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

The late Dada Kondke has influenced an overall era 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 isn’t going to make tall statements it stays legitimate to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with a person sole objective – that of entertaining the masses. And who much better to do that than two of the most perfectly recognized comedians from the market?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike staff up for this comedy, earning it the first time for the two to be performing jointly on the large display screen. The movie commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) accomplishing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Joyful with their efficiency, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of executing a career for livelihood and gets them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement power. What follows is a comedy of glitches, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double meaning jokes is a tricky location. It demands to have just the right equilibrium a minor significantly less can make it drab, and a very little extra can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a balance, producing you snicker with just the suitable tadka.

The acting department is whole of recognized names and they produce what is envisioned of them. Anybody else in spot of Bhau Kadam for this purpose may perhaps not have strike the mark, but the ace comic nails each and every punch line when retaining a specific level of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the fantastic companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally good performance. Neither of these two overpowers every single other. Sonalee looks wonderful no question, 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 display as Babasaheb Pathare although Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock package deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s initial fifty percent is, the movie loses pace in the next 50 percent. While the climax earns some brownie details, the film doesn’t make a finish turnaround. There are some supporting characters extra for comic aid, but carrying out away with some of them would not really have built significantly of a distinction. Hemangi Kavi, for illustration, does not have considerably to do other than establishing Mhadu’s married existence, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All said and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the highlight of the movie. That’s also what most persons would go to check out the movie for. The two do not disappoint. The same cannot be reported about the movie as a entire though.
