Pandu isn’t going to make tall promises it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with one sole purpose – that of entertaining the masses. And who better to do that than two of the most perfectly identified comedians from the marketplace?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, building it the first time for the two to be acting together on the large screen. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) doing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Happy with their functionality, Babasaheb fulfils their wish of performing a position for livelihood and gets them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement power. What follows is a comedy of errors, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double this means jokes is a challenging spot. It desires to have just the suitable balance a little significantly less can make it drab, and a very little more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a balance, creating you snicker with just the suitable tadka.
The acting office is whole of recognised names and they provide what’s expected of them. Anyone else in put of Bhau Kadam for this position may well not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails every single punch line when retaining a sure degree of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the great companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an similarly superior general performance. Neither of these two overpowers each individual other. Sonalee appears to be beautiful no doubt, and she also gets to pack a punch (literally) as Usha. The actress’s component is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the screen as Babasaheb Pathare when Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock offer in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s to start with 50 percent is, the movie loses rate in the 2nd half. However the climax earns some brownie factors, the movie does not make a finish turnaround. There are some supporting characters included for comedian relief, but carrying out absent with some of them wouldn’t genuinely have made much of a distinction. Hemangi Kavi, for case in point, does not have much to do moreover setting up Mhadu’s married lifetime, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All stated and performed, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the film. That is also what most men and women would go to watch the film for. The two don’t disappoint. The exact same simply cannot be claimed about the movie as a entire even though.
