Pandu doesn’t make tall statements it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with a person sole function – that of entertaining the masses. And who superior to do that than two of the most perfectly known comedians from the market?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, generating it the initial time for the two to be performing with each other on the huge display. The film begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) performing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Content with their overall performance, Babasaheb fulfils their desire of accomplishing a occupation for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police pressure. What follows is a comedy of faults, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double that means jokes is a tough region. It wants to have just the ideal stability a little a lot less can make it drab, and a minor far more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a stability, generating you snicker with just the correct tadka.
The acting office is full of recognised names and they deliver what’s predicted of them. Any person else in area of Bhau Kadam for this role may perhaps not have hit the mark, but the ace comic nails every punch line even though retaining a particular level of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the excellent companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally very good general performance. Neither of these two overpowers each and every other. Sonalee seems to be gorgeous no doubt, and she also gets to pack a punch (literally) as Usha. The actress’s part is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the monitor as Babasaheb Pathare although Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise bundle in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s initially half is, the movie loses rate in the 2nd 50 %. While the climax earns some brownie factors, the movie doesn’t make a finish turnaround. There are some supporting characters extra for comic aid, but executing away with some of them would not genuinely have produced a lot of a variation. Hemangi Kavi, for case in point, doesn’t have considerably to do other than establishing Mhadu’s married daily life, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All mentioned and performed, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the film. That’s also what most people would go to view the film for. The two never disappoint. The very same are unable to be explained about the movie as a complete even though.
