Pandu would not make tall claims it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with a single sole reason – that of entertaining the masses. And who much better to do that than two of the most properly recognized comedians from the field?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike workforce up for this comedy, producing it the 1st time for the two to be acting collectively on the significant monitor. The movie starts with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) doing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Delighted with their functionality, Babasaheb fulfils their wish of performing a occupation for livelihood and gets them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police power. What follows is a comedy of glitches, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double this means jokes is a challenging place. It needs to have just the right harmony a very little less can make it drab, and a minor more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, building you giggle with just the right tadka.
The performing office is complete of recognised names and they provide what is anticipated of them. Any person else in place of Bhau Kadam for this role could not have hit the mark, but the ace comic nails each punch line although retaining a particular degree of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the great companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an equally very good performance. Neither of these two overpowers just about every other. Sonalee appears to be like lovely no doubt, and she also gets to pack a punch (virtually) as Usha. The actress’s aspect is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the monitor as Babasaheb Pathare when Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise bundle in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s very first half is, the movie loses pace in the 2nd 50 %. Though the climax earns some brownie details, the movie doesn’t make a comprehensive turnaround. There are some supporting people included for comedian relief, but accomplishing absent with some of them would not definitely have produced a great deal of a difference. Hemangi Kavi, for example, does not have significantly to do aside from creating Mhadu’s married lifestyle, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All explained and completed, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the highlight of the movie. That is also what most persons would go to check out the film for. The two never disappoint. The identical cannot be explained about the film as a entire although.
