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

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

Pandu will not make tall claims it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with one particular sole goal – that of entertaining the masses. And who improved to do that than two of the most nicely recognized comedians from the business?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike group up for this comedy, generating it the to start with time for the two to be acting collectively on the huge monitor. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) accomplishing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Pleased with their functionality, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of performing a job for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement drive. What follows is a comedy of mistakes, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double this means jokes is a tricky spot. It demands to have just the proper equilibrium a minimal significantly less can make it drab, and a tiny much more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a stability, earning you laugh with just the right tadka.

The performing division is comprehensive of acknowledged names and they produce what’s envisioned of them. Everyone else in location of Bhau Kadam for this job may not have hit the mark, but the ace comedian nails each and every punch line although retaining a selected amount of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the great companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally excellent general performance. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee seems to be stunning no doubt, and she also will get to pack a punch (virtually) as Usha. The actress’s section is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the screen as Babasaheb Pathare although Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s initial 50 % is, the film loses speed in the second fifty percent. Even though the climax earns some brownie points, the film does not make a total turnaround. There are some supporting characters included for comic aid, but carrying out away with some of them would not truly have designed a lot of a big difference. Hemangi Kavi, for case in point, doesn’t have a great deal to do other than developing Mhadu’s married lifestyle, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All claimed and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the film. That’s also what most people today would go to enjoy the movie for. The two do not disappoint. The similar can not be claimed about the film as a entire while.
