Pandu won’t make tall statements it stays accurate to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with one sole objective – that of entertaining the masses. And who greater to do that than two of the most well identified comedians from the industry?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, generating it the to start with time for the two to be acting with each other on the significant monitor. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) accomplishing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Content with their effectiveness, Babasaheb fulfils their desire of accomplishing a position for livelihood and gets them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement drive. What follows is a comedy of glitches, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double that means jokes is a difficult area. It demands to have just the correct equilibrium a small a lot less can make it drab, and a very little a lot more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, creating you chuckle with just the right tadka.
The performing office is whole of recognised names and they supply what’s anticipated of them. Any person else in position of Bhau Kadam for this role might not have hit the mark, but the ace comedian nails every punch line although retaining a certain level of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the perfect companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an similarly excellent efficiency. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee appears wonderful no question, and she also gets to pack a punch (virtually) as Usha. The actress’s component is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the display as Babasaheb Pathare when Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise bundle in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s initially fifty percent is, the movie loses rate in the next 50 %. Though the climax earns some brownie factors, the film doesn’t make a entire turnaround. There are some supporting figures added for comic aid, but doing away with some of them would not seriously have manufactured a great deal of a change. Hemangi Kavi, for case in point, does not have considerably to do apart from establishing Mhadu’s married daily life, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All said and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the highlight of the film. That is also what most persons would go to view the film for. The two don’t disappoint. The very same can not be claimed about the film as a complete even though.
