Pandu doesn’t make tall statements it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with one sole purpose – that of entertaining the masses. And who greater to do that than two of the most very well recognized comedians from the sector?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike crew up for this comedy, making it the very first time for the two to be performing with each other on the large display screen. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) carrying out at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Joyful with their effectiveness, Babasaheb fulfils their desire of doing a career for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement force. What follows is a comedy of faults, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double indicating jokes is a tough area. It requires to have just the ideal equilibrium a small significantly less can make it drab, and a small additional can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a stability, creating you chortle with just the proper tadka.
The performing section is comprehensive of acknowledged names and they supply what is predicted of them. Anybody else in place of Bhau Kadam for this function may perhaps not have hit the mark, but the ace comic nails each individual punch line although retaining a certain level of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the great companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an equally superior performance. Neither of these two overpowers just about every other. Sonalee seems beautiful no question, and she also gets to pack a punch (actually) as Usha. The actress’s aspect is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the display as Babasaheb Pathare while Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock bundle in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s initially half is, the film loses tempo in the next fifty percent. Although the climax earns some brownie factors, the movie does not make a full turnaround. There are some supporting people added for comic aid, but carrying out away with some of them would not seriously have created a lot of a change. Hemangi Kavi, for illustration, doesn’t have significantly to do other than setting up Mhadu’s married life, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All explained and performed, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the highlight of the movie. That’s also what most people today would go to look at the movie for. The two really don’t disappoint. The identical are unable to be mentioned about the film as a whole though.
