Though P.U.C. is a message oriented film, the directors have taken care to see that the film does not have smell of a documentary. It is made like any entertaining commercial film with good comedy elements and action thrown in the narration of the film. The result is that you see the film and enjoy and also enlighten. Students should see the film again and again to reform themselves if they have deviated from the path of learning exercise.
The story of the film revolves around Bhavish, a young man from a lower middle school family whose parents struggle to get their son educated. Bhavish is studious and hard working student, but loses his sight to love a girl. And then his worries start. He loses interest in studies and focuses mainly on pleasing his lover. The result is that he can not get admitted to Engineering course. Finally he realises his mistakes and reform. Alternatively the story of other students who miss the bus are also shown and how a studious person gets a bright future.
Young artiste Chethan Chandra has done a good job in his first film. He has given a lively performance. Harshika Poonachcha has good looks and this Kannada girl can go places if used properly. It is veterans like Avinash, Vinaya Prakash and Ramakrishna who make a good impact with their performance.
Raviraj's music is a highlight of the film. The cinematographic work is also top class.
P.U.C. is one good film you should not miss.
