Vijay - Vijay Amritaj

Indian tennis professional Vijay Amritaj makes his big screen debut as Bond's likable ally in India. Vijay's cover is - appropriately enough - a tennis professional working at a resort owned by Kamal Khan. He also poses as a snake charmer who contacts 007 by playing the 'James Bond Theme' on his flute - a nice gag. Although gentle and humorous, Vijay distinguishes himself as a fearless field agent. He becomes the film's sacrificial lamb when he dies an agonizing death at the hands of Gobinda and the thugs in his employ. The death of Vijay touches Bond deeply and allows for some of the most poignant moments of the film.
