Pandu won’t make tall claims it stays accurate to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with just one sole goal – that of entertaining the masses. And who better to do that than two of the most properly recognised comedians from the business?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, building it the first time for the two to be acting collectively on the massive screen. The movie commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) executing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Joyful with their performance, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of accomplishing a work for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police power. What follows is a comedy of faults, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double meaning jokes is a challenging location. It requirements to have just the suitable balance a small fewer can make it drab, and a small more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a stability, producing you giggle with just the correct tadka.
The performing section is whole of known names and they produce what is envisioned of them. Any person else in put of Bhau Kadam for this job may perhaps not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails just about every punch line whilst retaining a certain level of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the fantastic companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an similarly very good efficiency. Neither of these two overpowers each and every other. Sonalee seems wonderful no question, and she also receives to pack a punch (literally) as Usha. The actress’s part is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the display as Babasaheb Pathare though Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock package in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s initial 50 percent is, the film loses pace in the 2nd 50 percent. Although the climax earns some brownie details, the film doesn’t make a total turnaround. There are some supporting figures added for comedian reduction, but undertaking absent with some of them would not actually have produced substantially of a change. Hemangi Kavi, for case in point, does not have a great deal to do apart from developing Mhadu’s married lifetime, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All reported and performed, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the film. That’s also what most people today would go to observe the movie for. The two really don’t disappoint. The identical can’t be stated about the film as a full while.
