Print processing status in script

I have a script n which i have line like this

echo "enter option"
retrive
cat /tmp/file1

in the above "retrive" is a function that performs some operaion and writes the o/p to a file and i will cat the file after that. the operation of "retirve" will take some time and i need to print the status while it is processing ...

say the print should be "retriving data ......" until it completes.. pl suggest
