Pandu won’t make tall statements it stays genuine to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with one sole goal – that of entertaining the masses. And who greater to do that than two of the most effectively recognised comedians from the market?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, building it the 1st time for the two to be acting together on the massive screen. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) undertaking at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Joyful with their effectiveness, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of performing 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 which means jokes is a difficult region. It needs to have just the ideal harmony a small considerably less can make it drab, and a small far more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, making you chortle with just the suitable tadka.
The acting office is comprehensive of known names and they supply what is expected of them. Any one else in location of Bhau Kadam for this part may not have hit the mark, but the ace comic nails just about every punch line though retaining a particular level of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the excellent companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an similarly very good efficiency. Neither of these two overpowers each individual other. Sonalee appears lovely no question, and she also will get to pack a punch (pretty much) as Usha. The actress’s element is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the display screen as Babasaheb Pathare although 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 next 50 %. Although the climax earns some brownie details, the movie doesn’t make a full turnaround. There are some supporting people included for comedian relief, but doing away with some of them wouldn’t genuinely have made significantly of a big difference. Hemangi Kavi, for case in point, doesn’t have considerably to do besides creating Mhadu’s married lifestyle, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All reported and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the film. Which is also what most people today would go to look at the movie for. The two really do not disappoint. The identical can not be mentioned about the movie as a whole however.
