Pandu will not make tall claims it stays genuine to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with a single sole function – that of entertaining the masses. And who improved to do that than two of the most nicely known comedians from the field?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike staff up for this comedy, generating it the initial time for the two to be performing jointly on the huge display screen. The film starts with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) performing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Pleased with their overall performance, Babasaheb fulfils their wish of executing a job for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement force. What follows is a comedy of glitches, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double meaning jokes is a tricky space. It requirements to have just the appropriate equilibrium a minimal less can make it drab, and a small more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, creating you chuckle with just the appropriate tadka.
The performing section is full of identified names and they deliver what is envisioned of them. Any individual else in location of Bhau Kadam for this job may well not have hit the mark, but the ace comedian nails each punch line though retaining a selected amount of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the best companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally superior overall performance. Neither of these two overpowers every single other. Sonalee appears beautiful no doubt, and she also gets to pack a punch (practically) as Usha. The actress’s section is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the screen as Babasaheb Pathare when Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise offer in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s 1st 50 percent is, the film loses pace in the second 50 percent. Though the climax earns some brownie points, the film does not make a entire turnaround. There are some supporting people included for comedian relief, but carrying out away with some of them would not definitely have designed significantly of a big difference. Hemangi Kavi, for instance, doesn’t have much to do in addition to developing Mhadu’s married everyday living, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All reported and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the movie. Which is also what most individuals would go to check out the film for. The two do not disappoint. The identical are unable to be said about the movie as a entire although.
