The late Dada Kondke has encouraged an whole era 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 won’t make tall claims it stays true to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with a person sole function – that of entertaining the masses. And who improved to do that than two of the most nicely identified comedians from the market?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, generating it the first time for the two to be performing together on the big screen. The film commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) carrying out at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Joyful with their functionality, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of accomplishing a work for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police power. What follows is a comedy of problems, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double which means jokes is a tricky location. It requirements to have just the proper harmony a minor less can make it drab, and a small much more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a equilibrium, creating you snicker with just the correct tadka.

The performing office is comprehensive of known names and they supply what is predicted of them. Anyone else in put of Bhau Kadam for this part may not have hit the mark, but the ace comedian nails each and every punch line even though retaining a specified level of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the best companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally superior functionality. Neither of these two overpowers every single other. Sonalee seems to be lovely no doubt, and she also receives to pack a punch (virtually) as Usha. The actress’s portion is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the display screen as Babasaheb Pathare while Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock bundle in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s initial fifty percent is, the film loses rate in the 2nd 50 percent. Nevertheless the climax earns some brownie factors, the movie doesn’t make a comprehensive turnaround. There are some supporting people additional for comic aid, but doing absent with some of them would not genuinely have designed substantially of a distinction. Hemangi Kavi, for instance, doesn’t have a great deal to do aside from developing Mhadu’s married lifestyle, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All stated and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the movie. That is also what most individuals would go to observe the movie for. The two never disappoint. The identical simply cannot be stated about the film as a full however.
