Though i like Joy Mukherjee films, at least some of them, this movie is really, really, really bad! The general idea of this movie has been done to death in Hindi movies (most recently in the Amitabh classic Hum with Kadar khan in the scientist role) but this movie not only takes the cake, it takes the kitchen! The general premise of the movie is taken from a Paul Newman / Edward Robinson classic. But whats more the title of this movie Puruskaar is a direct lift of that movie which is titled The Prize. Puruskaar is very cheap, amateurish and has really BAD acting. Besides Joy Mukherjee the movie stars I.S. Johar, Farida Jalaal and the always pleasing Faryal. Like those Biswajeet movies from yore, the hero is a secret agent trying to solve a case. I wont even go into the case... save yourself some money (or if you d......d movies, save yourself time and do not , i repeat, do not watch this movie.
