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

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

Pandu would not make tall statements it stays accurate to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with just one sole function – that of entertaining the masses. And who superior to do that than two of the most nicely recognised comedians from the market?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike group up for this comedy, earning it the initial time for the two to be acting with each other on the large screen. The film commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) executing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Joyful with their overall performance, Babasaheb fulfils their want of carrying out a work for livelihood and will get 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 meaning jokes is a tricky location. It requires to have just the appropriate harmony a very little considerably less can make it drab, and a minimal far more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a stability, making you chuckle with just the right tadka.

The performing department is full of recognized names and they produce what’s anticipated of them. Anyone else in spot of Bhau Kadam for this purpose may perhaps not have hit the mark, but the ace comedian nails just about every punch line although retaining a certain amount of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the fantastic companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally very good effectiveness. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee appears gorgeous no question, and she also will get to pack a punch (virtually) as Usha. The actress’s component is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the display screen as Babasaheb Pathare while Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise offer in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s initial 50 percent is, the film loses speed in the second fifty percent. Although the climax earns some brownie points, the movie does not make a complete turnaround. There are some supporting figures extra for comic relief, but doing away with some of them would not genuinely have made substantially of a difference. Hemangi Kavi, for illustration, doesn’t have considerably to do aside from setting up Mhadu’s married existence, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All explained and carried out, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the highlight of the movie. That’s also what most people today would go to watch the movie for. The two really do not disappoint. The similar can not be said about the film as a whole though.
