The late Dada Kondke has influenced an full generation of viewers, filmmakers and actors in Maharashtra, and Pandu is a testimony of that. No, it truly 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 genuine to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with a single sole reason – that of entertaining the masses. And who superior to do that than two of the most well known comedians from the industry?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike team up for this comedy, generating it the first time for the two to be performing collectively on the major display. 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 performance, Babasaheb fulfils their desire of executing a position for livelihood and gets them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement force. What follows is a comedy of faults, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double meaning jokes is a tricky region. It demands to have just the proper balance a little fewer can make it drab, and a minor much more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a equilibrium, making you giggle with just the appropriate tadka.

The performing section is total of recognised names and they produce what’s expected of them. Any person else in place of Bhau Kadam for this job may possibly not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails every single punch line though retaining a specified stage of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the excellent companion to Bhau’s Pandu and delivers an similarly very good general performance. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee seems beautiful no question, and she also will get to pack a punch (basically) as Usha. The actress’s section is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the display as Babasaheb Pathare even though Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s initial half is, the film loses pace in the second 50 percent. While the climax earns some brownie points, the movie doesn’t make a complete turnaround. There are some supporting figures included for comic aid, but performing away with some of them would not definitely have manufactured substantially of a variation. Hemangi Kavi, for instance, doesn’t have a lot to do apart from creating Mhadu’s married lifetime, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All mentioned and done, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the movie. That is also what most persons would go to enjoy the movie for. The two really don’t disappoint. The identical are unable to be stated about the film as a whole even though.
