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 is really not a remake or sequel of Dada Kondke’s iconic Pandu Hawaldar, but a tribute to Dada Kondke.

Pandu won’t make tall promises it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with a single sole intent – that of entertaining the masses. And who much better to do that than two of the most very well regarded comedians from the business?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike crew up for this comedy, making it the very first time for the two to be acting alongside one another on the significant screen. The film commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) undertaking at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Pleased with their functionality, Babasaheb fulfils their want of undertaking a career for livelihood and will get them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai law enforcement force. What follows is a comedy of glitches, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double which means jokes is a tough space. It wants to have just the suitable harmony a very little significantly less can make it drab, and a tiny far more can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, creating you laugh with just the correct tadka.

The acting department is full of identified names and they supply what’s anticipated of them. Anybody else in area of Bhau Kadam for this job may not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails each individual punch line whilst retaining a selected stage of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the excellent companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an similarly excellent effectiveness. Neither of these two overpowers each and every other. Sonalee seems lovely no doubt, and she also receives to pack a punch (literally) 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 shock package in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s initially 50 % is, the movie loses tempo in the second 50 percent. Even though the climax earns some brownie points, the film does not make a entire turnaround. There are some supporting figures included for comic relief, but undertaking absent with some of them wouldn’t definitely have made considerably of a variation. Hemangi Kavi, for illustration, does not have a great deal to do besides creating Mhadu’s married existence, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All explained and finished, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the emphasize of the movie. That’s also what most individuals would go to observe the film for. The two really do not disappoint. The exact can’t be explained about the film as a whole though.
