The late Dada Kondke has inspired an whole generation 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 won’t make tall claims it stays legitimate to the essence of Dada Kondke’s films, with just one sole intent – that of entertaining the masses. And who far better to do that than two of the most effectively recognised comedians from the business?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike staff up for this comedy, generating it the 1st time for the two to be acting together on the massive monitor. The film commences with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) accomplishing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Joyful with their functionality, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of performing 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 meaning jokes is a challenging location. It needs to have just the proper equilibrium a minor much less can make it drab, and a minimal extra can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, creating you giggle with just the ideal tadka.

The performing section is entire of regarded names and they supply what’s expected of them. Everyone else in location of Bhau Kadam for this job may well not have strike the mark, but the ace comic nails each punch line although retaining a selected level of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the perfect companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally great performance. Neither of these two overpowers every single other. Sonalee looks beautiful no doubt, and she also will get to pack a punch (literally) as Usha. The actress’s aspect is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the display as Babasaheb Pathare although Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise offer in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s first 50 percent is, the film loses pace in the 2nd 50 %. Though the climax earns some brownie details, the movie doesn’t make a finish turnaround. There are some supporting people additional for comedian relief, but performing away with some of them wouldn’t genuinely have made much of a difference. Hemangi Kavi, for illustration, doesn’t have much to do moreover establishing Mhadu’s married existence, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All said and performed, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the highlight of the movie. That’s also what most persons would go to look at the movie for. The two never disappoint. The very same can not be stated about the movie as a complete though.
