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).
