Television Review: Pukaar – Full Of Cliches, This One Is Criminally Bad

pukaar-02It’s bizarre, it’s illogical and it’s fake; well we are talking about Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s Pukaar, the new show on Life OK.

Amar Shergill (Raj Babbar) has three sons – Major Rajveer Shergill (Rannvijay Singh), Yuvi Shergill (Dishank Arora) who is dead and Rahul  Shergill (Manish Nawani).

Both elder sons are in the army, while his third son stayed out of the regime and became a lawyer. His second son passed away and the father blames Rajveer for not taking care of him. He cuts his ties with Rajveer and proclaims that now he has only one son – Rahul.

On his father’s sixtieth birthday Rahul requests his brother, Major Rajveer, to patch up with their father and celebrate with them. Rajveer comes with hope but he is rejected by their father. Rahul goes to Rastogi (Prashant Narayan) for legal work and comes to know the business magnate’s vicious plan to acquire a piece of land.

When Rastogi comes to know that Rahul has copied this sensitive information on a pen drive, he kidnaps him and tortures him to know the location of the drive. How Rajveer finds his brother, gets his place back in the family and saves the day forms the rest of the story.

Pukaar is full of illogical incidents, knowing the maker behind this one it comes as a rude shock. The lack of a script is also telling in Pukaar and as expected the screenplay is full of glitches. All the characters except for the obvious Major Rajveer Shergill disappear from the narrative as and when required.

When the show started, it seemed like Major Rajveer was indeed a superman. Logically no one knows how the Major was in the vicinity of a hostage situation when his camp is much further from the location. Every time Rajveer beats up a kidnappers, why does it suddenly start raining. What amusing is the fact that we see him driving a bike into a lake and then practically flying out of the lake to the bus!!

A regressive and illogical though of the elder brother held accountable for the death of his younger brother while he was serving in the army is so sad, but it seems the writes and makes of the show are out there to prove that it’s their version of an army man, who is a super hero at times, juvenile most of the time and illogical all the time. Oops!!

There are so many loops holes or should we se craters in the script that we cannot even begin to count.

All in all, Pukaar is a show that looks very shoddy and immature and best be missed.
