A mass film need not necessarily be one without a story or substance. But many filmmakers in their hurry to pack the movie with formulaic ingredients ,generally forget the thing called a realistic story. In the event, what happens is a senseless mishmash of action and romance all in the name of entertainment.

Pandu seems a good example of that. The film has every facet of filmmaking sans a good story. And that in the end proves a major handicap.

The story is about the eponymous hero Pandu (Jagapathy Babu) and his love with TV show anchor Anjali (Sneha).Trouble comes in the form of a rogue politician who has a covetous eye on Anjali. When she rebuffs him, she is jailed on a foisted charge. So steps in Pandu to help her and bring the nefararious activities of the politician out in the open.

It is not a old story and smells of mothballs.

The lead actors too seem to act from memory. Jagapathi Babu is okay. But the usual spark is missing. Sneha in a lachrymose role wets many hankies. Madhu Sharma provides the glamour.

The rest have nothing much to offer.

Mani Sharma's music grates. Director Devi Prasad has done remakes previously. In his first original attempt, there is hardly anything original.

How tragic!
