Whatever images a 'Bond movie' conjures up in your head, 'Golden Eye' has all of that and more. It's slicker, smoother and sexier. And to paraphrase a certain famous cricketer - 'Brosnan ka jawaab nahin!'. It may be his first but it sure won't be his last!

The story is pretty straightforward Bond stuff - 'Golden Eye' is a highly secret technology built by the Americans and Soviets together. It consists of a satellite dish that controls an instrument in space that in turn sends highly powerful electromagnetic pulses with high destructive capability. As expected, it falls into the wrong hands, and our man is called upon to save the world again.

It turns out that the mastermind is his nemesis - a former buddy who chose to work on the dark side. The mission takes Bond to Russia where he meets and rescues the beautiful Natalya, who worked at the Soviet center of Golden Eye. He also crosses paths with the sado-masochistic Xenia Onatopp, whose particular talent is, quite literally, squeezing the life out of her men!

Needless to say, Bond is shaken (by the baddies) and stirred (by Natalya) and still manages to come up trumps. There are some amazing action scenes including a great car chase right at the beginning. What's more, Brosnan gets to drive an army tank right through the middle of Moscow!

This movie also shows a soft side of Ian Fleming's strong and silent character - he actually falls in love with Natalya, and even mourns the death of a friend. Brosnan looks the part totally and he's going to make a name for himself as an excellent Bond.

The downside of the movie is that there are so many unrealistic and unbelievable scenes. In fact, sometimes it reminds you of one of our own desi movies where nothing can touch the hero, his gun is always loaded and he never falls off the edge.

Apart from the credibility factor, this is a must-watch movie. Oh yeah, did I forget the Bond Women? Fantastic, to say the least! Check out the future 007 - trust me, Brosnan is it!
