Pandu won’t make tall claims it stays real to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with a person sole reason – that of entertaining the masses. And who better to do that than two of the most effectively recognized comedians from the marketplace?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike staff up for this comedy, making it the very first time for the two to be acting together on the significant display screen. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) undertaking at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Delighted with their efficiency, Babasaheb fulfils their wish of executing a job for livelihood and gets them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police drive. What follows is a comedy of mistakes, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double that means jokes is a difficult space. It needs to have just the ideal balance a little significantly less can make it drab, and a little far more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, earning you snicker with just the appropriate tadka.
The performing division is total of known names and they provide what is anticipated of them. Any person else in spot of Bhau Kadam for this job may perhaps not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails every single punch line whilst retaining a particular amount of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the great companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an similarly excellent performance. Neither of these two overpowers each and every other. Sonalee appears to be like gorgeous no question, and she also gets to pack a punch (literally) as Usha. The actress’s portion is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the monitor as Babasaheb Pathare although Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise package deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s to start with 50 percent is, the movie loses tempo in the next half. Though the climax earns some brownie details, the movie doesn’t make a complete turnaround. There are some supporting people additional for comedian relief, but carrying out away with some of them wouldn’t seriously have built significantly of a distinction. Hemangi Kavi, for instance, doesn’t have a lot to do moreover developing Mhadu’s married daily life, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All explained and carried out, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the movie. That is also what most folks would go to watch the film for. The two do not disappoint. The exact same simply cannot be stated about the film as a whole even though.
