The late Dada Kondke has inspired an full era of viewers, filmmakers and actors in Maharashtra, and Pandu is a testimony of that. No, it’s not a remake or sequel of Dada Kondke’s iconic Pandu Hawaldar, but a tribute to Dada Kondke.

Pandu does not make tall claims it stays correct to the essence of Dada Kondke’s movies, with 1 sole goal – that of entertaining the masses. And who improved to do that than two of the most nicely recognized comedians from the market?

Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike group up for this comedy, generating it the initially time for the two to be acting jointly on the big display. The movie begins with the Bhau (Pandu) and Kushal (Mhadu) performing at a programme in honour of politician Babasaheb Pathare (Pravin Tarde). Happy with their performance, Babasaheb fulfils their would like of accomplishing a occupation for livelihood and will get them inducted as Hawaldars in the Mumbai police drive. What follows is a comedy of problems, twists and turns, and a hatke climax.

Comedy with double indicating jokes is a difficult region. It requirements to have just the suitable balance a small less can make it drab, and a tiny additional can make it crass. Director Viju Mane manages to strike a harmony, building you chuckle with just the suitable tadka.

The acting department is full of acknowledged names and they produce what is anticipated of them. Anybody else in area of Bhau Kadam for this part may possibly not have strike the mark, but the ace comedian nails every single punch line though retaining a specific amount of innocence. Kushal as Mhadu is the best companion to Bhau’s Pandu and provides an equally great efficiency. Neither of these two overpowers every other. Sonalee looks attractive no doubt, and she also gets to pack a punch (practically) as Usha. The actress’s portion is pivotal to Pandu’s plot. Pravin Tarde commands the monitor as Babasaheb Pathare even though Prajakta Mali emerges as a surprise deal in this equation as Babasaheb’s daughter.

As entertaining as Pandu’s initially fifty percent is, the film loses pace in the 2nd half. Nevertheless the climax earns some brownie details, the film does not make a complete turnaround. There are some supporting figures extra for comic relief, but accomplishing absent with some of them would not truly have made a great deal of a variance. Hemangi Kavi, for illustration, doesn’t have substantially to do other than setting up Mhadu’s married lifetime, nor does Shahbaz Khan.

All reported and finished, Bhau Kadam and Kushal Badrike’s camaraderie is the spotlight of the movie. That is also what most persons would go to look at the movie for. The two don’t disappoint. The exact cannot be mentioned about the movie as a entire nevertheless.
