Pandu would not make tall statements it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with just one sole purpose – that of entertaining the masses. And who much better to do that than two of the most properly recognised comedians from the marketplace?
Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike staff up for this comedy, building it the first time for the two to be performing alongside one another on the large display screen. The film commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) doing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Content with their efficiency, Babasaheb fulfils their want of accomplishing a career for livelihood and will get them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police drive. What follows is a comedy of errors, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.
Comedy with double that means jokes is a tricky region. It requires to have just the right equilibrium a little less can make it drab, and a tiny additional can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a balance, generating you giggle with just the correct tadka.
The acting section is full of identified names and they produce what’s anticipated of them. Any person else in put of Bhau Kadam for this role could not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails each punch line while retaining a specific amount of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the great companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally superior performance. Neither of these two overpowers each other. Sonalee looks attractive no doubt, and she also receives to pack a punch (basically) as Usha. The actress’s part is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the screen as Babasaheb Pathare when Prajakta Mali emerges as a shock package in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.
As entertaining as Pandu’s initially 50 % is, the movie loses pace in the next 50 %. Nevertheless the climax earns some brownie factors, the film doesn’t make a finish turnaround. There are some supporting people added for comedian reduction, but doing absent with some of them wouldn’t seriously have created a lot of a difference. Hemangi Kavi, for case in point, doesn’t have significantly to do besides establishing Mhadu’s married existence, nor does Shahbaz Khan.
All said and finished, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the film. Which is also what most persons would go to view the movie for. The two do not disappoint. The exact same can not be said about the film as a whole even though.
