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

The late Dada Kondke has encouraged an entire generation 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 promises it stays true to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with one sole reason – that of entertaining the masses. And who much better to do that than two of the most well recognized comedians from the marketplace?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike workforce up for this comedy, creating it the first time for the two to be performing together on the big monitor. The film begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) executing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Content with their efficiency, Babasaheb fulfils their wish of undertaking a task for livelihood and receives them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police pressure. What follows is a comedy of errors, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double which means jokes is a challenging place. It requires to have just the appropriate balance a very little fewer can make it drab, and a small far more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a balance, creating you snicker with just the suitable tadka.

The acting section is full of recognized names and they produce what’s predicted of them. Any individual else in put of Bhau Kadam for this role may well not have strike the mark, but the ace comic nails each and every punch line while retaining a selected amount of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the perfect companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an equally superior overall performance. Neither of these two overpowers each individual other. Sonalee appears gorgeous no doubt, and she also will get to pack a punch (virtually) as Usha. The actress’s section is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the screen as Babasaheb Pathare whilst Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s to start with fifty percent is, the film loses rate in the second half. However the climax earns some brownie details, the movie does not make a total turnaround. There are some supporting characters additional for comedian aid, but carrying out away with some of them wouldn’t definitely have produced a lot of a variation. Hemangi Kavi, for instance, doesn’t have much to do aside from setting up Mhadu’s married lifetime, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All explained and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the movie. Which is also what most people would go to view the movie for. The two really do not disappoint. The exact same can not be claimed about the movie as a total nevertheless.
