Pandu won’t make tall claims it stays genuine to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with 1 sole reason – that of entertaining the masses. And who improved to do that than two of the most well regarded comedians from the business?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike group up for this comedy, earning it the 1st time for the two to be acting jointly on the huge 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 general performance, Babasaheb fulfils their want of performing a job for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police force. What follows is a comedy of problems, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double indicating jokes is a tough space. It requirements to have just the right equilibrium a minimal significantly less can make it drab, and a minor a lot more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a stability, producing you giggle with just the correct tadka.
The performing section is whole of regarded names and they produce what is expected of them. Anybody else in put of Bhau Kadam for this job may not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails just about every punch line even though retaining a certain amount of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the great companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an similarly superior functionality. Neither of these two overpowers each other. Sonalee appears gorgeous no doubt, and she also will get to pack a punch (basically) as Usha. The actress’s portion is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the screen as Babasaheb Pathare even though Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise offer in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s initially half is, the movie loses rate in the 2nd fifty percent. While the climax earns some brownie details, the movie does not make a entire turnaround. There are some supporting characters additional for comedian aid, but carrying out away with some of them wouldn’t truly have built a great deal of a big difference. Hemangi Kavi, for example, does not have a lot to do besides establishing Mhadu’s married lifestyle, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All mentioned and accomplished, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the movie. That is also what most persons would go to check out the movie for. The two never disappoint. The identical simply cannot be explained about the movie as a entire nevertheless.
