Pandu doesn’t make tall claims it stays legitimate to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with 1 sole reason – that of entertaining the masses. And who greater to do that than two of the most effectively known comedians from the sector?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike workforce up for this comedy, producing it the to start with time for the two to be acting collectively on the big display screen. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) carrying out at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Joyful with their effectiveness, Babasaheb fulfils their want of undertaking a task for livelihood and will get 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 indicating jokes is a tough place. It needs to have just the correct stability a very little significantly less can make it drab, and a minor additional can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, generating you chuckle with just the appropriate tadka.
The performing department is comprehensive of recognised names and they produce what is envisioned of them. Anyone else in spot of Bhau Kadam for this part could not have hit the mark, but the ace comedian nails every punch line although retaining a specified degree of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the best companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an equally superior general performance. Neither of these two overpowers every single other. Sonalee seems wonderful no doubt, and she also receives to pack a punch (pretty much) as Usha. The actress’s part is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the monitor as Babasaheb Pathare even though Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise package deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s initial fifty percent is, the movie loses speed in the next fifty percent. However the climax earns some brownie factors, the film doesn’t make a finish turnaround. There are some supporting figures added for comedian relief, but performing absent with some of them would not truly have designed considerably of a big difference. Hemangi Kavi, for example, does not have substantially to do apart from creating Mhadu’s married lifestyle, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All said and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the movie. That’s also what most people today would go to check out the film for. The two never disappoint. The exact same simply cannot be reported about the film as a total although.
