everything an old-school murder mystery/whodunnit enthusiast would love: ample red herrings, dodgy characters, one-room setting and a twist ending. Serving as a direct prequel to the film, it leaves the readers where the film picks up, adding to the anticipation.
The print is glossy and artsy, the one liners are perfectly and suitably over-the-top, and the foreword and afterword by the producer and director of the film respectively reveal the honesty and toil that has gone into perfecting the character of Agent Vinod. Also included are bonus character sketches at the end of the book, which make for a delicious extended read. All-in-all, this is something not to be missed.

Proud addition to my book shelf. Beautiful art, excellent beginning.

Unlike other movie tie-ins, Jungfrau Encounter is a complete, standalone product in itself. It has no relation to the movie, except in further creating the universe of Agent Vinod. Whether Bond or Vinod Khanna, the idea of a desi spy deserves to be explored further irrespective of its "inspiration". Hopefully this is just a beginning. I look forward to a whole series of these books, movies, and maybe, TV shows.

Coming to the book itself, the first surprise (like someone commented earlier) is how fat the novel is. You tend to expect Indian comics to short-change you, but Jungfrau...

Coming to the book itself, the first surprise (like someone commented earlier) is how fat the novel is. You tend to expect Indian comics to short-change you, but Jungfrau is as thick as any "phoren" graphic novel and printed on good paper. The art-work is fabulous and pain staking. Each frame looks like it was designed for a live action movie, with wacky camera angles and subtle touches to enrich the scene. Of course, there is a smattering of in-jokes with the artist paying tribute to his film and comic icons. Overall, the novel is fun.

The story is a bit simplistic and the dialogues could be crisper. My favorite part in the novel is the rough story boards at the end, that show how they developed the characters and the ideas. Isn't that something lacking in even the biggest blockbusters from Bollywood?
