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

The late Dada Kondke has encouraged an whole technology of viewers, filmmakers and actors in Maharashtra, and Pandu is a testimony of that. No, it truly is not a remake or sequel of Dada Kondke’s legendary Pandu Hawaldar, but a tribute to Dada Kondke.

Pandu would not make tall claims it stays genuine to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with a single sole goal – that of entertaining the masses. And who far better to do that than two of the most effectively known comedians from the business?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, producing it the to start with time for the two to be performing jointly on the large display screen. The film begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) undertaking at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Satisfied with their efficiency, Babasaheb fulfils their wish of undertaking a position for livelihood and gets them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement force. What follows is a comedy of mistakes, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double which means jokes is a tough area. It needs to have just the right stability a small fewer can make it drab, and a small additional can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, producing you snicker with just the proper tadka.

The acting department is entire of recognised names and they produce what’s predicted of them. Everyone else in position of Bhau Kadam for this function might not have hit the mark, but the ace comic nails each individual punch line whilst retaining a sure stage of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the ideal companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally superior general performance. Neither of these two overpowers each and every other. Sonalee appears to be like attractive no doubt, and she also receives to pack a punch (pretty much) as Usha. The actress’s aspect is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the display screen as Babasaheb Pathare while Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise package in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s very first 50 % is, the film loses rate in the 2nd fifty percent. However the climax earns some brownie factors, the film does not make a entire turnaround. There are some supporting figures extra for comedian reduction, but doing absent with some of them wouldn’t actually have produced a lot of a big difference. Hemangi Kavi, for example, does not have considerably to do in addition to creating Mhadu’s married existence, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All mentioned and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the highlight of the film. That’s also what most people would go to enjoy the movie for. The two really do not disappoint. The exact are not able to be claimed about the movie as a total however.
