Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the highlight of Pandu

The late Dada Kondke has inspired an full technology of viewers, filmmakers and actors in Maharashtra, and Pandu is a testimony of that. No, it’s not a remake or sequel of Dada Kondke’s iconic Pandu Hawaldar, but a tribute to Dada Kondke.

Pandu does not make tall promises it stays real to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with one sole intent – that of entertaining the masses. And who better to do that than two of the most nicely acknowledged comedians from the marketplace?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike group up for this comedy, producing it the very first time for the two to be acting collectively on the significant display. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) carrying out at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Delighted with their functionality, Babasaheb fulfils their desire of undertaking a task for livelihood and will get them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police drive. What follows is a comedy of faults, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double meaning jokes is a challenging area. It desires to have just the ideal equilibrium a small less can make it drab, and a minimal much more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a equilibrium, making you chortle with just the proper tadka.

The performing office is total of acknowledged names and they produce what is expected of them. Any individual else in position of Bhau Kadam for this job might not have hit the mark, but the ace comedian nails each punch line when retaining a specified stage of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the fantastic companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally superior efficiency. Neither of these two overpowers each other. Sonalee seems to be wonderful no question, and she also receives to pack a punch (basically) as Usha. The actress’s portion is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the screen as Babasaheb Pathare even though Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s to start with 50 % is, the movie loses pace in the second fifty percent. Though the climax earns some brownie details, the movie doesn’t make a full turnaround. There are some supporting figures added for comedian reduction, but executing away with some of them would not definitely have produced a great deal of a variation. Hemangi Kavi, for example, does not have considerably to do apart from creating Mhadu’s married existence, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All explained and finished, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the film. That’s also what most persons would go to view the movie for. The two really do not disappoint. The similar can not be claimed about the film as a entire nevertheless.
