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

The late Dada Kondke has encouraged an complete 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 would not make tall statements it stays true to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with one sole purpose – that of entertaining the masses. And who better to do that than two of the most nicely known comedians from the industry?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, making it the initial time for the two to be performing together on the massive display. The movie starts with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) doing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Content with their overall performance, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of doing a task for livelihood and will get them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police force. What follows is a comedy of problems, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double meaning jokes is a tough spot. It requires to have just the appropriate stability a minor fewer can make it drab, and a minor far more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a balance, generating you chuckle with just the suitable tadka.

The acting division is whole of known names and they supply what’s expected of them. Everyone else in put of Bhau Kadam for this position might not have hit the mark, but the ace comic nails just about every punch line though retaining a sure level of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the fantastic companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally fantastic performance. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee appears to be like lovely no question, and she also receives to pack a punch (basically) as Usha. The actress’s section is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the display screen as Babasaheb Pathare while Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock offer in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s 1st fifty percent is, the film loses pace in the next fifty percent. While the climax earns some brownie points, the movie doesn’t make a comprehensive turnaround. There are some supporting people additional for comic relief, but carrying out away with some of them wouldn’t genuinely have made significantly of a variance. Hemangi Kavi, for illustration, does not have a great deal to do in addition to establishing Mhadu’s married life, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All explained and completed, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the movie. That’s also what most individuals would go to look at the movie for. The two do not disappoint. The same can not be explained about the film as a entire even though.
