Pandu isn’t going to make tall statements it stays legitimate to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with a person sole purpose – that of entertaining the masses. And who greater to do that than two of the most properly recognised comedians from the industry?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, creating it the first time for the two to be performing alongside one another on the large display. The film commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) accomplishing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Content with their effectiveness, Babasaheb fulfils their want of executing a career for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police power. What follows is a comedy of mistakes, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double this means jokes is a tough location. It wants to have just the ideal equilibrium a little considerably less can make it drab, and a tiny far more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a stability, creating you chuckle with just the correct tadka.
The acting section is comprehensive of known names and they deliver what’s expected of them. Any one else in location of Bhau Kadam for this purpose may possibly not have hit the mark, but the ace comedian nails each and every punch line although retaining a sure degree of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the best companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an equally good functionality. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee seems gorgeous no question, and she also gets to pack a punch (pretty much) as Usha. The actress’s component is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the monitor as Babasaheb Pathare whilst Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s 1st fifty percent is, the movie loses pace in the second 50 %. Nevertheless the climax earns some brownie factors, the film does not make a entire turnaround. There are some supporting people additional for comic reduction, but carrying out absent with some of them wouldn’t seriously have manufactured a lot of a difference. Hemangi Kavi, for example, doesn’t have a lot to do in addition to developing Mhadu’s married life, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All stated and finished, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the movie. That is also what most people today would go to view the movie for. The two really don’t disappoint. The same can’t be claimed about the film as a whole even though.
