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

The late Dada Kondke has influenced an overall era of viewers, filmmakers and actors in Maharashtra, and Pandu is a testimony of that. No, it can be not a remake or sequel of Dada Kondke’s legendary Pandu Hawaldar, but a tribute to Dada Kondke.

Pandu does not make tall claims it stays true to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with one particular sole function – that of entertaining the masses. And who much better to do that than two of the most very well known comedians from the sector?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike workforce up for this comedy, creating it the 1st time for the two to be acting with each other on the large display. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) executing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Content with their performance, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of performing a position for livelihood and gets 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 that means jokes is a challenging space. It requirements to have just the ideal harmony a very little less can make it drab, and a tiny a lot more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a balance, generating you giggle with just the appropriate tadka.

The acting office is comprehensive of recognized names and they supply what is anticipated of them. Any individual else in location of Bhau Kadam for this role could not have strike the mark, but the ace comic nails each and every punch line although retaining a sure degree of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the ideal companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an equally very good efficiency. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee appears to be like lovely no doubt, and she also gets to pack a punch (pretty much) as Usha. The actress’s part is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the display as Babasaheb Pathare though Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock package deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s initially 50 percent is, the film loses rate in the 2nd fifty percent. While the climax earns some brownie details, the film doesn’t make a comprehensive turnaround. There are some supporting characters extra for comic aid, but executing away with some of them would not truly have manufactured a great deal of a variation. Hemangi Kavi, for case in point, doesn’t have substantially to do aside from establishing Mhadu’s married lifestyle, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All mentioned and completed, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the film. That is also what most individuals would go to check out the film for. The two don’t disappoint. The similar can’t be said about the film as a complete although.
