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

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

Pandu doesn’t make tall statements it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with one sole goal – that of entertaining the masses. And who far better to do that than two of the most very well identified comedians from the marketplace?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, making it the initial time for the two to be performing collectively on the huge monitor. The movie commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) performing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Happy with their overall performance, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of carrying out a position for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement force. What follows is a comedy of glitches, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double indicating jokes is a tricky location. It requirements to have just the proper equilibrium a tiny fewer can make it drab, and a tiny extra can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a balance, building you giggle with just the right tadka.

The performing department is full of recognized names and they supply what is envisioned of them. Anyone else in place of Bhau Kadam for this role could not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails just about every punch line although retaining a particular stage of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the perfect companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an equally fantastic performance. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee seems gorgeous no question, and she also receives to pack a punch (pretty much) as Usha. The actress’s portion is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the display as Babasaheb Pathare while Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock offer in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s very first half is, the film loses rate in the next 50 %. Though the climax earns some brownie factors, the film doesn’t make a total turnaround. There are some supporting characters added for comedian aid, but doing absent with some of them would not genuinely have built much of a change. Hemangi Kavi, for example, does not have a great deal to do besides setting up Mhadu’s married lifetime, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All said and accomplished, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the highlight of the film. Which is also what most individuals would go to look at the movie for. The two really do not disappoint. The same can’t be claimed about the film as a full however.
