Kondke’s ribald crazy comedy hit, a change from his usual rural Tamasha-derived formula, continues the director-star’s fondness for sexual puns, as in the song Aho havaldar majhya kulupachi chavi haravli (‘I lost the key to my lock’). Pandu Havaldar (Kondke) is a corrupt cop, a comical figure whose costume undermines any effort to appear authoritative, and an ally of Paru Kelewali, a fruitseller with links to a smuggling ring. The gang is smashed and the cop humanised through the unashamedly sentimental use of a deaf-and- dumb woman he rescues.
Pandu Hawaldar gave Marathi film industry a new star Ashok Saraf,who was appreciated by the audiences than Dada Kondke.
