To push process or not??

Now to my question. Even with 7821 500 I was only getting a reading of f2.0 on the guys face. My lens only opens up to f2.8. So I was under-exposing by a full stop the whole time. Will I get better results processing normally and tweaking in post or shall I push process the film? And by how much? It's a night time scene but I want to avoid milky blacks - I want it punchy

If for some reason you meant 7218, and this is for telecine only, I'd just develop normally because pushing isn't going to increase the shadow detail that got recorded anyway. You can reset the blacks in post and perhaps do digital grain reduction if necessary.
