The late Dada Kondke has impressed an whole technology 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 iconic Pandu Hawaldar, but a tribute to Dada Kondke.

Pandu does not make tall promises it stays accurate to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with one particular sole objective – that of entertaining the masses. And who improved to do that than two of the most effectively acknowledged comedians from the sector?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike workforce up for this comedy, earning it the very first time for the two to be acting with each other on the huge monitor. The film commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) performing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Pleased with their general performance, Babasaheb fulfils their want of undertaking a position for livelihood and gets them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police power. What follows is a comedy of faults, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double which means jokes is a difficult region. It requirements to have just the right equilibrium a little significantly less can make it drab, and a very little more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, creating you snicker with just the correct tadka.

The performing department is complete of regarded names and they deliver what is anticipated of them. Anybody else in spot of Bhau Kadam for this purpose might not have hit the mark, but the ace comedian nails every punch line when retaining a specific stage of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the perfect companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally excellent functionality. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee appears to be lovely no question, and she also will get to pack a punch (literally) as Usha. The actress’s aspect is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde instructions the display screen as Babasaheb Pathare while Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s first 50 percent is, the film loses speed in the second 50 percent. Nevertheless the climax earns some brownie points, the movie does not make a full turnaround. There are some supporting people extra for comic reduction, but carrying out absent with some of them would not truly have produced considerably of a change. Hemangi Kavi, for case in point, doesn’t have considerably to do aside from establishing Mhadu’s married daily life, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All mentioned and performed, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the film. Which is also what most men and women would go to check out the movie for. The two don’t disappoint. The same simply cannot be reported about the film as a whole nevertheless.
