Time-Pass Movie!
Pukar directed by Ramesh Behl is a time-pass movie.

It does not have anything new or extra-ordinary to offer.

Story: Although India obtained freedom from the British in 1947, Goa and it's territories are still ruled by the Portuguese. A group of revolutionaries want a free Goa and are thus wanted by the Portuguese administration. Amongst them are Purandare, Narvekar, and Dinanath, and when Dinanath's whereabouts are known to the police, he escapes with his young son, Ramdas(Amitabh Bachchan), and goes to their hideout. With the assistance of Purandare they do manage to escape but are shot. A horrified Ramdas watches as his dad is shot dead by Purandare. This is how Ramdas starts hating revolutionaries. Ramdas changes his name to Ronnie, befriends a girl named Julie, and grows up taking to crime as his career. He soon prospers and lets the villagers also prosper with him. Then when the Police Commissioner is shot dead, Ronnie helps the authorities to apprehend his killer, who is a young man named Shekhar(Randhir Kapor), who is arrested, tried in Court, and sentenced to be hanged. It is at this point Ronnie will find out that the people he had assisted in the past are all against him and sympathize with the revolutionaries. Angered, he grabs a gun to kill Shekhar's parents - and it is here that Ronnie will find out who they really are - and why Purandare shot his dad.

The story is good.

The direction is average.

The music is okay.

The dialogs are well-worded.

Performances: Amitabh Bachchan is superb.Randhir Kapoor is very good.Tina Munim and Parveen Babi are wasted.Prem Chopra excels in a small role.Pinchoo Kapoor and Sharat Saxena are fine in supporting roles.

All in all Pukar is a time-pass movie!
