Pandu does not make tall claims it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with one sole purpose – that of entertaining the masses. And who superior to do that than two of the most nicely regarded comedians from the sector?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike crew up for this comedy, producing it the initially time for the two to be performing together on the large screen. The movie starts with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) executing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Content with their general performance, Babasaheb fulfils their want of performing a task for livelihood and gets them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement drive. What follows is a comedy of problems, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double that means jokes is a tough area. It demands to have just the correct balance a minimal a lot less can make it drab, and a minor far more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, making you giggle with just the appropriate tadka.
The performing division is complete of recognised names and they produce what is envisioned of them. Anyone else in put of Bhau Kadam for this purpose may well not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails each and every punch line while retaining a particular amount of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the best companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally fantastic functionality. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee looks lovely no doubt, and she also will get to pack a punch (basically) as Usha. The actress’s section is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the monitor as Babasaheb Pathare though Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock package in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s to start with fifty percent is, the movie loses tempo in the 2nd fifty percent. However the climax earns some brownie points, the movie does not make a full turnaround. There are some supporting characters added for comic aid, but doing away with some of them wouldn’t really have created substantially of a change. Hemangi Kavi, for example, doesn’t have a great deal to do aside from setting up Mhadu’s married lifetime, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All claimed and carried out, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the film. That is also what most people would go to look at the film for. The two really don’t disappoint. The exact same can’t be claimed about the movie as a full nevertheless.
