ปูจ๋า or Pu Ja is a 1967 Thai movie directed by Dokdin Kanyaman. 47 minutes only are left. Normally Thai 16mm movies from decade 1960s used to be made of 4 to 5 reels. One reel lasts around 40 minutes. There is no sound available for this movie as 16mm movies are always dubbed. So understanding the whole movie is quite difficult. Petchara Chaowarat (ปู) is a young lady. Her close friends are Dokdin Kanyaman and Orasa Isarangkul. Sawin Sawangrat, Petchara’s father, is a fisherman. Petchara and Dokdin are caught in a military exercise including a beach landing. They meet Mitr Chaibancha, who is an officer. Petchara and Mitr appreciate each other. Mitr rescues a young lady who is about to be drowned. Later on Mitr and his friend Adul mingle (จู๋จี๋) with those two ladies (Chadaporn Wachirapranee and another veteran actress). Petchara, aware of this, is disappointed by Mitr. Petchara’s blind grandmother is played by veteran actress Malee Wetpraseri. It is Petchara’s birthday. Adul changes the content of a gift offered by Mitr. It is a trick to spoil love between Mitr and Petchara as it starts to emerge. He then offers a proper gift to Petchara. Sawin prevents both of them to fight and asks Petchara to go back home. It seems that Chadaporn is unhappy with Sawin and asks him to push Petchara away from Mitr. Following a fishing trip, Sawin falls in the sea during a storm. Petchara and Dokdin need to find a job and then work as coolie in a construction site. Police officer Adul looks for them as it is found that Petchara is a descendant of a rich family. Sawin isn't dead. it seems he will cause issue to Petchara but love with Mitr will of course succeed. In this 1967 period, Petchara Chaowarat had short haircut. As usual with Dokdin Kanyaman’s movies, there is humour, action, romance and good feelings (happy ending).

Chadaporn Wachirapranee is Chat’s old wife so he punches Sompol Kongsuwan to show he is back. Chao Klaewklong introduces Chat to Kecha. Kecha is looking for a new right-hand man (แขนขวาคนใหม่) as Yot betrayed him. Kecha wishes Chat to get rid of Yot. Ratsamee (Petchara Chaowarat) loves Yot but Yot also loves Pai Lu, who is in fact an undercover policewoman from Hong Kong. Ratsamee warns Yot that Adul is around looking for him. Pai Lu and Ratsamee escape from Adul but get arrested by policeman Lor Tok, who ignore they are from Interpol Police (ตำรวจสากล). A painting called เพชรตัดเพชร is purchased by Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit bidding against Kecha. Miss Boran (Kaenjai Meenakanit) is the sexy painter.

This movie is still available in Hong Kong under title 諜海蛟龍 and was shown on cable TV. The famous song of this movie is ดวงใจ by singer สวลี ผกาพันธุ์. This movie is one of the best confrontations between Thai superstars Mitr Chaibancha and Luechai Natnat.

Mitr Chaibancha and Petchara Chaowarat are displayed in small size. But the Thai poster displays more prominently Mitr Chaibancha and Petchara Chaowarat. In the Chinese synopsis, Mitr Chaibancha is written as mi-tsai- wan-chai (Thai detective No 78) and called as Ah Tsai in the movie. Regina Pai Ping (Hong Kong agent No 113) is called as Pai Lu in the movie. Petchara Chaowarat is written as Pi-chai-la and called as Sha Mei in the movie. The movie was so famous that it was released once in year 1966 and then reshown again in year 1975. The original version lasts 2h20mn but the 1975 version was reduced to less than 2 hours as both movies เพชรตัดเพชร and คนเหนือคน were shown together. The DVD released by company Pantamit is based on the 1975 version. It took five years for company Pantamit to convince the film owner to lend it in order to make a digital copy.

Then in the morning the second friend is found dead also. According to the temple keeper, they die because of lying and unfaithful behavior with ladies. The temple keeper is a sorcerer (หมอผี) also. Marut meets Dao (Petchara Chaowarat), who is a ghost. A love story happens between human and ghost. Marut's mother wants to fiance him with a young lady called Buma (Preeya Roongrueng) coming from a rich family. The fiancee Buma is invasive and strongly encourages Marut to kiss her. Marut presents Dao, the ghost, to her mother, who faints when understanding that Dao is a ghost. Lor Tok plays an exorcist master (อาจารย์) again. The grandmother uses him to chase the ghost. Buma supports the idea. Marut wants to bring Dao back to life (เกิดใหม่) but other ghosts try to prevent this. Marut needs to pray every night one hour during 20 days, eat vegetarian (กินเจ), drop blood drops inside the food offered to Dao. Evil ghosts prevent Marut to free Dao but the temple keeper provides support. 20 days have passed. The temple keeper does a ceremony. Dao is now an human (เป็นคน). Issue with Buma arises. Following the kiss, she complains she is soiled (ตัวเสีย) as she wants to accelerate wedding date. The wedding happens but on the night before the wedding Dao becomes Marut's real wife. Buma wants to secure Marut's love by using magic spells so she contacts again the exorcist master. This one provides love filter (น้ำมันพราย). Buma wants to chase Dao. Marut accepts as Buma uses charm filter (ถูกเสน่ห์). Finally as Dao is pregnant with Marut and being already Marut's wife, Buma has to retreat and is finally arrested by police for colluding against Dao. This old movie has an image damaged but still colorful. It also has a new soundtrack as many 1960s movies were shot in 16mm without synchronised sound. It is a pleasure to watch Thai stars Chaiya Suriyun and legendary Petchara Chaowarat. Chaiya Suriyun received a Thai oscar (รางวัลตุ๊กตาทอง) for his best actor performance.
